    Ok,most times I think tin will get the job done for tortillas ,but I just prefer the rustic nature of a raw cast iron comal.

    What do you prefer?

    I've never seen a comal made out of a hub cap,but I have seen them made from discs to plows,55 gal. drum lids,ect.
    I don't think chrome could be seasoned properly.

    A friend's mom uses a hubcap!

    Her rolling pin is the sawed off leg from a bar stool.

    Mmmmmmmmm.......her tortillias are my absolute favorite food :supergrin:
