Any tips on heating and using salt/oil to prep (similar to prepping a Mojoe)? Also cleaning up and storing after use?
Although the TemboTusk Skottle comes pe-seasoned and is ready to cook right away. Should you need to prep or re- season, the operation is very similar to prepping a Dutch oven, cast iron pan or a Mojoe Griddle. Like a Dutch oven, the more the Skottle is used the more non-stick the the pan will be.
To clean or prep the Skottle; lightly wipe the pan with cooking oil and scrub the cooking surface using rock salt. If the Skottle has burned on crud; bring plain water to a boil in the Skottle and let it sit for thirty or forty minutes. Scrape the crud with a wooden spatula or spoon and discard the water. Repeat the oil and rock salt procedure.
To re-season like new; scrub the pan with a steel wool pad to remove any debris, rinse with water and dry. With a paper towel or rag, lightly wipe both sides of the pan with cooking oil. ( Do not over oil as it will cause a sticky mess.) Use a paper towel to soak up any extra oil. Place the Skottle in an oven or BBQ grill and heat to 450-500 degrees for 25 minutes or until the oil stops smoking. Re-season as often as you like.
When you are ready to store the Skottle, wipe both sides lightly with cooking oil and use a paper towel to soak up any excess oil. If the Skottle develops a little bit of rust: Use the oil and rock salt procedure to refresh. :chef:
