I just bought some replacement grills for my BBQ that are painted cast iron. How do I season these things? How do I clean the without damaging the paint?
Painted Cast Iron Grill
I bought these sight unseen from a local dealer as I'm in a time crunch.
I assumed they were painted as there is a coating of something on the metal. I did a google search and found this picture that looks identical to mine. The listing on the website says "painted cast iron"
How can I clean this without chipping the paint? is a wire brush too much?
The previous irons (OEM) were porcelain coated.
I doubt they're painted, they might be ceramic coated. Paint would just burn off.
If they're uncoated cast iron, use bacon fat. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
Of course it's company policy never to, imply ownership in the event of a dildo... always use the indefinite article a dildo, never your dildo.
is this for a Weber gas grill?
Ours came with ceramic coated cast iron grates and I can tell you from first hand experience that a wire grill brush will ruin them. Use the type of brush that looks like a brillo (sp?) pad rather than a wire brush.
