    What Caused this Kettle Rash?

    I just noticed this today on my Performer, not sure how it happened. Good news is that Weber is sending me a new bowl and ash sweeper. Looks like I will have a new copper planter.

    Has the finish been physically scratched off of the grill? Or did it blister off?

    Couldn't tell you. I just noticed it today. I haven't noticed any copper shavings on the ground.

    I get that on my blacks ( less noticeable) I always bank my coals on that side of the lid slide and I think that has something to do with it.

    Different smokes for different folks. Wish the Dollar Store sold gas!

    Something like this is happening with my black 22" but it seems to be where the grate holders are welded to the bowl. It is a pretty old kettle though.

    You don't see it too often on black kettles but older colored kettles you see it all the time. The cause is high heat (KettlePizza like Robert said used as a fire pit). You never see it north of where the charcoal grate sits. It's always from the charcoal grate area, down down.

    I used my KP on this one a few times before I got a dedicated pizza kettle.

    That’s a nice little piece of information to have, glad to hear it prior to firing something next week!
    But, most of my kettles are black anyway for that very reason! The “dark side” has its own rewards.
