I thought that as it was cast iron you could just put the whole thing in a big fire and it would burn off whatever was burnt on and then you could scrub off the ashes, which should be fairly easy to do once the are realy just char..

The second comment here seems to think you can do this as well.

You might also be able to do this in a couple of other ways:

  • Put the pot upside down over a high flame to burn off the food. they used to do this at a Chinese restaurant I worked at to clean the woks. The woks weren't cast iron though.
  • Put the pot in a self cleaning oven on the clean cycle.

Disclaimer: I haven't done this, but I think it should work. If it gets voted up, then you should be ok, if it gets voted down, [peer pressure] for me.

You'll need to re-season afterwards.
