Default PIT Care

I plan on keeping my Pit covered as much as possible but I am curious as to what everyone does to treat their PITs and protect them from the elements and from rust?

I have a few coats of clear on the UDS other than that nothing. I'll repaint it a different color when it gets to bad.

the mini has a grill cover for the 18in weber grill over it. my otg has the 22in grill cover over it. Both are under the covered part of my deck. I cook on them enough where I dont have to worry about keeping them oiled up.

I'm getting an 84" cooker ... inside I understand how to treat, season, and clean. Hinges I'm OK with. Will be getting a Powder Coat done. What I'm more focuses on is making sure I do all I can to keep it in best shape. Hefty investment and my wife knows how to shoot!

Frequent use is good for it That, and a coating of PAM on the exterior paint.

Cooking oil on firebox, once a month or after cooking, whichever comes first.

Most of mine are on a covered porch. No water, no problems.

It seasons, almost like a cast iron skillet. Paint will never hold up because of the steel expanding and contracting during use. Also lives in the garage :)

I just discovered the el cheapo Lowe's round grill cover that fits up to a 30" kettle or UDS. It's pretty cheap vinyl but has an elastic bottom and costs eight bucks. I have one on the kettle part of my 22.5 one touch platinum (allowing me to use the side tables) and one on the 25.75 Weber. Will probably get a third for the UDS once I'm done fabricating.
