That lasted for one use, then it looked all dry and rusty again. I have nice blue flames, but I didn't want the rust.
I am trying vegetable oil spray now. Just like seasoning a cast iron skillet, I got it hot and sprayed it with cooking oil before yesterdays batch.
It has a nice dark glaze on it now even after a 90 minute boil.
I did something similar and just poured some used cooking on it after it was hot and rotated it around to get every surface covered. I've used it about 4 times since then and it still looks pretty good
