I just reminded myself yesterday of one of my rookie mistakes because I did it again(!)
When you're seasoning your pit, make sure it's situated over something or someplace where grease stains won't make a difference!
I fired my pit up yesterday to season it for this season . . . and forgot to have it OFF of the patio. I wound up with a few minor stains before I rolled it over into the grass - so nothing too bad - but paying attention to this will make the wifey happier!
