A good friend of mine sent me a text today saying he had
a piece of cast iron for me. Very Happy

He said he would leave it on his porch for me to pick up.

It's a nice Camp Chef Lewis & Clark commemorative dutch oven.

Another friend of mine is going to take it to work & clean it
up for me so I can season it.

Here are the before pics.








We'll see how it turns out.

Nice piece in a world of 'ordinay' cast iron !!!!

How is he going to clean it at work? Hopefully not a grinder or sandblaster etc. I know most people think you can hurt cast iron but more times then not you will if not done correctly. Let me know what his plans are for it.
If it is cleaned by grinding or sandblasting the surface can be ruined and it will not season properly and will never preform the way you want it to.

1buckie - Thanks Ken! Smile

TrailerBuilder - Thanks Troy! Smile

flyin-lowe - No grinding or sandblaster. But he did hot tank & glass bead it. Confused
I did not see your post until I got it back today. It looks really good! Hopefully I can
still season & use it.

He said he tried no to do it too much, just clean the rust off.

What do you guys think?

If you click on the pics, I linked them to them to the originals.

Well I ran it through a couple of seasoning cycles in the oven
today. It's not looking too bad. I might do it again tomorrow
before I actually cook with it.

Not looking too shabby.

Looks a hell of a lot better than it did when you got it.

Lard it good inside and out when you use it. I like to use lard because it seems to leave a film better than oil when your cooking. Dry it out ASAP when your done with it, til it gets well seasoned that is. Lard dont rancidify as fast as oil if you want to put some protection on it for storage. I dont put any on mine when I put them away, just put cardboard between the lid & pot so the air can move.

DrunkPlumber - Easy man, EASY! I'm workin' on it! Laughing

TrailerBuilder - Thanks Troy! Very Happy

Hell Fire Grill - Yeah it does. I normally have a bit of lard
around. Not this time. Shocked Mad I had to use a little canola oil to
keep it from rusting 'till I restock the lard tub. Smile

I'll give it some love soon. Very Happy

Suckaass' chicken and dumplings are looking de-friggen-licious!!!

I usually do one round of seasoning on my CI and then start using it. Usually once I clean it I heat it up to dry and spray and wipe with Pam. This helps build the seasoning and keeps it oiled until the next use. After it gets good and seasoned I just wipe them out and put them up.
