@WeberGrills Wooden Handle Treatment

So I had been debating whether to use Spar Varnish or Tung Oil on the untreated wood handles for one of my lucky Weber Kettles.  After long deliberation and consulting a couple of my trusted lobstermen Captains Mark Ring and Pete Mondello I decided to go with the Tung oil.

The main reasoning for going with the Tung oil being that the spar varnish in the sun outdoors over time will likely crack and need to be sanded to reapply whereas the Tung oil just need a rag to wipe them down with more Tung oil when they lose a little luster.

Here are some photos before and after with a couple of coats over the course of two days.  It couldn’t be easier to apply.  Just dribble a little on and spread it evenly with a clean piece of cloth.
