Anyone have data on heat transfer rate...
Anyone have data on heat transfer rate to a cast iron dutch oven during preheat?
I just did my first bake in my new Lodge 5 quart DO (pictures to come) and I'm wondering whether a full hour preheat at 500 degrees F is necessary. I don't have an infrared thermometer so I don't know how long it took for the DO to reach the target temp nor where it really topped out.
If no one has the data I'll invest in an IR thermometer and run the numbers and share here.
