      Product Questions

      I can't tell from the photo but can we cook directly on the grate or do we need a pot / pan / something else? Also, how tick is the stainless steel grate?
      Question by jack
      Yes, You can cook directly onto the BBQ grate. We do however suggest using some type a cooking spray for anti sticking. As for the thickness of the grate it is 1/8 inch thick.
      Answer by Front Runner
      Will this grill "ride" on the spare under the bed of a pick up (Tacoma)?
      Question by Don
      The Braai was designed to be attached to a vertically mounted spare tire. That being said, the weight of the Braai could cause it to fall off if mounted on a spare under the bed of your truck. The Braai isn't really attached to the tire, it's more of pinched on with a strap going around the legs to keep it from flying off.
      Answer by Front Runner
      what is the grade of the stainless?
      Question by rona
      Rona,

      Our Braai is made with 3CR12 Stainless Steel.

      Best Regards,
      Bryan
      Answer by Front Runner
      How do you recommend cleaning the grill?
      Question by Tyler
      Tyler,

      Any grease fighting dish soap and warm water should do the job. You can also purchase any type of stainless steel grill cleaner at your local hardware store for tough stains.

      Answer by Front Runner
      Have you ever seen the grill warp during long usage and/or exposure to high heat?
      Question by Weldon
      Weldon,

      We have tested the grill in many different heat exposures and it has not warped in any way.

      Bryan
      Answer by Front Runner
      How securely does the grill cling to the rear-facing spare? Is it held by anything more than friction? Concerned about off-roading to destination and finding we lost the new grill somewhere along the way...
      Question by Another Mike
      Mike, the legs have "teeth" that help position it nicely, but we always run an additional strap, spare wheel cover, or our spare tire ladder for extra strength. Please check out the following link: http://www.frontrunneroutfitters.com/front-runner-spare-wheel-step.html#.UwzxlF72bLc
      Answer by Front Runner
      What is the total cooking area?
      Question by Chris
      The grill diameter is 23.6"
      Answer by Front Runner
      will it stink your car up after cooking?
      Question by Cooper
      The grill is meant to be stored on the spare tire outside of the vehicle, but if you kept it inside I would imagine it will have a smell from the fire and food you cooked yes. You can quick clean it before you put it away of course to help reduce that.
      Answer by Front Runner
      Was this the grill featured on Gizmodo, Jalopnik & Uncrate?
      Question by Kevin
      Yes it is! Along with many other popular gear and tech sites!
      Answer by Front Runner
      Any tips for using the first time and cleaning tips?
      Question by Brand New Grill
      You will want to do a quick wash before the first time you cook on it, as well as a wipe down before you cook after a drive. As for cleaning, a mild cleaner and scouring pad seem to work really well. It mainly depends on what and how much you cook on it. Thanks!
      Answer by Front Runner
      Do I have to let the grill cool down before I put it back on the tire?
      Question by Clueless
      That would be the best thing to do yes. We do not recommend picking up the grill while it is still hot.
