    Here's a screenshot from a YouTube video (linked below) that clearly shows the same issue I had.

    IMG_20200627_065406.jpg

    https://youtu.be/O6bFWVB2BRY

    In the video he explained exactly what I suspected that the pan is too smooth.

    Luckily, I looked this up before putting too much effort into stripping down this pan again!

    Turns out it's a common thing and the simple solution is to build up the layers. Apparently 2-4 layers of seasoning is a good thing so that's what's happening right now.

    I should have done my research before relying on just one source.

    Hell I have sand blasted them. You didn’t hurt that pan with a drill and wire brush.

    I know right? You gotta get the rust off or what's the point ya know?

    Seriously, you can see in the picture below that some idiot at some point in time seasoned OVER the rust...

    IMG_20200626_133445610.jpg

    I know my cast iron restoration skills are only 3 days old but damn... There's just some people who shouldn't! Haha!

    Luckily it's rust free now and it's going to get at least one more coat of seasoning after this one and it'll be 100% better.

    Where did I hear that before.... Oh wait I know-

    Absolutely! Have had my hands inside a sandblaster cabinet more times than I care to recall over the years doing rusted steam plant valves, pretty sure I have had nightmares about it. But when ever I end up with a rusted CI pan my first thought is damn wish I had a sandblaster cabinet available to me right now.

    But I don't however a 3M rust and paint stripping wheel on a drill does fast work of it without leaving too fine of a finish behind.

    Seasoning a pan I treat the same as greasing a pair of boots. Several thin light coats are much better than heavy coats. Time.

    And for initial seasoning on raw CI pores and occasional followup seasoning

    it is ranked so high for a reason. It works. Thin multiple coats at first then on followup seasoning one thin coat.

    Of course bacon grease after that. Used to keep my bacon grease in a mason jar. For decades. Few years ago went to an oil strainer with a fine mesh strainer and keep it in the fridge, filtering out the bacon grease helps a lot. But I not only use bacon grease in my CI pans for pretty much everything I cook I also use it for flavoring and cooking other things.

    Because bacon.

    Same shit different month. All is well. Kid is no longer allergic to milk, so that’s a huge positive for the year.

    Was too drunk and hungry to remember to take pictures of the finished products but I made a roast chicken over the camp fire one night, and a venison stew the next night. Both times I got a good bed of Fir coals going, then threw on a couple large rounds of maple and walked away for 4 hours.

    The chicken was so tender you couldn’t even carve it, it just shattered into juicy chunks of meat. Same with the stew, super tender and a really nice rich gravy.
