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.
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.
