So Steve I am buying a new grill and the grills I currently have are all "Cast" grates which I know you clean and oil when done.
My new grill is Stainless grates and I have heard that you "Do not Oil grates, you oil the food" But what about when done for the night?
I have Kept my 1991 cast grill (with Stainless warming tray) working for 23 years, but is older design.
Should I clean after each cook and oil?
Clean and don't oil?
Clean before each cook and don't worry about after cook? (I don't think I could do this)
What would you recommend for the New Weber Stainless gas grill to make sure it last 23 years + ?
I see the new grills have a drainage system not just a drip tray.
Is it ok to cover with foil to make regular cleaning easier, or is that making a spot that could shorten the tray life?
I normally clean grills twice a year, more if needed but always Spring and fall I do a total clean of inside and outside. I also wipe down and clean as needed each cook just not a tear apart clean.
