Break out the power tools!

I once reconditioned a couple cast-iron frying pans that one of my camping buds bought at a yard sale. Whoever owned them was told not to wash them and took it seriously. There was years -- probably decades -- of crap baked on them, but I got it off. I used my Dremel tool and my drill press and various bits and grinding wheels and implements of destruction. Got down to the bare metal and re-seasoned both pans. I use one of them every time we camp.

Just don't move from hot to cold (or vice-versa) rapidly or it will crack, and try to avoid banging on it with anything. A chisel is OK but no hammer.

My final tip -- develop a following among young campers that you can then draft for clean-up duties! I never met a teenager that wouldn't "work for food."

Good luck and happy cobblering,
