Caring for Your Cast Iron Griddle

To ensure your Yoder Smokers Cast Iron Griddle continues to shine, here are some simple care tips:

  1. Post-Cooking Ritual: After each use, give it a good scrub with a gentle brush or plastic scraper. Avoid using soap, as it can strip away the seasoning. Dry it well by heating in your YS480 or YS640 pellet grill or in your home oven.
  1. Seasoning: Keep your seasoning intact by applying a thin layer of  oil after cleaning. This protective coat prevents rust and maintains the non-stick surface.
  1. Safe Storage: Store your griddle in a dry place to prevent moisture-induced rust. If you plan to store it for an extended period, a bit of extra oil can provide added protection.
