I have a rusted daisy wheel can I just take it apart and clean with my bench grinder soft side wire wheel and then spray paint it with bbq black paint? or is it better to season it? I have used it a few times aftr i had a burn off in the oven now I got to do it again and then get the rust off for the inside should I just use steel whool cuz cant get it inside with the grinder wheel Thanks


  • If it is not very rusty a little cooking oil will get it back to good as new.

    I would knock the loose stuff off with a hand held wire brush, coat it with lard or vegetable oil and put it in the Egg after a cook.
  • Spray with food release.. (PAM)

    not sure the new ones are painted. they are black, sure, but look pretty "metallic" if you ask me.

    hey bobby-Q, they painted, er what?

    if they are, mine isn't painted any more.

    i just store it in the egg, and it stays seasoned. (except my small daisy, which is physically fused to the egg and won't come off)

    When I shut the egg down, I put the "daisy wheel" in the egg and put the ceramic top on the egg. I've only had mine since labor day, but there is no rust.
  • Like Buckethead said - Just spray it with some Pam and store in your Egg.
