Olive oil isn't a good choice because it usually carries a distinct flavor and anything other than a refined OO has a smoke point too low for grills. They don't have any more sodium or salts than any other oils.

Any refined vegetable oil or even the Pam spray mentioned above work great.

When I wanted a different grate / cooking surface for my favorite RV / portable grill, I simply found an oversized version of what I wanted and cut it down to fit.

I liked it so much, I made a spare grate and obtained another grill too [emoticon]

Since the original was circa 1985, I went to eBay for an extra complete grill "new in the box"

Back then, LP grills had "Lava Rock", I replaced that heat diffusion media with a more modern ceramic product as well.

Now I have a one of a kind tiny grill that actually works better than any full sized BBQ I have ever used...............

I grill/BBQ almost every day. Over the past 45 years I have had many cheap gas grills, 3 charcoal and one smoker. The worst thing you can do to a grill with cast iron grates is to burn the food off after cooking and not seasoning the grates for the next use. I never clean my grill after use. I clean my grill when I am going to use it and season the grates. However, if you don't cook as often as I do then clean the grates after you cook and oil the grates. I live in a hot humid place so I now have a Weber Geneses III gas grill with heavy stainless steal grates (expensive but worth it). For my 34 year old Weber charcoal grill and smoker every few years I replace the grates. I will not have another grill with cast iron grates. I have also had grills with cast iron burners that did not last 2 years. I do love my cast iron pans.

For camping I'm with you on using stainless steel grates especially in humid climates.

My cast iron dutch ovens and pans are not stored in the RV when we are not traveling. I bring them inside the house for storage. I'll load them back into the RV during trip prep.

After use I clean them and re-season with lard or other low/no salt oil. Never olive oil which has a high salt content depending on the brand.
