pre-seasoned lodge cast iron skillet

hi chowhounders,

okay - finally bit the bullet and bought a pre-seasoned lodge cast iron skillet.

my head is spinning now having read a bunch of threads about seasoning cast iron skillets.

i have some specific questions:

1. the instructions say the skillet is ready for use. can anyone with the same product please comment on whether they seasoned their already-seasoned pan?

2. and if so, how do i season a pre-seasoned skillet? oil? lard? crisco? oven? bbq? etc.?????? a big bacon fry-up this weekend??

i can't seem to find anything definitive regarding these pre-seasoned skillets. also, i KNOW there's a lot of love out there for the griswolds et. al. but i've got a lodge and want to know what to do with it.

thank you!!!
