Of course. Leave it to CA to be the first place to open flavorizer bars.


Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.

It's what Weber coins the "flavourizer bars" that are breaking down quickly. That product should clean up the rust but these have already reached the point of deterioration. Probably better to put the money to replacement parts. We just had it covered in the winter months, I wouldn't do this with the next grill.

Those are about $50 to replace, at least on my grill. Did yours come with porcelain ones or stainless?

I'm not sure. I'll search for the manual to see exactly what replacement part I need. I was just really shocked at the rust and wear occurring in the insides before firing it up for the first time this spring.

I'm not shocked at all about rust on the flavorizer bars.

That's why you should've purchased a barbecue instead grin laugh laugh .

It's just that those are the things that get the most heat and the most gunk on them. As far as I'm concerned, they're sacrificial.

I am still using a weber genesis from 1993. We use it year round here in CT and have not covered it in about 10 years. The exterior is fine. Where weber hammers you is in the grid and flavorizer bars. I've tried multiple versions, none of them last respective the relative cost. I'm considering using angle iron and rebar the next go round as my replacement components are now "special order". My advice ... buy what you like,enjoy it, eat well, and cross your fingers or say a prayer that it all works out.

I have two Webers, one is a Weber Performer and a WSM and both are solid units.

Then again I also have nice Horizon Smoker which is by far my favorite for BBQ.

Ken upon a recommendation I placed a sheet of expended metal over the top of the flavorizer bars on our Genesis and then placed a layer of lava rock over that ... works like a charm and it seems to add a little flavor to the food grilled.

To the original question, I'll do a thorough washing of our stainless Weber grill every few months with Dawn dishwashing liquid, let it dry and throw the cover back on. Keeping the cover on and staying away from the abrasive or acidic cleansors is key with a stainless grill in my estimation.
