I use this recipe but tweak it a little. I use 1/3 cup sugar instead of 1/4 cup and I use half the oil but add softened butter. Sometimes I’ll add a little bacon grease instead of oil. I also use 2 whole eggs instead of one to firm the texture up. 

Its a good basic recipe unaltered so you don’t have to tweak it. I’m sure it’s not as good as age old family recipes if your lucky enough to have some. My family likes it more on the sweet side. I always taste the batter before I bake it. That will let you know right away if the sweetness and flavor will be to your liking.

The cheddar jalapeño version, I do this recipe but mix in finely chopped jarred or fresh jalapeño and shredded cheddar cheese with some reserved to sprinkle on top.

I double the recipe if using a 12” lodge. An 8 or 10 inch skillet is better for a single batch. I spray a cold skillet with cooking spray and pour the batter in and bake it.

The only cornbread anyone makes in my area is jiffy mix. I think homemade blows jiffy mix away and is still really easy.

I love this thread. You guys creativity is outstanding.

I was going to ask how big a cast iron pot you could put on a 22 inch kettle without breaking the grill but I see some honking big pots and pans in the pics here...
