15% off so it was $16.95 plus tax out the door at Fleet Farm.
Washed it really well with a scrubby and a stiff brush with soapy water after bringing is home.
This is after baking for an hour at 400˚ twice. I heated it up on the stovetop on low to open the pores and let the bacon grease soak in before wiping it out. I did 1 1/2 lb. of thick sliced jalapeño bacon this morning on the Coleman stove outside on the deck. Wiped it out and put it on the stove til it smoked. Cooled and wiped it again with bacon grease. Doesn't take long to cool at 12˚ outside.
