Cast iron baking, or seasoning. How does that work?

If you buy a cast iron product you will in most cases have to bake it the first time, also called seasoning. You then apply a protective layer to the cast iron so that it does not rust. Cast iron is a very porous material and has the property of attracting rust quickly. Is not a pleasant sight and you spend a lot of time removing the rust.

What do you need?

  • A kamado at 150 degrees, or if it fits in the oven an oven at 150 degrees.
  • Linseed oil, for sale at the supermarket. Sunflower, or peanut oil, or Crisco also work fine but does not stick as long.
  • A silicone brush or a cloth

Baking in cast iron! How does that work?

  1. Bring your kamado bbq or oven to a temperature of 150 degrees. Or use the oven if you find it more convenient, and if it fits.
  2. Clean the cast iron with soapy water and rinse well so that no soap residues are left behind.
  3. Let your cast iron heat up for half an hour, so that the pores of the material are open
  4. Apply a roial layer of linseed oil with a brush or cloth and leave to fry for about 20/30 minutes.
  5. Remove the cast iron product from the kamado and leave to cool for 15 minutes.
  6. Repeat steps 3 and 4, two to three times. And increase the temperature of your kamado by 10 degrees each time.


Baking top vent/ daisy wheel

Fanning daisy wheel; Cast iron daisy wheels always fume a little during the first few uses. After a number of uses, the daisy wheel closes off better with a layer of grease. You can also speed up this process a little by dripping linseed oil into the holes of the daisy wheel (daisy wheel closed) then turning it open and closed a few times.

Repeat each time you use the kamado until you are satisfied with the seal.

Please note that the margoyle has a very good coating, you do not need to clean it with soapy water before baking.

Rusted daisy wheel; over time you will find that your daisy wheel will weather a bit, and the original coating will disappear. Full gan step in 1 through 6 of the above manual.
