Cast iron grate

I just purchased a cast iron grate for xl. Is there anything need to do for seasoning or is it ready to go? Any tips on cleaning? Will I need to do any changing to the way I cook steaks and burgers.

    You could season it if it isn't already.  But keep in mind you'll probably inevitably ash the seasoning off if you do a hot grilling.  So IMHO, it's ready to go.  Maybe oil right before you put food on it.  Or better yet, oil on the food if that's appropriate.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.  Love me or hate me, I am forum Marmite.

    What I was told was just use it with some fatty food.

    I oil before use.

    Thanks, sounds like a good batch of burgers should do the trick.
