The cast iron goose pot

This is an enameled cast iron goose pot. It's 15 1/2 quarts, and 19 1/2 inches wide.

Be sure you measure your oven before you get this. It costs $500.

It's called a goose pot because it can cook a whole goose. Or turkey, or pork shoulder, or three chickens, or a huge batch of soup or stew.

Because it's enameled, it can't be used outdoors, and it's too large to be used on an electric stove. Possibly on a gas stove with a large burner.

A consumer reports that it's great for canning.

There are no regular cast iron goose pots that I know of, and the largest pot that Lodge makes is 9 quarts (or a 12 quart camp oven).

I'm not sure if you can fit a goose in the 9 quart pot. I intend to try fitting a 12 pound turkey in it soon.

Bayou classic makes larger pots, but their quality cast iron is not great.
