Can you grill on rebar?

Food would stick to rebar. Not really a problem. What I do is in spring and again if it’s going to be a while between cooks is put a thin coat of Crisco (the solid stuff) all over it and cure it for an hour or more at 250*. This takes care of any chance of rust (which is high) and sticking.
