Seasoning CGW grids

I've used canola oil for the first coat to season the grids and was wondering what others use for the continued mainenance on their grids. I was thinking Pam for Grilling would be fast and easy to use hereafter.

    I use canola oil. I have had mine so long I don't oil every time now and its pretty well seasoned and non stick.

    I wouldn't use spray oil. I just don't like the residue it leaves on pans after time. Maybe its the water in those sprays.  Just my opinion.

    I seasoned it once. Then fired it up. Then let it cool. Then cooked a bunch of 80/20 burgers on it and haven't touched it since.
