My first annual check and maintenance on The front of my Summit cookbox. Looks ok after after 1 year. I can see some surface rust inside underneath. That’s for another day to take apart and clean.

Hard to tell because the photo resolution is so small but looks to me like you've got serious rust beginning under the porcelain

For my untrained and fading eyes, I'd like to see what you are talking about, Larry, so I can recognize the signs...

Thanks for confirming you had me worried there for a minute!

there is definitely rust getting a good start on the bottom of the cookbox. See the photos below.

At some point this summer I will take the grill apart and get under there. But how to remove the rust? Scrape off and paint with high heat rust oleum?
