Hi there, I have tried seasoning my new Ironwood 650 four times and I get this white blueish powder material (wiping down and vacuuming in-between seasoning) as well as the paint is peeling on the inside at the grease troft and on the other end just after the first season on both grills. Traeger has already replaced the first grill right away for the same reason. I am looking at a third replacement that Traeger has already authorized. Have you seen this before guys? It really doesn't seem food safe. Traeger is saying not to put food on it and then they change their mind saying its safe. any insight to this would be much appreciated!

Something, probably oil, is burning off and out gassing. This is what this burn in process is for. I'd clean it up and repeat until it's done.

Hello sir I have repeated the process 4 times, have you seen this on your grill at seasoning?

I did some mods in mine, added some items and drilled a big hole using oil. I cleaned what I could but the burn in did exactly as yours, coated everything white inside. I cleaned it up, and re-fired and let it run at 400F for an hour or two.

It will stop once everything is burned up.

Oh, and regarding paint peel in the drip channel, that's a high heat area, use a putty knife to scrape it clean. You can wipe it with cooking oil, it will season the metal and prevent rust.
