    Speaking of garbage finds.... This cast iron griddle measures 11.5" square x 17" handle to handle x 1" high. I was driving to a friend's house and saw this leaning against a pile of refuse waiting to be picked up by the garbage man. For some reason it had been painted matte black. I suppose that someone had been using it as a decoration and didn't want it to rust. I have a largish cast iron collection, so at worst I decided it would be an example of a piece I did not have if I could not clean it up. In the end, though, I had to sandblast it to get it down to bare metal so that I could season it and actually use it. There is a casting error on the cooking surface that looks like a small lump near one side, something I have not seen before or since. I have been using it now for about 15 years for pancakes, etc., and for quite a few years it was my most used piece of cast iron.

    BS&R was in existence from 1902-1993.

      @blunderbuss2 - Agree! I wonder why it didn't occur to whoever tossed this to donate it to a thrift shop!?

      Thanks for loving my garbage find!

      I have a small one like this made by Lodge. Mine is 4 1/2 square at the bottom 5" at the top. Good for one grilled sandwich or egg.
