Lots to think about. Thanks guys for all the valuable info. Shifting gears, what do you guys use to clean the lid? I've used soap and water to get most of the grease off but there are still some burn marks. Is the only way to get rid of that repainting? 166601533_143767077665799_5644443133717001071_n_1.jpg

Yah, you are probably looking at a repaint to get rid of those marks if you tried scrubbing already. The good thing is that basically the entire grill is either vinyl or aluminum so there is no real chance of rust becoming an issue. The marks won't affect the grilling ability of that grill, but if you want it looking nice, you are likely looking at a repaint.

First try scotch pad and Barkeepers friend, Ajax, or comet type stuff on the lid. About the grates. Mine were in similar fashion, and I chiseled, and grinded all the rusted and flakey enamel off, seasoned them with oil or tallow, and now treat them like a cast iron skillet. They are working fine. I wish I had a before picture, but this is one I just rehabbed yesterday - It was a rusted up mess. I have done about a dozen Qs, they all suffer the same problem, and I have managed to save them all so far. I think you could also if you want to put some time in.20210322_104700.jpg

I use Weber stubborn stain remover. It is pricy at $14 but it is not as aggressive as bar keeper’s friend on the finish. It says it is for use on painted surfaces but it does take a fine layer of paint off. Weber does recommend it for the Q grills. I got mine on clearance at 50 % off so it was not quite so bad.
