This is my first post and I'm a newbie so please be gentle
My new Weber Genesis E-310 gas grill was delivered today and it has porcelain enameled cast iron grates. I have been researching online a lot about the first steps in prepping this grill. The opinions are divided whether I need to season the grates or not, and I am a complete newbie so very confused.
I have two questions:
1. What should I do before I use my grill for the first time? Since it is porcelain enameled, Weber says seasoning is not needed. However I have been reading otherwise. I read in a number of places that before first time use, I should turn on all burners on high and close the grill until it becomes very hot. And then I oil the grates lightly before putting any meat on it. Can someone please tell me what should I do?
2. What kind of brush to use? Again Weber says use Stainless steel, but other places say use brass since it is porcelain enameled.
