Rusted Grill Grate

My Weber Q 200 Grill grate has rusted up. I thought the porcelain coating was supposed to prevent rust. The grill was stored outside but was always covered up. Will weber replace the grate if it is out of warranty?

And why do you want to replace it? just use bit of wirebrush, scarape off biggest bits, wipe rest with cooking oil and use as normal.

after cooking wipe clean (do not wash!!!) and use bit of cooking oil again to preserve it.

The grill grates have to be replaced often because the porcelain comes off. Where can I get another kind of grate to fit the CGB36ru since your price of about $70 times six is very expensive. What keeps...


Hi steve tell...
I would measure the inside of the grill and go to a welding shop and have them make me a stainless steel grate made from expanded metal that would fit my grill and never go back to the porcelain coated grills and their sticking,cracking,rusting again.
It will be somewhat expensive, but it will be worth it and it will be a one time purchase.
Most of the porcelain grills get faults in the porcelain from heating and cooling that allows greases and salts from cooking to seep into and get behind the porcelain to rust the steel grills that the porcelain is bonded to.
That is what causes the porcelain to pop off...the rust.
Please take time to rate me

My outdoor Built in BBQ has a lot of rust, but NOT rusted through. I want to get rid of the rust and then treat it and paint it to prevent further rust


If the rust is on the exterior of the grill, remove the rust using a steel bristle brush and then smooth it down with sand paper.Spray a light coating of High Temperature Grill Paint (you can find it at most hardware stores and home centers) This first light coat, will act as the primer coat. After it thoroughly dries, apply 2 more light finish coats allowing each coat to dry, before applying the next coat.
Based on the air temperature and the humidity level in your area, wait at least 3 days before using the grill.

If the rust is on the inside of the grill, just removing the rust will generally take care of it As most grill tubs are made of cast aluminum and don't require painting. What may appear to be rust is flaked on food and grease. In which case, a plastic putty knife and a roll of paper towel will take care of it.

And finally, investing in a grill head cover (made for built-in grills), will really help in not allowing the grill to rust again.

Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!!

The porcelain enameled bowl has rusted out at the bottom vent slide. Where can we find the replacement part? Or where can I buy a new one?


Unfortunately, Weber doesn't consider that a replaceable part, like a grill grate or handle. It's considered a part of main body of the grill and is not replaceable.

Sorry, I wish I had better news for you on repairing it. However, you can purchase on similar to from any Weber dealer. You can locate one at the following link http://dealer.weber.com/

Hope this helped you. Happy Grilling!!

Weber silver b. cooking grate has rusted. what is it made of. terrible!


Steel with either a black porcellian finish or a chrome finish. Depends on the model.

Stainless Steel or Cast Iron is my personal favorite. It wears extremely well and is easy to clean.

Side metal pieces that cover the Viking grill burner are rusted. Do I need to replace the whole burner or just use until burner holes become clogged that then replace?


I would suggest first lifting them out, give them good brush with wirebrush, check if holes are not clogged, check for any not surface damage, they ususally rust bit over on the surface and that is all.

If grill flame is working correctly, and grating have still "decent" thickness and is not falling to pieces, I would still use them normally.

Rust on the grate is usually caused by not using it and exposure to rain/water, as this grating is usually rather solid, surface rust will not affect it. If you have model with stainless graing - there should be no rust on stainless...

That is one of the reasons why you should not wash your grill after use! Fat from cooked food is protecting it from environment.

Hope this will help your worries at bay :-) Enjoy your grill!

My grate is rusting. I've never washed it or put it into a dishwasher. I's not supposed to rust!


Hello. You are correct. You could contact weber and state your case, or if you just want to get on with life, use some WD-40 penetrating lubrication to remove the rust, then cover those areas with some high temperature grill paint available at home depot, lowes, and most other hardware stores. Joe
