Andy, Pacanis and JMediger are all correct, Joesfolk. I don't think you need to throw it out just yet.

Burning the griddle in the gas grill on full blast will remove everything. All you have to do is brush off the ash. Then season it in the oven as described with crisco.

Introducing lemon to naked cast iron will cause it to rust.

I've never had this happen, not that it wouldn't, I've just never had it happen. I also don't use the grill, I use my oven so maybe I'm not getting everything off. I also think the lemon and salt get rid of some of the char flavor (that could all be in my mind though ). After scrubbing I do wash it and dry in a warm oven before I coat it with crisco.

I skip the Crisco in favor of bacon squeezin's. Rub bacon juice all over the pan, place it upside down on your oven rack with a cookie sheet underneath to catch any drips, and bake it at 450F until it stops smoking. Then turn off the oven and let it cool in place.
