Seasoning Cast Iron with Duck?

maillard | Jan 1, 2007 08:14 PM

I received a beautiful Wagner cast iron pan for Christmas this year (hooray for eBay!). I am planning on eating lots of bacon to start the seasoning process, but I was wondering if roasting a duck in it might work as well. I'm not sure if it would be big enough for a duck (it's a 10-inch... I'll get a 12-inch next, but for now I just wanted a pan for making Zuni chicken, frittatas, etc). If it would, could I do this? I wanted to make the Saveur 5-hour roast duck. Where could I get a rack that would work for this?

Any other seasoning ideas are also very welcome (I've read all the previous posts on this topic).
