    Heh. We just cleaned it this weekend. We soaked the grates overnight in a mix of vinegar and baking soda, then used a degreaser to clean the inside of the grill and drip pan. We bought new heat deflectors.

    The grill isn't lighting properly. I can see the sparks firing but it's not always lighting. What do you guys do? Should I take off the burner bars and clean them? Does grease somehow get inside them?

    Weird thing thing about the venturi tubes which carry the propane to the burners...the odor of the propane attracts spiders. And often the spiders lay eggs inside the tubes. The tubes are open, though, so easily cleaned out (if that's the case).

    Weber's iGrill (formerly, iDevices) has an Apple Watch app that is pretty great!

    I think those are identical links. How about this one?

    Or how about a headlamp? I seems the other grill lights are meant to be attached only when the grill is open. Can they be left on the grill when the grill is closed?

    Magnets don't stick to stainless steel BBQ parts.

    Oops. :) fixed it.

    Yeah, that's the other one that I initially found that looks good.
