Not me, mine's in pieces. I need to reassemble it with the new igniter now that I cleaned it up.

Well, the "new igniter" expanded to include a new regulator and further re-assembly. *sigh*

(That's what I get for letting it sit without repair over the winter, I guess.)

I got my new grill last season so I'm hoping it lasts for a while.

Oh, this is a cheaper version (about 20 years old, too) and it worked flawlessly until the astounding straight-line winds we get here broke the attachment to the deck rail and blew the unit over onto its face...hard. One burner still works just fine and I'm attempting to repair the knob-control for the other one now.

I don't need the second burner but I don't like having something that controls a heat source that doesn't work right; might be dangerous.

That time of the year again. I had to do a cleaning job of the back patio to enjoy grilling out there. Got lucky this year and the grill fired right up!

Mine fires up, now, but it looks pretty shabby. I bought the high-temp paint (1200F) to touch it up once I get the thing all cleaned. I haven't ever used the stuff before; would you paint the inside of the firebox as well as the outside?

I don't know for sure Nuth, I would probably play it safe and just spray the inside with Pam or brush it with cooking oil .

Not sure about spraying the inside. Using the wrong stuff could give the food an unpleasant flavor I would think. If it doesn't like the heat you'll just be smoking your bbq in it

Good points, guys. The outside definitely needs the treatment but the inside seems to be fine. Leaving the inside alone sounds like the way to go. (It'll likely make it easier to clean, too.)

Thanks!

After you paint the outside and before you cook in it give a good hot burn because the paint will probably smoke some before it bakes on good .

At least it did for me and I had let it dry for many days on my smoker and a couple of months on my woodstove .

Well, the outside can get painted but the inside isn't going to... doesn't need to. As I scrape and scrub, it is becoming increasingly obvious that the thing is cast aluminum and should eventually clean up completely. Holy cow! That thing was black, I thought it was from paint.

What I get for inheriting a BBQ from my ex, I guess.

Nuth, is your grill tied into the gas in your home or does it have it's own bottle/tank ?

It's a standalone. I considered having it plumbed in but I wanted to be able to move it around as I rearrange the deck from season to season. (I keep a lot of herbs and tomatoes and stuff out there in the warm weather.)
