Nothing but nothing lubes a chain better than boiling in grease.
Done it all my life and get excellent service from all my chains & sprockets.
Trick is to run 2 or more ( I run 4 ) chains at a time.
Drag the lubed chain through and pop the clip back on takes  few minutes.
Drop the old chain into some solvent to clean properly then at a latter date boil it up and pop it back in the tin after it has hardened and it will be ready for the next time.
Generally do the chains 2 at a time.

My mom was not best pleased when I spilled it over her cooker. Link-life was not the easiest to clean up.    *pull hair out*

I think I will do it in the garden on a GAZ camping cooker in an old meat tin, then if it spills it will only go into the meat tin, I hope  *whistle*

And you survived to tell the story, she really must have loved you.
I had to do it on the kero stove and even then it had to be on the other side of the shed away from the house & only then when I was downwind.

It's just me and the dog, so no worries.  *wink2*
