Help! Why is it smoking so much!

hweber0 | Apr 11, 2007 05:48 PM

Hi! Just found this site, because I cannot find this info anywhere! I just bought a cast iron grill for the stove top (u kno the kind, it covers both burners) anyways one side is flat, the other is grooved. Well I made bacon and eggs the first time on the flat side, then hamburgers and corn the second time on the grooved side. Well what a MESS! The eggs were fine, and the bacon (It was irish bacon) smoked so much, more smoke in my small apt. I have ever seen. Also, with the hamburgers, the corn was fine. Both the meats were delicious, but I cannot use the grill again, because the smoke was unbearable...anyway

It was a pretty simple set...came with one care instruction...

Grease it with veg. oil, and bake in over for an hour or something like that.

I thought it was weird yet did it anyway. Well I loooove this grill , but what should I do!?! Is it the quality of the grill or do I need to do something...The smoke is sooooooo bad!

Help !!!!

Thanks :)
