That's a great idea! Kind of like seasoning a cast iron skillet, before the manufacturers started offering them pre seasoned. I think I'll do just that, though I'll do it in the oven for more even heat. Thanks!

Well I did it Richard. I must say, the grates sure aren't as pretty as they were, when they were spotless clean, but it looks like a good old well seasoned cast iron skillet now. A very dark brown, almost black. I coated it with oil and baked it in the oven, progressively increasing the temperature. The final temp was 500 for about 30 minutes, then I shut off the oven and let them cool. I scrubbed them lightly in warm water with no soap after they cooled. To get rid of the excess oil. I usually super heat the grates if I'm doing steaks, so the steaks sear immediately when they hit the grill. I hope super heating them works out. I'll put them to the test soon and report back.

Near as I can tell the Coleman grates are ceramic coated or coated in some kind of substance.

Oh, the reflector pan (the pan below the burners) that can get kind of messed up too.

I have an angle grinder.. Comes in handy for all sorts of thigns, I screw the cup brush on it (Cup shaped wire brush) and those reflector pans sparkle in short order. I don't care how well it's burned on.. That sucker cuts through the crud. Change "Wheels" to a cut off wheel and it slices shakel bolts on broken springs kind of nice too

We have the Baby 'Q' and the grate doesn't seem to have any coating. I did season the the grate before first use. After I've finished taking the food off the grill, I turn it on high until I've finished eating (usually that doesn't take too long). I scrub the dickens out of the grate with a grill brush and turn it off. After it cools, I take the grate off and use the grill brush to clean down the insides. I then wipe it down with a couple paper towels and throw away the aluminum foil I lined the grease tray with along with the paper towels...done.

That works well during the season and at the end, I'll spray the insides of the grill with that non-fuming Easy Off Over Cleaner. Hose it down, dry and it's ready to go for the next time. Bob

I use the power brush only on the reflector pans.. I use hand tools on the grates, which do appear to be ceramic

A though comes to me... Regarding Easy Off, this uses HEAT to fully activate but it's not quiet up to the kind of heat a grill can generate.

How about a Cookie sheet shileld, And some screws (4 of them) and nuts Or better yet. THE OTHER BURNER

Remove the half grill on one side, Spray the remaining half grill with Easy Off, Turn on the burner without the grill and close lid, If you have a high temp thermomemter (one that will read to at least 500 degrees) stick the probe under the lid.. Let it get up to 400+ for a bit, turn off, open lid, let cool, clean that half with soap and water.

Do the other half. Same way.

I do not know if it will work. "Invented" the method AFTER I started this reply..

I put water in the drip pan(there is a high water mark). This catches the drippings and no cleanup issues in the pan. I don't have sticking issues in mine, but I don't use any sugar based sauces.

After I grill, I leave the BBQ on high for about 15 minutes and that seems to burn off all the left over crud. I also have lined the bottom with foil so cleanup is easy.

I do this too. DW worries about left-on food and grease. My reply? "If anything can live through that heat it deserves to live." Kinda like washing a cast-iron pot/skillet, useless.
OFf-topic; I remember when I was a kid, my Dad once washed Mom's cast iron skillets, scrubbed them shiny with a Brillo pad. When he proudly showed them to Mom I though she was gonna kill him with one.

Wow, you actually clean your grills between uses; novel concept!

I use Rain-X car wash soap on ours; I buy it in gallon bottles to clean our TT and have found that it cleans up the grill remarkably well and with no heavy scrubbing required; in fact, I use a regular car wash brush. It averages about $12.00 per gallon, but will last you for a while.
