And the very best selection for searing would be an old griswold skillet with rows of raised searing ridges for the bottom. They'll sear it and leave great grill marks behind. I advise you not go this route though because it'll make you want more griswold stuff.

Lodge still makes cast iron skillets but you can usually find some good old cast iron at yard sales, flea markets etc...just clean them good and re-season...

yep, if the cast iron is seasoned properly, pitch in and listen to the sizzle

Cast Iron! Try it in the oven instead of stovetop.

Ive tried it and its great. I ruined my cast iron skillet so I need to purchase something new. I was wondering if there was a something that really stood out that I could buy.

I've never had to do it, but some people claim you can through it in a brush fire and if it doesn't crack it can be saved with a little grease and a few reheats.

I have some Lodge Cast that are handy, but my favorite is my Le Creuset grill pan. Some people say the Lodge ceramic stuff is similar and it's a lot cheaper.

It's not ruined, just need to buff it down/start over re-seasoning. Have brought several back to life. There are also some good YouTube videos on how to do it.
