How to Season Your Grill!

grillAre you ready for a full summer of grilling?  We love to grill all year round  — especially hamburgers and hot dogs.  One thing we tried this year is seasoning our grill burners.  It doesn’t offer anything in terms of flavor but it does keep your grill in better shape throughout the long grilling season.   It will also extend the life of the grill saving you money in the long run.

Here’s what you need:
– Burners from inside your grill
– Cookie Sheet and cooling racks
– Canola Oil
– Kitchen brush to spread on the oil

grill1aGrab a cookie sheet and a few cooling racks.  Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.  If you don’t know where your burners are in the grill, check your manual.  These are really easy to take in and out as long as you know your grill.
