So I have a cauldron that looks like this...

It's starting to show some rust and I'm thinking it may be time to do something about it. Do you think the process you talked about for the skillets would be good for this?

Sure, but how big is your caldron?

It's about 7-8" circumference. I was thinking about cleaning it up to get the rust off. I don't want to treat the inside to much as I burn charcoal/insense etc. in it, but I figure I can clean up the outside.

If the oil doesn't work as well as you like, you might try cleaning it with the oven cleaner, etching the outside surface with a bit of an acid and spraying with an automotive exhaust header paint - tends to withstand temperatures a lot higher than burning charcoal or incense in an open pot: http://www.techlinecoatings.com/Exhaust.htm#blacksatin

- depends on what you want.

When you burn charcoal in the pot, the oil will begin to season on the outside of the pot, whether you want it to or not, and I think it will become tacky to the touch and emit an odor for a while, probably quite a while. Personally, if I were to use oil, I think I'd prefer seasoning it with very light coats of something like Linseed oil wiped off as dry as possible with paper towels and heated at 500 degrees for an hour or so in an outdoor gas grill.

FWIW,

Bob

I was thinking linseed as well. Thanks for the advice. I'll prolly be using it quite a bit in the next month.
