The inside top on mine is also peeling. Didn't pay $1000 for the thing, though, and it's 5 years old. Generally seems to be holding up, other than the flavorizer bars, which were not stainless.


I thought my bbq was doing the same thing (the black finish inside the lid was peeling off) until one day when I cleaned it and realized that under all the peeling gunk the original finish was still there and in good shape.

Apparently the smoke and grease doesn't all make it to your arteries... some of it escapes and gunks up the inside of your lid first wink

Oh, OK, sure, if it's a Weber, I'd use Dawn too, and buff it with a microfiber cloth.

Wid, I have 2 Webers also, a pair of their big Kettles. I like Mesquite charcoal (not briquettes). One wasn't enough to keep the steaks and the racks of lamb coming fast enough.

Mesquite charcoal gets so hot that the coal rack sags.

BTW, best way to start the coals is one of those chimneys that use a single piece of newspaper. Avoids starter fluid which makes everything taste like it was cooked in the engine compartment of a Mexican bus.

Yup, a smoker, that's BBQ.

Dry Rub on wet. Sesame Oil and vegetable oil combo, Kosher salt, fresh garlic, granulated onion, paprika and coarse ground black pepper (steaks).

Lamb, I put in a ziplock with plain white distilled vinegar and soy sauce for 1.5 hours. Then they get the same treatment as the steaks.

Man started grilling approximately 5 minutes after learning how to make fire.

I got a chimney starter & some real chunk charcoal. It all works great but now the wife says she misses the starter taste. Go figure

The Performer has a gas assist to start the charcoal. Even with that I still use a chimney, been using one for years. I mostly use briquettes (they burn more consistent), if I want that real wood taste I cook on the Horizon and use oak and or cherry wood.

For gas assist, I usually just had my dad stand next to the grill.

Why are your eyebrows close to the source of the gas?

I'm gullible, and my dad a ruthless prankster?
