Question
« on: October 14, 2018, 05:39:35 PM »
I just as many love scrubbing down our classic kettles and make them look better than new. The question is, does some of that crud act as insulation and make the kettle retain heat and therefore youíre able to make the fuel last longer? Incase youíre wondering why I ask, itís turned cold on the home front and I had to turn the furnace on and Iím contemplating adding more insulation to the house.

I think the answer will be complicated.
The first thing we usually realize about the crud in our grills is how it seals up air leaks. This lets us use our vents more accurately.

Any "seasoning" beyond that is overkill, IMO.
