    I purchased "The Original" Outdoor Cooker (model 2750) from Target a couple years ago. I need replacement grates...mine are cast iron but a tad on the rusty side. I am going to try to clean them this weekend but I was searching online for a website for this brand and I cannot find a thing!  Anyone know a good way to get rid of the rust (its pretty bad) on the iron grates and maybe where I can find replacements if the rust doesn't remove all the way....??  I appreciate your help.

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! Would please update your profile to show where you are located?  You might meet some neighbors here! We would also like to know a bit more about you!

    I have soaked some of my cast iron that has been badly rusted with a mixture of white vinegar and water.  They will need to soak for a while...if its bad.  Elbow grease will help too with some SOS pads or some fine steel wool.  Then use some good flaxseed oil or good old plain crisco to re-season the grates.

    Welcome aboard, annemarie!  Glad you joined us.  You've found a great place to learn and share ideas.  Lots of friendly and knowledgeable folks here who really enjoy helping one another.  Just ask when you need help and you'll get plenty.

    When I need to remove rust from a grate, I just use steel wool and elbow grease.  It's not a fun job, but usually gets it done.  I'm not familiar with your particular rig, so I can't direct you to specific replacement grates.  What are the dimensions of the grates?  There are websites out there that sell replacement grates of varying size, such as the one in the link below:

    Good luck!

    Don't let the looks of that rust bother you. Use a wire brush and soapy water to scrub the grates. When clean rinse then heat until dry and then put cooking oil on them. Cast iron grates are the best my opinion.
