    I was missing my bracket when I bought mine. It's a pretty cheap part though

    This is as clean as I can get it.
    I blasted everything with a red (pencil) tip nozzle on my 3600 PSI gas pressure washer that could easily amputate a toe.
    I also hit the back with a wire wheel which got most of it but was no fun.

    The main thing I wanted was to remove the previous owner's crud and replace it with my own.

    I think I'll quit, give it another long hot heat soak and concentrate on finishing the project.

    Thanks,
    -BB

    It sickens me that I can't remember who it was, but for quite some time, I ignored their advice and kept using my handy drill and a wire wheel to try and clean out the firebox. At some point, probably after slaving away for many more hours on a cookbox and making little headway, I said "**** it" and went to Harbor Freight and bought the $10-$15 4.5 inch angle grinder and a cup wire brush that this person had suggested.

    It was Life changing. Fireboxes take less than an hour now and all the larger flat surfaces get taken to gleaming aluminum. The only thing left to figure out is what to use in corners and nooks/crannies.

    I hear you dave. The angle grinder and wire cup brush are worth every penny X 10.

    I'm a slob. I just clean the fire box out pretty good.

    It immediately gets re-coated, so I don't think it's such a big deal.

    But again, I am a slob!

    Thyde: I hear you there, but for those that are refurbishing the grills for resale, it makes a buyers eyes light up when they see that bare bright aluminum inside the cook box.
