Authentic Chinese BBQ??

So you're looking for authentic Chinese BBQ in the Midtown area? humm.. welp. That might be a challenge.

I get lunch from here from time to time, and their bbq is one of the best in Manhattan.

Brand new Lodge cast iron skillet - what to cook first?

Now.. what kind of oil does everyone recommend when cooking with a pre-seasoned cast iron? My friend said she's been using coconut oil and that works for her because it's got a high smoke point.

Thanks!

Thanks guys! :)

I've tried pork sausage, bacon, deep dish pizza, and so far so good! I'll be cooking some pork chops tonight!

;) I think bacon wins! I love cooking pizza at home so I'll give that a try at some point. @Mr.Nick - I, too, wonder about doing a grilled cheese or something like that (not as the first dish on the cast iron though). I have some sausages I might cook up tonight, and use as my first :)

One more question guys. What kind of oil is best for cooking with the cast iron? I only use extra virgin olive oil for all my cooking. Do I need to use vegetable oil instead with the cast iron? Or can I stick with my EVOO?

Thanks all!
