Question Paint inside my grill is peeling

I have a Weber gas grill that I love. This will be it's 3rd season. I have used it a few times this year already and love everything about it. The one problem I am having though is that the paint on the inside of the cover towards the back is all peeling off. There are chunks of is hanging down that I need to knock off before grilling each time as I am worried about it falling on my food as it cooks. Has anyone else experienced anything like this with their grill? Any ideas why this might be happening?

Yes GB, I had this problem and called Weber directly. They told me that this was not paint but soot. Weber said to scrape it off and clean it good. I did and it is fine now. Hope that helps.

Thanks MM. Maybe I will give them a call. This is most definitly not soot. It is shiny and pliable. It is whatever coating they put on the inside of the grill. It might not be paint, but it is not soot. That is for sure.

Let me know what they say - I'm interesting to know. They are very helpful - and very accommodating. They have sent me new grates, free of charge, twice! Good luck!

If it does turn out to be paint, there is a black spray paint made specifically for grills that can be found at the big home improvement stores &/or anyplace that sells grills, woodstoves, etc.

Yeah I have seen that paint BC, but I would think that that is what this would have been in the first place since it was what was applied by the grill manufacturer.

This is on the inside of the grill so i don't even know why I would need anything in there at all even.

Webers are not painted on the inside.

My Weber owner's manual mentioned it specifically. It's fat from the food you cook that accumulates over time. Repeated applications of heat turn it into that shiny black stuff that peels off like bad paint.

Occasionally brush it off with the grill brush.

I have been trying to brush it off, but it is on there good. Thanks Andy. Now that you posted this I do seem to remember reading tht in my manual when i first got the grill. It is amazing how similar to paint it looks.
