How do you keep YOUR grill grates from rusting over and your food from sticking? Answered
I have tried a dozen different methods to prevent rust. Just cleaning it after every use with some grill cleaner then wire brushing alone before using again seems to keep the rust to a minimum at best on my original top grate which i believe is stainless, my bottom grate is the replacement flat one from Menards and that one doesn't rust yet but the black coating is quickly disappearing. My food sticks terribly to both grates no matter how much Pam I spray on them.
What do you do for your grill? What's that one thing you do different that makes your neighbor pissed when he is out buying a new grate?
At this point I'm thinking a good high speed drill w/ wire brush and then rubbing it with lard or some kinda congealed fat. OOooooooohhh. I just had an AWESOME idea, I'm gonna go rub it down with my used bacon grease then maybe a warm water rinse so there's not enough to burst into flames later.
