I bought a 5qt Big Green Egg cast iron Dutch oven about a month ago and followed the seasoning instructions using peanut oil. I was trying to use it up since I bought it only to season my Yoder. For the first time, today I made baked beans in it and after I removed the beans and let it cool I went to clean it and the lid was really sticky, both inside and outside. When I went to do the bottom, the inside was fine but the outside was also sticky, although not as bad as the lid.
I had the Dutch oven in my YS640 for about 1.5 hours at 350*. Did I use the wrong oil for seasoning, or did I season incorrectly?
I ended up washing with a sponge and used Dawn dish soap to get the stickiness removed and have it in the over at 170* to make sure it's dry. I don't have the time to re-season it tonight so I was thinking of just putting on the light coat of canola oil for now.
Would this be okay or should I just leave it until I can season it next weekend?
Thanks for any help.
