Use my Akorn junior for low and slow more than anything. As a result the remains of the last cook is still on the grates a sticky mess. I can’t take to grilling temps next cook to bake it off cause I’d be waiting forever for the temps to drop. I can’t use hot water and soap least I destroy oil seasoning.
To date I’ve been putting the grates on the family on high for ten mins so the mess turns to carbon and brushing it off. A quick re oil and it’s clean and usable.
Any other ways of cleaning it for use. I’ve seen more than a few rusting Akorn grates on utube
