Care and Maintenance of Interior/Exterior
- To add years to the life of your grill it is imperative to provide a protective polymer coating to all steel and cast iron surfaces of the grill. (You will find those instructions in "Care and Maintenance of Cooking Grates)
- After each use allow the grill to cool, remove any pellet dust and food debris that holds moisture causing rust, and can shorten the life of your grill. (A shop vac is the easiest way to remove left over pellets and pellet dust.)
- Once the grill has cooled, give the interior a coating of 100% oil to help your Polymer Coating last.
- Do not heat the grill beyond 570 degrees as this can cause damage to the finish and warp parts of the grill.
- The exterior of the grill can be wiped down with oil, just like waxing a car it will keep the grill looking new even after years of use.
- Touch-ups to the finish may be required over time. If you see surface rust, simply sand down the affected area and apply a high heat paint to touch-up areas.
- Adding a cover is always a good idea to help protect the grill from moisture.
- Storing the grill under a covered porch is also helpful.
- Make sure to unplug the unit after each use
