Avoid the formation of rust
1. Buy cast iron grates and parts made of stainless steel or with a ceramic coating. Many cast iron products from Char-Broil® are coated with ceramic to avoid rust forming.
2. It is essential to clean and oil your grill grate.
3. Ensure you have the correct size of protective weather cover and that it fits well. The closer you live to water or other extreme weather conditions, the more likely it is that rust will form.
4. Do not delay once you notice the first signs of rust formation. Carry out the abovementioned actions before it spreads.
