Default Seasoning Got Brown


I'm pretty new to restoring and seasoning old cast iron. The first two skillets I restored, a Wagner & Iron Mountain, turned a beautiful black color after the below seasoning method. I just recently found a BSR & Lodge, which using the same seasoning method turned brown. Any idea why? I included a picture of the Iron Mountain & BSR to show the difference.

*Seasoning Method*

Preheat skillet in electric oven at 200 degrees. Rub down with Crisco, then rub off. Place in oven for 15 minutes at 300 degrees then rub off any pooling Crisco. Then put back in oven at 400 degrees for 2 hours. This process was done 3 times.
