VIDEO: How to Season Your Char-Broil® RED® or Heatwave® Infrared Grill
Just like a cast iron skillet, the cast-iron components in the Char-Broil RED Infrared cooking system will need to be seasoned prior to use. This is important as it will optimize cooking performance, make cleaning easier, and inhibit rusting.
While the grill is cold, coat all surfaces of the RED cooking system including the grilling grates and infrared emitter with a high heat cooking oil, such as Canola or Peanut oil.
When seasoning, it’s easiest to use a spray, however you must wipe down the RED cooking system with a cloth or paper towel after spraying to ensure an even coat.
Ignite your grill and let it heat up for 15 minutes – or until the oil burns off and stops smoking. Your grill is now seasoned and you are ready to cook.
A light coat of vegetable oil after each use will help keep the grates and infrared emitter seasoned and provide a layer of protection.
