I’m not the smartest tool in the shed. It’s 101 dog and I should be at the beach crotch deep in the ocean surf perch fishing. Oh nooooooooo. Let’s get a pan rocket-hot repeatedly and wipe it with hot smoking oil. Man. I’m hot. I think I’m seasoned! I did 4x and I’m tapped out. I drank a pint of ice water at each cycle. Haha. I scrubbed the bejeebus out of the new pan, and seasoning really shows me how I could have scrubbed more. I’ll let the pan cool and see how I feel about it. It’s a paella pan, do I don’t think I need a skating rink slick surface. I have forgotten how a new pan stinks when you first heat it up. Gross. Thankful I’m doing this with my bbq grill. Im not heating up my home.
