Cast iron and tin foil

ILuvGrub | Jan 3, 2013 07:20 AM

Hi all -
Getting ready to cook a pork shoulder in my enamel coated dutch oven. I have seen some suggestions to cover the pot with tin foil and then put the lid on. My question is about how tin foil reacts with cast I know it does. On the rim of the dutch oven, there is some cast iron that's exposed. Given the fact that this 8 lb. piece of meat will likely be cooking for 12 or so hours, do I need to worry about corrosion? I do know I can just do without the foil, but curious minds like mine want to know : )
