So as Y'all know I've been E-tanking things like crazy. my Lovely wife came out to the shop and saw me hanging a very rusty, cruddy piece in the tank. Later she came back out as I was cleaning the part up and said "I need you to see if your thingy there will clean up this old Dutch Oven". :mad2:  We found this old cast iron oven in the crawl space under our first house over 20 years ago, and it looked bad then, lots of rust ! I didn't take a picture of the pot before I put it in the tank :wallbanging: , but I did think to take one of the lid before it went into the tank.

She has been seasoning her NEW Dutch Oven for 8 hoours now with Bacon grease in the oven, she's SO Happy ! :smilewink:

 

So I think she will be looking over all those old cast iron skillets she from now on.

That's a nice Dutch oven.We used one for years when the boys were in scouts, ours had three little peg legs and the lid had a raised rim to hold coals for all-round heat.I've even baked bread in it over a campfire. Just thinking  about it makes me want to go camping again! Thanks for the memory, Texas D.& H.

I know it's at least 25 years old, that's when we found it and it looked like it had been under the house for 100 years already.

Brian, on those large pieces do you still use a 12VDC charger ? Or something like a 24/36 size?

E tanks are a great thing to have around. It's nice when the rest of the family can benefit from our hobby. I'm thinking of getting a second one geared up this summer. Someone gave me another plastic drum so it will be cheap to get a second one going.

AMber loves cast iron and Ive never thought of using my tank to get rid of the rust. Thank you for sharing!

 

I found one at the local scrap yard, a Lodge brand, larger sized for $20. Bought it and she used a potato, salt and some bacon grease, while using the oven to bake it all off. It looks new now and she loves it. I'll deff need to remember this for future pans we find in our travels.
