Care and Maintenance of Interior/Exterior
- To add years to the life of your grill it is imperative to provide a protective 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 ashes or debris that holds moisture causing rust, and can shorten the life of your grill.
- Once the grill has cooled, give the interior a coating of 100% oil to help your protective coating last.
- Do not heat the grill beyond 400 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.
