Gonna be working on a small restoration project this weekend and the expanded grates I got look like they were rarely cleaned in the 18 years this guy had the cooker. What's the best way to get me as close to factory condition as possible since I have no clue how or what this guy has been cookin? Maybe multicolored cats for a TD?
You can use a wire brush or chuck a wire brush in your drill to clean em.
Spray it with 'Simply Green'
first, then brush it.
If its really old, it may be easier to go to your local welder and give him the dimensions and get a new one.
I bought an old Offset last year. The grate was in poor condition, so I replaced, rather than attempting to clean it.
(Wasn't sure what had been on it before)
