    Looks like surface rust. Post some other pics from further away. Red scotchbrite then rub some fat on it. Wet ash is acidic and will take out your bbq in no time.

      I will get some more pics tomorrow. It is stored in a garage and not left in the rain but I suppose it is cheap parts

    Mine did that also. Mine was just the surface. Since the manifold gets super hot they just used regular steel. Stainless routinely held at high temps can stil rust.

      So no reason for concern? Just clean per Ahumadora's comments?

      I just hit mine with a wire brush, then oiled it and kept going.

      Had been rusty for about 6 months with no ill effect. I would have tested longer but it’s a bit bent out of shape now.

      I don’t think there is much else you can do that won’t burn off or become non food safe from out-gassing. Just oil or food grease and heat.

        If the wheel fell off, it must be a sign. 🕶

          Well, it is an easy fix but it is a 2 person job as I can't lift the 200 pounds and slide the wheel back on at the same time. I will have some help shortly.

          If I already had one, does that count?

          I saw that in your "Past Loves" but you can always come back to a fire pit - trash can.

        Wheel is back on so we are back in business.

          Did you balance and rotate since one was already off? If the right wheel comes off a Chevy Duramax you can just go ahead and change the fuel filter.....
