Two questions:

1) With this grill's newer WiFire technology should I leave my grill plugged in and turned on all the time?

2) What is the best way to keep the grilling grates clean. Brushing and scraping or with cleaning solutions?

Thanx,
RB

I leave mine plugged in, but it is plugged into a UPS for surge protection and brownouts/power failures during overnight cooks. It will update itself this way too.

Brushing while the grate is WARM, not hot does a grate job. :)

So I'll leave mine plugged in and the switch on the back of the pellet hopper turned on.
Thanx much

I do 24/7 but mine is under cover on my porch, sitting on a marble slab, only gets sprayed when it rains in really high winds, never had an issue in a year now. I also have a cover for it, (thnx to a very generous buddy here) but I get lazy now and then.

Yep, mine is under a patio porch cover all the time and the grill's cover when not in use. 👍

My only concern is it's electronic componants...I live in AZ and my outdoor (shaded areas-not direct sunlight) temps can get to 105-110 at times. Whew 🥵

Well that means your handle is already 110° before you even start a cook... so maybe you won't have a 'hot' handle in the winter.

Right LOL but there is a difference between an ambient 110° temp and a direct handle heat of 153° (shot it with a temp gun) I am smart nuff to know the difference I asure you LOL
