Seasoning the Gravity XT

Seasoning your new grill is a vital step to ensure optimal performance and longevity. This process removes any contaminants, chemicals, and oils left over from the manufacturing process, ensuring a clean cooking surface. It's crucial to season your grill before its first use to create a protective layer that helps prevent rusting. Regularly seasoning your grill not only maintains this protective barrier but also enhances the grill's durability. If rust does appear, simply clean the affected areas with a steel brush, apply a layer of cooking spray oil, and fire up the grill to restore its protective coating.
