Re-seasoning my cast iron - HELP!

ILuvGrub | Jul 27, 2014 12:34 PM

Okay, it seems pretty simply. Clearly, I'm missing something here. Over the last 5 years, I've attempted to re-season my cast iron skillets 3 times. Each time I run into the same problem: My skillets are now sticky beyond belief! The directions on the Lodge website are simple and straight forward.

I scrub the skillets clean - dry them completely - put an even coat of Crisco on them - place the pans in a 350 degree oven for one hour - turn the oven off - let them cool completely before taking them out.

~ What am I missing here?
~ What's he best way to remove the "stickiness"?
~ How do I prevent this from happening in the future?

Thanks a bunch!
