Cast Iron Seasoning

Cast iron works best when its well seasoned.  That means obtaining a beautiful black finish.  Cooking in it helps the most.  A few pounds of bacon and your skillet should look great.  That doesn't work as well if you need a quicker seasoning. 

Many people recommend coating the cast iron and placing it upside down over a cookie sheet in the oven. While this method does work, I was left with a smokey house. 

So instead, I tried it on the grill. 


I left the grill on high for about half an hour and allowed it to cool for several hours.  The results were prefect.
