Season or not?

A buddy of mine gave this to me. It was pretty rusted and "weathered".
What do you guys think? I scrubbed the rust out but there's a few spots where it's pitted.
All I can picture is about 10lbs. of cornbread
Opinions please.

Puff, I don't think it will work. Send it to me and I will dispose of it for you.

I'd be all over that Puff. Even if you try to season it and it doesn't work out you didn't loose any thing. But I'd bet that it'll season up just fine.

Puff,

It should clean up fine. I found this site the other week while I was looking for recipes and information concerning dutch ovens.

I agree with Nick, but send it to me C.O.D. and I'll dispose of it.

Thank for the links Cleglue.
James I'll have to check with him. I'm going to do a light sanding and see what happens.
This thing is huge, 20 in. across & 3 in. deep
Thanks for the info guys!

I found a frying pan in the water (salt water) at the edge of Rudee Inlet in Va. Beach back in the 70's, which was a lot rustier than yours. I sanded it to remove as much rust as possible, reseasoned it, and gave it to my mother. Some 30 years later, when I visit my parents I still get to enjoy homemade biscuits cooked in that salvaged frying pan. Yours should be fine.

Puff, if that doesn't quite do it, use some Harley-Davidson High Performance Chain Lube Plus -- it cleans, lubricates, and protects from rust and corrosion. :P
