BBQ grill grate sticking issue

mikie | Jun 9, 2011 01:45 PM

Maybe everyone has this issue, but it seems that no matter what type of grate I have, SS, CI, or ECI the food seems to stick. I've read that the food will tell you when it's ready to be turned and release, but that doesn't always seem to work either, nor is it always when I want to turn the food. My new grill has SS grates that are about 3/8" diameter, so they are really heavy duity. They leave good sear marks, but there always seems to be some sticking. I've tried a little veg. oil before I start it up but it seems to burn off during preheating. It's too hot right before I put the food on to oil it, or at least I haven't figured out a good mtheod yet. Anyone have a method they use that works? Thanks,
