Default Black Residue

I have a lodge three notch number 8 and after cleaning and seasoning, when I wipe it with a white paper towel I am getting a shiny black gray residue on the paper towel. The other pans that I have cleaned and seasoned using the same methods do not do this. Does anyone know what this might be?

If you've manually seasoned the pan but haven't cooked in it, I can only guess, but it sounds like the temperature was taken past the point of polymerization of the seasoning oil used to the point of it carbonizing to some degree.

Thank you. I remove the seasoning and start again. I realized after posting that I did use different oil.
