I'd clean them up a little with steel wool. Then rub them with shortening or cooking oil, turn on the oven to 400, bake them for a few hours. They'll be fine.

When they cool, put a light layer of oil on them to keep them from rusting again.

Anything that dissolves rust will work fine. If you use a harsh chemical, wash very well afterwards. But steel wool or green scrubby pads should do it.

Or, if you want a safe, natural method, soak them in a bucket with a 1:6 ratio of molasses and water. The diluted molasses activates a chelation process which removes the rust. It might take a few days, depending on how rusty they are, and you need to remove any grease or oil that will block the molasses.

Or, you can get a container of mixed Arm and Hammer Super Washing Soda and a battery charger and make up an electrolysis machine, which will remove rust much faster (but not as safely, as the soda wash is caustic, while molasses just smells). You'll also need to create electrodes and anodes for the electrolysis method and some wire of course.

No need for a grill with this recipe. In fact a fire pit is required.


new york or sirloin steak
green pepper
BBQ sauce
other seasonings if you want


get a fire going to the point you have some nice coals.

layout some tin-foil about 18" long

chop up the veggies
season the steak if you want

Place the veggies and steak on the tin-foil and cover with BBQ sauce and wrap it up.

segregate some of the coals off to a corner of the pit, place the wrapped up steak on the coals.

Wait..... enjoy.
