How do I season WOK?

jgoreMarch 17, 2009

I received an old carbon-steel wok (joyce chen) the other day that I don't think has been seasoned properly. I'm familiar with seasoning cast-iron as I cook with it frequently, but I'm wondering if the seasoning process for woks and carbon-steel impaticular is any different? Should I season and put in the oven or just season on the stovetop with oil?

Thanks..............
