We honestly can’t think of a better topic for our FIRST EVER blog post than a good old fashioned coastal Maine Lobster Bake…Fire & Co. style. Just in time for the 4th of July we headed out to Peaks Island last week with one of our wood-fired skillets. It’s surprisingly easy to pack this bad boy up in a trailer or back of a truck and head out on a car ferry to the island.
Once we arrived on Peaks Island it was time to ride around (top down of course) the backside of the island in search of the perfect spot. Once found, we backed the Jeep in and unloaded the skillet. In true Maine lobster bake tradition seaweed is a must, and what better way to source it than right on site on the coast of Maine?! Once the seaweed was collected and supplies were readied, including one of our favorite brews, Rising Tide Brewing’s MITA, it was time to fire up the skillet.
Wood and the know how to start a fire are the only things you need to use one of our original skillets. It was such a treat setting up on the rocks and enjoying the lobster bake, I mean how much better can it get?! – The rocky coastline of Maine, fresh, local lobster, oysters, and clams from Harbor Fish Market, ice cold brewskis, and an incredible view.
