My new man grates!

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by preston897, Jun 24, 2014.

  1. I recently acquired 7 man grates from my dad for free. He didnt take great care of them and they started rusting. So i ran the clean cycle in the oven with the grates in there to get the crud off. The wife did not like this. It looked like there was a fire in our kitchen with all the smoke. I then hit them with a wire brush and vegtable oil. They are seasoning now and im cooking 2 filets on them in a bit. They arent perfect but after seasoning i think they will be great!

    Im also braving the rain to do this. Thats how excited i am!

    Nice!!

    This gets me thinking about the cast iron grates in my old gas grill that I'm about to trash.  I'm thinking I should "harvest" the grates before it goes to the dump.

    Thanks for the great idea!!
     
  3. They are great. You really should. Cast iron just cooks so well! Ive wanted these grates for so long but could never justify the price

    Yeah, it would be a real shame to throw away cast iron if it is salvageable. So much better cooking on cast iron!

    Ya know my char griller came with enamel glazed racks as soon as I cranked the
    propane side to 600 degrees they crazed and cracked. So I ordered a set of cast iron
    And after seasoning they r awesome
     
  6. I just have to get used to cooking on them. Its totally new feeling switching from stainless steel. The grill marks it makes sure are pretty to
