Seasoning your new M Grill.
M Grills have a natural steel finish interior so we highly recommend you season your new grill before use. We recommend coating the entire inside of your new grill with a light cooking oil. A cooking spray like PAM works fine. Next, start a fire with charcoal in your grill and firebox. Let the grill get up to around 350-450 degrees. Once your coals are hot, close the lid and let the heat and smoke season your grill like a cast iron skillet. You might see some moisture drip from the lid. This is normal. The raw steel will sweat off any moisture inside the new grill. Leave your vents all the way open and let your coals burn out. Now your new grill is seasoned and ready for use. You will notice the entire inside of your grill will be coated black. Do not wash this off and never spray a water hose to the inside of your grill. Now your grill is ready to cook.
M Grills Exterior.
Every M Grill is sandblasted before they are painted. The sandblasted metal is then painted with an industrial high temperature coating rated up to 1200 degrees (F). The painted grill is then cured in a large oven for proper paint setting. Over time, it is possible for the paint to fade if the grill is left out directly in the elements for long periods of time. Extended periods of heat can also cause discoloration or even paint to fade in certain spots as well. We do not warranty the paint on your grill so we encourage customers to purchase our grill cover to keep your grill looking great for many years. You can purchase high temperature paint if ever needed for touch ups.
M Grill Cover.
If your grill is going to be exposed to the elements, we highly recommend purchasing an M Grill cover to keep your investment protected. We make these covers in house by hand using high grade waterproof canvas material. You will find these grill covers to fit your M Grill under the Accessories tab.
