Build yourself a charcoal fire. You can control the heat easily by adding or removing coals. If you get really desperate you can use your oven in the kitchen and use a window fan to exhaust the fumes.
I have seasoned them with wood fires as well.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

:D Joker,

I use Bigdog's method and it worked everytime for me. I noticed the dutch oven I bought at Harbor Freight took longer to season and I don't think cooked as well as my others. Didn't get it there did you? It now sits on the top of my wood stove. Use is it as a humidifier!
Always try the easiest thing first.
