    Rare find these days, but an old plumber's pot works great, holding maybe 60 pounds.
    I've also used dutch ovens of similar capacity with fine results.
    For cast iron, just don't try to heat cold iron to smelting temp too quickly... let the heat uniformly spread through out the pot as it's heated.
    It's the same reason you don't throw a biscuit oven from the fire into cold water to clean it. A nasty "doink!!!" sound and a proud crack will make you sick-sad.
    Oh by the way, the easiest save I've found for a cracked biscuit oven is JB weld. It works like a champ... fill the crack, sand it smooth, season it carefully like a new pot, and just go cook with it.

    The Original JB Weld is still a good product, but don't waste your money on the New fast setting JB. New doesn't mean better!
