Any ideas on storing cast iron in the garage. I have a huge skillet that gets used every once in a while. Tired of storing in the oven and removing when the oven is needed. Really don't want a layer of dust on it. Would a large grocery bag work? Any other ideas?

Can't help. When I'm done using mine, I rub it with a little veggie oil and toss it in the oven. Only pull it out if I need the space. Otherwise I leave it in even if I'm cooking in something else.

Hang it on the wall with the inside facing the wall.

If you put it in plastic it may get damp from condensation and rust. I would put some type of desicant in with it. A handfull of uncooked rice should work.

I store mine in the basement, in its original New Braunfel's cardboard box (yes, I'm brand loyal)

Ty,
Oil it
Wrap it in "paper" grocery bags
Wrap a towel around that
Then Foil around all.

Ty, FatDad has got it going. Give that big skillet a good coating of oil, wrap it in paper bags, or even newsprint--something that will breath, then store it in the basement, or where-ever.

I've found the best thing to season or keep skillet coated with is good ol' lard. not the kind u buy at store, but the kind you get at a meat locker. then store it in a brown grocery bag.

i spray mine with WD40 and keep it in the shed.


:mrgreen:



or.. for years i have kept the oversized one rubbed heavily with crisco and in an old cotton pillow case face down on a shelf in the shed. Even the pillow case is oiled now. i never had any rust form on it.

I have a large skillet that I store in the basement or in the garage. After I use it I heavy coat it with oil and wrap it in an oily towel. I then put it in a trash bag. It has been stored like this for a few years with no problems. I use food grade mineral oil purchased at Bed Bath and Beyond for wood cutting boards.

Then cooler it for about 3 weeks and it should be tender enough to eat....


oh sorry, thinking BBQ again.
