Cast Iron Grid

So, my CI grid was looking pretty sad.  I brought it to work and we sandblasted it.  I know I need to re-season, but here are my questions:  1. Should I wash it with soap and water to get all the "sandblasting dust" off it?  2.  I am thinking about using bacon grease to coat it.   Thoughts?

    I would wash with soap and water first then season. Would not waste bacon grease to season

  • A quick rinse with a good stiff brush should take the blast gunk off. Season with your normal CI routine. Lately have better results using grape seed oil.
