BBQ Grilling Surface Maintenance
Thank You for purchasing our grill.
Protecting your GrillNow that you have your Wood Fired Grill it is important to protect it the best you can to help maximize the life of your grill. Here are some helpful tips you can do to protect your grill from rust.
- Always, always, always keep your grill grates greasy when not in use. Greasing your grill with cooking oil or any type of non-toxic grease creates a layer of protection on your steel and prevents it from rusting. Especially in coastal regions*
- Reduce exposure to the elements with a waterproof cover. Getting a cover for your grill is a great way to ensure better health of your grill.
- The Grilling Surface is now stainless on most of our grills.
- Never use a non stainless metal brush to clean off your stainless grates, for they could possibly damage your stainless grate exposing the steel to rust.
How to clean rusty grill grates
- Make a paste using vinegar and baking soda. Place on the rust spots for at least 30 minutes. Rinse off.
- DO NOT USE ANY TOXIC RUST REMOVERS ON YOUR GRILLING SURFACE. NEVER PAINT YOUR GRILLING SURFACE.
- If the rust is on the black steel of your grill, see below for caring for the paint on your grill
