CLEAN AS A WHISTLE
Cleaning your cast-iron is an easy two-step process.
- Hand wash with hot water and use a stiff brush to remove grease & food (use light soap if desired)
- Dry completely with hand towel
SEASON IS THE REASON
Seasoning your cast-iron is the most important way to maintain the integrity of the skillet, avoid rusting and ensure your pan stays perfectly non-stick.
- Wash cast-iron with a stiff brush
- Rinse and dry completely
- Apply a very thin, even coat of melted shortening or cooking oil of your choice to the skillet inside and out.
- Set Traeger temperature to 350 degrees F
- Place cookware upside down on the top rack
- Bake your cast-iron for one hour—turn the Traeger off and let the skillet cool down on the grill grates
- Store your cast-iron uncovered in a dry area
Using cast-iron when getting your Traeger on is one of the most rustic and flavorful ways to enhance your wood-fired grub. Avoid rusting by regular cleaning and seasoning after every use. Maintain your cast-iron and your cast-iron will stand the test of time. Now, get Traegering.
