Some Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Do Flavorizer Bars Last?
Flavorizer Bars won’t last you as long as your grill since they’re exposed to maximum heat and stress. The average Flavorizer Bar lasts up to three years, but its life can be extended through proper cleaning and maintenance.
Why Do Flavorizer Bars Deteriorate at Different Rates?
Flavorizer Bars corrode and flake away at different rates because some are near to gas burners in use while others are further away. Also, some of the Flavorizer Bars are more exposed to more of the drippings than others.
How Can I Extend the Life of My Flavorizer Bars?
To prevent wear in your Flavorizer Bars, avoid unnecessarily high temperatures, and shuffle their position when you cook. This is because if their position is the same, some bars are subjected to more heat and drippings than others, causing them to deteriorate faster.
To prevent Flavorizer bars from rusting, wash them after every use with a mild detergent. Then wipe them dry immediately after washing, and apply a moisture-resistant coating before storing them in a dry environment. Read more about the causes and remedies for BBQ grill rust.
However, remember that despite your efforts, rust and wear are an inevitability, and your Flavorizer Bars can’t last you indefinitely.
Why Do Grills Flare-Up Even With Flavorizer Bars?
If you are using Flavorizer Bars and your grill is still flaring up, it’s high time to clean your grill. Grime on your grill from previous cooks can flare up at high temperatures. Merely leaving the fire on for a few more minutes after grilling won’t do the trick. You have to wash your grill the right way.
Can Flavorizer Bar Rust Harm My Health?
No, rust on Flavorizer Bars doesn’t directly contact your food and, therefore, cannot harm your health. Even though rust is not a food-safe material, experts agree that consuming it in small quantities is not harmful. Learn more about consuming rust on a grill.
How Often Should I Clean My Flavorizer Bars?
Ideally, you should wash your Flavorizer Bars every time you use your grill and, at a minimum, clean them after two or three uses. This will ensure the long life of your Flavorizer Bars, and if you know how to speed up the cleanup process, it won’t even feel like a chore.
How to Install Flavorizer Bars?
There’s nothing quite as easy as installing Flavorizer Bars. When the grill has cooled down, simply remove the grill grates from your grill and pick out the Flavorizer Bars. These bars are not fastened to the grill, so it’s easy to pick them out. Then reverse the process with your new Flavorizer Bars, and you’re done!
