I used an angle grinder coupled with a cup wire brush...Very nice how did you clean the inside of the cookbox?
I wish I could but I just finished it to give me that satisfaction of having refurb'd a weber. I'll be grilling in Houston with a Q200 for now until my Silver C moves with the rest of our stuff.Very good job with those bars and grates looks better than new. Now that sucker will last a long time down in Houston. Now lets see it cook something.
