I just buffed mine with a bead wheel and put it on a fire and poured some water in it and let it boil for a while and throw the water out and repeat. It will boil a lot of stuff out of the metal you dont think is even there. Then dry it over the fire and put your oil in and start cooking.
When you're through just wipe it out and put a good coat of vegetable oil or peanut oil and store it up-side down so it wont collect dust.
Bartender, bring me anything except brake fluid, cause I don't plan on stopping!
