Why do you have to put the skillet upside down?

my skillets have a hard gnarly crust on the outside. How do I rid them of that?

I agree You definitely missed the heating part. I used lard to season it placed it in the oven upside down and placed the oven in cleaning mode. This put a hard glaze that has lasted several years.

That's ridiculous. To season it properly you must alternate oiling and heating in oven several times. In the old days the iron skillet never got a break, it basically stayed in use 24-7 so it was seasoned in the process.

You left out the step of placing it upside down in the oven for an hour at 300F.

Just remembering what I always seen my Grandmother do when seasoning her skillets.
