For grills with stainless steel and cast-iron grates, season the grates before and after each use. If your grill is equipped with emitter plates, season them too. Porcelain grates do not require seasoning.
How to Season your Char-Broil Grill
To prevent rust and make your grill easier to clean, follow these simple steps to season your grill.
Hot TipFor best results, use a spray bottle filled with cooking oil to coat your grill grates.
Wipe off excess oil with a paper towel. A thin layer of oil should remain, coating the grates evenly.
Ignite the grill and heat for 16 minutes until the oil burns off or the grates begin to smoke.
The shiny finish should turn dark brown or bronze. The darker and more seasoned the grates become, the hotter and more evenly they will cook.
Once the grill has cooled, apply a light coat of oil after each use to prevent rusting.
