Full Answer

Grills stored outdoors should be covered at all times to prevent rusting and other damage. A grill's drip tray should be checked for water, grease and other debris on a weekly basis. Walter that is allowed to sit in the drip tray causes rust. Regularly spraying a grill with vegetable oil and heating on low for about 10 minutes helps to protect your grill from rust.
