Season an older charcoal grill?

Discussion in 'Charcoal Smokers' started by battalion1, Dec 31, 2013.

  1. I have a Webber 22" that is a couple years old. I've used it for grilling only. I recently purchased a Smokenator and plan on using it soon. Is it necessary to clean my grill and season it for smoking? Or is it OK just from grilling? Sorry if this is a dumb question, obviously I've got allot to learn, but finding this is the place to learn it. Thanks for the help!!

    Just make sure it's clean, Weber grills do not require seasoning.

    I NEVER clean a Weber grilling surface!

    I heat it up.  I scrape it down with a heavy duty painter's wire brush.  I heat it some more to sterilize.

    Then I cook and enjoy!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Clean it then use it.  My well used 22 Weber Kettle had been sitting on the side of the house for years until I received a Smokenator as a gift.  I cleaned the grill then fired it up.  Great little accessory for the W.K.  If you have any questions there are lots of answers here.  Have fun!
