The 1st 2 pics, I'd give them a going over with a wire brush, then some oil whilst heating it up. Can't hurt to try it instead of ditching them.

I remember seeing a YouTube clip once where a guy dipped some rusted plates into a chemical solution and the rust literally fell off them.....

Yeah the rust is in the plates not off them. Using the grill too much!

Yeap... Scrub clean and gernie ... Or just wash them like yakabot's said..


Heat with oil, then clean again... Then heat with oil and they are seasoned..

Like cast iron skillet..

No matter how rusty they are, they will come good again with a couple of rounds of seasoning

In the future, if you aren't gonna use them, and they look dry, spray more cooking oil till shiny to keep them seasoned

Molasses is a good way to clean rusty stuff 1 cup full in enough water to cover and it wont hert your cooking either I have cleaned dozens of cooking pots that way
I also have chucked them on a decent fire hosed them off and then oil and back on

Cheers. Yeah yeah hindsight 20-20 and should done the last bit don't use the thing much and it lives under a cover in all the elements. I'm worried about the drop dish more than anything. It's a bit difficult to continuously season when somethings gotta be on the table. What type of cooking spray/oill do you guys use? I'm just using olive oil reckon thats contributing?
