I buy alot of cast at garage sales and got some pieces that were really gross. I went to a hardware store and purchase a wire wheel that will fit into a drill and took it outside and wire wheel it all, works like a charm. Gave them a good soapy scrubbing, then reseason outside on my grill so it won't smell the house up. . Please remember to put saftey goggles/glasses on as the grim flys and occasionally a pc of wire will come off. I wish I had before pics to show you, never thought of taking pics. I got a 12" fry pan and a 5qt dutch oven for $2.00 they were so nasty people looked at me strange that i was purchasing them. Little did they know what a bargin I had.

I wish I'd taken a before picture of how built up this pan way. Anyway, it is now in the oven for its first round of seasoning. Yay! I can't wait to use it. I will post a pic once it is seasoned. It looks great!

All done and seasoned-at least for now. Of course I will need to build up the seasoning but it looks awesome. So happy with it!

If you can see this it's the eBay auction I won this from.

Vintage 10 1 2" Cast Iron Chicken Fryer 8 on The Handle | eBay

Not sure if that'll show up. It shows great before pictures.

The easiest way to strip cast iron is to put it into a self-cleaning oven and set the oven on CLEAN.

I would have loved that but I don't have one nor does anyone I asked. I am going to ask further though. I have another pan that needs to be stripped.

Do you have a gas grill?
