Any tips for seasoning them? Do you just use oil?

Oil them and wipe them down when you first buy them and at the end of every season leaving a light coating on the teflon.

I'm sure people do it different ways. We hold ours above the coals. Since pie irons are heavy, this takes a bit of doing. But you can also buy a thingy that you can balance your pie iron on, or just use a rock or something else. You also need to periodically turn the pie iron so both sides get done.

And periodically open it up to see how your meal is cooking. Placing the pie iron directly in the fire often results in very burned bread which tastes really bad. You just want a nice browned color to your bread.

Also, if it hasn't been said already, I'd caution against buying any aluminum pie irons. They are pretty worthless, they don't cook the food well, and they quickly warp to the point that they don't seal up well and then constantly burn the food.

Here's a photo of a holder - it can hold a refreshing beverage too, although I don't particularly like hot beer!

One thing we learned early on - the cast iron ones (heavy) work far better that the "less expensive" aluminum ones.

This is so true. I've had mine for decades.

Oh...and get the fire hot for quite a while and then use coals and put the iron on a log just above the hot coals.
