It usually takes 5-6 thin coats this way to season a Griswold cast iron piece, but it does a great job. James pointed me in the right direction a little over a couple of years ago, here: http://boards.fool.com/linseed-oil-to-season-castiron-292035.........

I'll have to try that next time. Spent the weekend re-seasoning a few cast iron fry pans with bacon fat. Five hours total bake time @325 F. They are black and shiny.

It works pretty well, ez3, though it takes quite a lot of time. This was a rust bucket Griswold skillet that I cleaned up and used the seasoning method referenced by James' link. It turned out pretty well. Here's a photo of it: http://s229.beta.photobucket.com/user/NoIDAtAll/media/IMAG00...
