    What is this?

    Hi All,

    Woke up this morning to go clean my grill from yesterdays cook, and saw this. Looks like rust, but this is a brand new grill and rust doesn’t make sense. Just curious if anyone knows what this is and if it’s normal.

      Thanks, but doesn’t make sense given that this is literally 2 weeks old. Would think they would make these things rust proof.

    Spray it with pam and season it quickly. Remove the rust and season it.

        I'd clean it off and see if the paint was lost and you're seeing bare metal that's rusted. Regardless, it's brand new so if it's even slightly defective, I'd return/exchange it.

        Smoked some Ribs yesterday. It was only my second cook on the grill. First was earlier in the week.. just some chicken legs.

      Huh. It looks like rust but I'd wipe it off. I wonder if some iron/steel powder was there and rusted? very odd.

        Return it. Weber will make good.

            I don't think it's rust. Here is what the good folks over at Virtual Weber Bullet have to say.

            I get the same thing on my WSM, and knock it off with a wire brush if it gets bad enough to bother me. Which means I very rarely give it a second look.

              Thank you! Appreciate the link. Very informative and consistent with what I did which was low and slow with water in a roasting pan.

              Immediately thought of that post when I read this thread. Good job finding it.

          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

          Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

          Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


          This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
