What is the best way to STORE this Pizza Pan after a good cleaning and pputting a few drops of oil on-it to maintain the seasoning?

In a cabinet or hang on a wall like any other pan.  I season with crisco. Itís more stable if hanging on a wall.

Hanging on the wall or a rack would work best.  The most important thing is keeping it in a humidity controlled environment.  I had some cast iron last season that I put on my garage table because I was going to smooth it out and season it myself and after a few weeks it had a small amount of rust on it.  A little work with a sander took care of it and I was already seasoning it so it wasn't a big deal.

You won't be pleasantly surprised if you leave it out and don't do a pizza cook for a month in say July though. 

Using an oil that won't smell funny after a while of non use is also important.  I tend to use flax seed (I think that's what's in the cabinet) at the beginning and switch over to olive oil.  I know seasoning with say bacon grease makes things taste great, but if you aren't using it almost daily it will start to stink in a not so good way.
