Request From A Dear Friend

Postby jbullard1 » Thu Oct 11, 2018 9:35 am

One of my dear friends has asked me and my bride to travel into the "Show Me State" this weekend for a Memorial service for her late father. He was an avid outdoors man and cast iron lover. It seems his collection of iron has disappeared and she ask me to bring some of mine and help with the cooking. We are carrying these pieces and the menu will be Venison Chili, Beef Stew, Rabbit Pie, Spaghetti with venison sauce, Venison Breakfast Burritos, assorted side dishes,dips and cheese balls in the smaller skillets. I will post pics once we get the meal prepared. This is some of the more modern iron I have restored.

Very simple to do Greg.

Be careful on the trip, and I love cooking out of iron skillets and dutch ovens.

I just recently brought home a big dutch oven that my late father used on Boy Scout camping trips. It was in a storage building exposed to roaches and mice, and I know you're not supposed to use soap on them, but this thing needs serious cleaning. What should I do? Use it for a decoration?
I want to see the other pics of all the food! I bet that was some kind of good!

Flipper, strip it and season it. Don't know how big it is. If it won't fit in the oven. You can season it in a gas grill, if it will fit.
Get yourself a couple of cans of easy off oven cleaner, not the off brands, the yellow can that contains lye. Wear rubber gloves and spray that pot down real good. Place in a heavy black plastic bag and tie it. Leave it in the bag for a week. Then remove it and scrub it down good with brillo pads. Use a plastic tub large enough to hold it. Fill the tub with a 50 /50 mix of vinegar and water and submerge the pot. Leave it in a few days stirring daily. It will come out looking like new iron. Then season it using crisco shortening. I use the crisbee, from Amazon. I season three times raising the temperature each time.

Oh yea! Thanks! I will do that. It is a big one, but I think it will fit in the oven fine.

Follow Terry's directions, I have a lye tank I soak in but for a few pieces his way is good. Spray liberally and wrap in a black garbage bag put in a sunny spot. If it has rust on it you may have to soak it in a 50/50 mix of vinegar and water for the rust. Terry uses crisco for seasoning I use canola oil. I bake at 550° until the iron stops smoking or own a hot grill. You do not want an oily sticky surface.

I ordered the Crisbee stick yesterday and picked up the Easy Off with lye and steel wool. Brillo has soap in it, so I figured I better hunt down plain steel wool. Looking forward to getting this done. Don’t know when the sun is going to shine again, so putting the bagged pot in a sunny location may be a challenge.

The soap won't hurt it. The vinegar bath will remove all residue. If the sun is not an option, let it work indoors. Just be sure to protect the area where the bag is sitting. Also you will need to season it as soon as it comes out of the vinegar. As surface rust will form very rapidly. When you take it out of the vinegar wash it well, and place in the oven to dry. Then start to season it. You will be very pleased with the results.
