I dropped by Tractor Supply this evening to see if they had a Lodge dutch oven for camping and such, and the normal shelf where they are was bare., so I figured what the hell I'd look at the clearance stuff. Walked around the isle, and seen a whole isle of cast iron. Now it's not Lodge brand, it's Red Stone (made for TSC), and yes it's made in China unfortunately. They had skillets, tea kettles, dutch ovens, griddles, all on clearance!!!
I went for a dutch oven, and figured what the hell for $14.99 I'm not out much, they had 2, so I picked them both up
May not be exactly as good as a Lodge, but for what I'll be using it for (soup, stew, taters, ect.) it'll do just fine. Says pre-seasoned too, although I'll probably hit it again or fry some bacon in it
So, if you got a Tractor Supply near by, and want some cheap cast iron, go for it!
