Cast Iron Griddle and seasoning.

A letter I sent to Lodge who manufactured mine. And his response.

Purchased your 10" griddle. Followed your instructions on seasoning. Still sticking. Following other instructions, such as greasing with crisco and baking for 3 hours. Did not absorb oil all over the griddle. Did it again for 1 hour. Again, did not cover completely. Oiled griddle and it now separates. Why is the bottom smooth and the inside of the griddle rough? It's nasty looking. Needed a jackhammer to get an egg off this morning. Help. How do I get it as smooth as the bottom? And how to start over cleaning it down to the bare iron and begin again?

Thank you for taking time to inquire about this. The first couple of times you cook the pan will be likely to stick as it is new. Also eggs are one of the most difficult things to make being that they stick to everything. Using extra cooking oils helps out with this. The casting is rougher because it was poured into a sand mold. The roughness is where the individual pieces of sand were present. A really smooth cook surface is often developed over years of use. As the seasoning layer builds up it will fill in any imperfections in the casting. One way to help this along is by sanding it down. When seasoning try to keep the time under 1.5 hours as anything more will start to bake the coating off.
