My best friend just purchased a new stainless steel barbecue and I told him that it's important to protect it from the elements (especially the bottom section because it's made of very thin stainless steel).

What would you guys recommend? I did a brief search and came across this article that recommended 3M Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish (at the bottom of the page), and another website that linked to this YouTube video for a product called ProtectaClear.

The ProtectaClear looks like a solid performer but I doubt it's available locally.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I've left mine out all winter for years without a problem. Just a run of the mill BBQ cover will do.

Mine is 5 years old and just a cover with a yearly thorough spring cleaning/wipedown followed by the occasional monthly cleaning it still looks as good as new. IMO, just keeping it from direct exposure to the elements as much as possible will make it last till you want to buy a new one.

Thanks, guys. I guess a cover, and keeping it stored in the shed or garage, it is.

Cheers.

Are you having an identity crisis? Is that you again?

I take it the grill is not a built in. Just leave it outside, let it fill up with dried leaves and spider webs. Use Naval Jelly every 3 years to clean up the rust and bird droppings. Make sure your propane tank is off-white with a decorative rust patina.

Or, you can get a nice Weber and use charcoal, as man was meant to grill.

Not that grilling is the same as BBQ, still a nice Weber is the way to go for grilling.

You're right, Rick. I just figured Cam said BBQ but meant grill.

Let's ask him,

HELLO, CAM ... did you mean BBQ or grill, and if you're not sure of the difference, tell us why you referred to your friend's grill as a BBQ, OK??

A barbecue and grill are interchangeable terms when referring to the cooking appliance, as I was. But, as Rick correctly stated, it's the cooking technique that differs.

Used literally, the term "grilling" refers to cooking food over a direct flame or other high-heat source. BBQ, on the other hand, has three distinct differences. One main difference between grilling and BBQ is the heat source. BBQ uses indirect heat or low-level heat to cook foods - usually meats.

If you're cooking with low, indirect heat on a Weber "grill", you're barbequing.

We do both, so it's a fucking barbecue.

Cam, have you forgotten this is supposed to be a "family-friendly" board?


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Yes, I'm sure it is one of those special and profane barbecues. I am not surprised that when caught not knowing the difference between a grill and a bbq, (no big deal, really) first you contend there's no difference and then you resort to profanity.

You really lower the level of discourse here, Cam.
