Cast Iron Dutch Oven

Recently I picked up a new Lodge Cast Iron Dutch Oven. I bought the 6 quart unit, with the flanged lid and integral legs for campfire cooking. The lid holds coals so that you can cook from all sides, but flip it over and it's a griddle for doing eggs or pancakes. I expect to do quite a bit of cooking with this, so I needed to know how to season it, and care for it afterwards. I found an excellent resource for the care of Cast Iron at Kitchen Emporium, and another at Lodge's website. The Dutch oven is baking right now after coating it with lard for it's first pass of seasoning.

We took this camping this week. Made pineapple upside down cake, chili, spaghetti, and other meals in it over an open fire. It was a success!
