Mine were already looking a little dry, so i rubbed some tung oil on them. What do other folks do?

    I go generic on my handles. I believe this was part of the incriminating evidence that led to the outing of chrisnjenn/evansegger. "winna, winna, chicken dinna"

    I naturally re-season my handle during every cook with whatever oil was used, followed by a BBQ sauce, usually Trilby's, or whatever is still stuck on my fingers. I think that's the same as letting them rot in the outside air...

    @MCN & Cen-Tex: ok out with it. Sounds like there's a good story there.

    @Springram: Lovin' it! Just cooked breakfast on it (thread will be up shortly).

    @Skiddymarker: Yours sound like they have the patina I want :)

    I don't. In fact, my wife is afraid to touch them.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    dude- tell me you did not miss this??????? One of the best threads EVER. It is the middle of the sauce/rub giveaway thread when Eggcelsior totally busted resident Dbag chrissnjenn using another handle (evansegger) stirring up trouble as chrissnjenn playing nice on the same thread as evansegger. Then Eggselsior found another thread where he was talking to himself (the 2 handles) about how good his food was (chrisnjenn told evans egger "winna, winna, chicken dinna" on one of his cooks even though the are the same dude). I almost peed myself. eggselsior called him out and he mysteriously disappeared. go dig through that thread and prepare to die laughing. It was greatness.

    I don't know if there is a "distance myself" emoticon on here, but I would insert it here if there was.

    @Cen-Tex: I totally missed that. I wasn't following the thread. But, wow! Amazing how the internet is such an outlet for devious creepy minds.

    Note to self - don't ever p!ss off @Eggcelsior... or else he might find out what I use my credit card for on the interwebs.
