Seasoning Instructions for your Custom Grill Grate

  • Wash your new grate with soap and water and dry well.  An old rag tends to do the job.
  • Apply a liberal amount of cooking oil to all sides of your grate (PAM works well, but oil and some paper towels will also work)
  • Remove any excess drips with a paper towel, but ensure that all surfaces have been oiled
  • Pre-heat your grill to approximately 350 degrees. Heat grate for approximately 2-3 hours.  Add a light coat of oil every 20-30 mins or as needed.  This, along with regular use, will ensure that your grate will not develop rust.
  • Clean excess food and apply a light coat of oil after each use.  This will ensure that your grate will not develop rust, and you will always be ready for your next use.
  • If your grate begins to rust, clean well and remove rust with wire brush or sandpaper, and follow these steps from the beginning.
