That is the safest way. Just make sure you have the positive and negative nodes connected the proper direction or you can end up pitting your iron.
Ace Hardware had the laundry soda that you need, not kitchen baking soda.
You can use lye but it is not always available.
I do not recommend putting it in the coals, it will burn off the crud but you cannot control the heat and may end up warping the iron.

If you want good cheap CI, go to swap meets & yard sales, look for the crudiest pieces and offer a couple bucks. It all cleans up nicely with electrolsis.
The old stuff is baby butt smooth too

I prefer cast iron. Either camping or at home.
I have a flat round one, small soup pot, small and large frying pan, rectangular flat one (cant remeber what that one is calle), and a dutch oven. Id like a cast iron coffee pot and a waffle iron. That would be cool!

Check ebay for cast iron. There are some deals along with a lot of overpriced CI. Location is important, shipping can be brutal.
I got my of my items at swap meets. Best buys were heavily encrusted and had to be cleaned.
