My next step will be taking the Dremel wire brush after it. Love my power tools. Cover it in veg oil and cook the heck out of it.

Guess there's not a whole lot you can do to wreck 25 pounds of cast iron.

You're right, Pac, I'm concentrating on the grate.

It will come out better than new. It will have history.

Yes. You can say it got rusty being carried to school each winter to cook your lunch.

Uphill. Both ways. And I don't have to bend over to pull my socks up with my right arm.

Exactly! Kids today couldn't relate. They would wear it in a backpack.

Re

I have loads of Cast Iron including Griswold, Wagner, and Lodge. I've picked it up
at various yard sales & flea markets.

If it's anything larger, you can line a box with a lawn and leaf bag to make like a bath tub. Then put one piece of your iron in and use regular cola soda to pour over it and soak it and then wire brush it to get the rust etched off. Those Dollar Tree stores sell
3 liter bottles for a buck and a few bottles of that may be enough to bring a piece of iron back to it's base metal.

Once cleaned and rinsed and dried, you can re season it in the oven with oil. I use Flax Seed oil on mine. It is an edible oil that does a good job on Iron.

Depending on how rusted you may have to allow the iron to sit in the cola soda for awhile.
