My Cast Iron Pan isn't like Grandma's: Help!

I have few cast iron pans: Lodge 10" skillet, a double griddle, and a dutch oven. All of them have a pebbled finish on the cooking surface. Conversely, the round griddle and 8" skillets I got from my Grandma are smooth as glass. All of these have great seasoning.
But I've used the 10" skillet for more than 10 years, and the bottom is still pebbled. Do I need to machine these pans to get the "glass-like" finish?
