Hi all,

A friend of mine recently purchased a 22 in MACA dutch oven and is in need of ideas on how to season the monster. Anyone out there have any tips or methods on how to season the big oven.

Thanks

It's probably big enough to do that!

I have a big 80 lb Maca. And yeah, they don't come preseasoned. I cook 22 lb turkeys in it. I seasoned it on my propane grill. My grill is pretty big and the cover just barely closed over the DO.

I just coated the Maca with Crisco and turned it upside down on the grill after I cleaned the grill really well. I preheated the grill to it's highest temperature and left the DO in the grill for an hour. I shut the grill off and let everything cool and then repeated the process.

I use this same process for all my cast iron.

Well, you season it in a bigger one of course! Clever

But seriously,
the last four times we've done the 22 inch MACA we did it in the coals with the deep pit BBQ. If you can find a club that does have a pit (like the rodeo folks, Rotary Club or VFW) find out when they will be doing their underground cooking and see if you can place it in their pit then.

This might be impractical, but I know a fellow who helped season a big Maca in a heat treat oven at an aerospace shop. Unfortunately, these shops are not on every corner.

You could probably build a "temporary" oven using cinder blocks and a lot of charcoal.
