I'm not saying you are incorrect , BUT I've lived in the south for the past 43 years. And I've never heard the word spider used to mean frying pan :shock:tubbythetuba said:In the south and south-east and even up Ohio, way in the hills, a cast iron skillet is refered to as a spider (spyder?).
I guess I'm just in "Dutch" againLeanwolf said:Ahhhh Tubby ... if a cast iron pot doesn't have three legs and a lid with an upraised rim around the outer edge, it AIN'T a Dutch oven. It's just a cast iron roasting pot, or stew pot. (I've got three of those, too, a deep 12" and two deep 10". Fantastic for use on top of the stove, or in the oven, but no good on a camp fire or on top of charcoal. Camp fires and charcoal are what a Dutch oven is for. )
BTW, I didn't say a spider was a Dutch oven. I said a spider must have three legs, just like a Dutch oven.
Good cooking. L.W.
