I would probably rub the insides down and hang it over an open fire with the lid on, should season it just fine.

A) How hot can you bet your cooker?


B) Is your cooker big enough to handle it?

C) If big enough, but not able to get it over 350* or so, can you, can you put coals on 2 sides of it?

If neither of those is an option, an open fire will work fine.

Bring it to the BBQ Central get together and we will put it on top of the bond fire.

That's what I would do.

you'll need to season both sides.

You can still do that with it upside down.
It won't over heat the bottom 1/3 while trying to get the top warm enough like having right side up would. Just coat the inside and outside with oil and put it on the cooker upside down.

it need to be hot enough so that you can't touch it.
and then leave it that way for a while.

Does it have wax on it?

When doing it in the oven, you do it at 350* for 1 hr. I would shoot for something close to that. Hold a thermometer against the pot to check the temps.
