New cast iron seasoning?
I am getting ready to season my Christmas cast iron pot and have a question or 2. I have never had a pre seasoned pot before but though I would go a head and re season it so I have washed it with miled soap, dried and have my oven set for 450, I will put a light coat of veg oil on it. My question should I not re season it and if I do is 450 or for an hour and then let to cool in the oven after the heat is off? Hoping to do some biscuits later tonight.

350 is plenty hot enough and for hr or so. Let it cool in the oven untouched untl cooled down to touch.I do mine a couple of times or so.

I know there are different ways to season cast iron.

I coat lightly with vegetable oil or crisco, put into a 350 oven until the oil begins to smoke (usually about 10 to 15 minutes). I then turn off the oven and let it sit in the remaining heat until cool to the touch.

If nice and shiny you are all set and ready to go. I also season the outside as well as the inside and the handle as well.

Modified my original plan by placing in 450 oven for about 30 minutes, the pot was already hot because I dried it on the top burners first, then turned heat of and left it in until cooled. I figured since it was pre seasoned that should do it. Today I will toss in a couple slices of buck board bacon with a couple slices of regular bacon just to give it a little extra seasoning with flavor.
