I spent a big chunk of today scrubbing, scraping, soaking & otherwise cleaning our Weber grill, and it works again. Maybe submerging the burner ring in boiling water had the biggest positive effect. So for now, pending some test hamburgers in the near future, it would seem our Weber Baby Q has proven itself worth of keeping around a bit longer.
I'm a level witcha: I have *never* cleaned that sucker, apart from occasional scrapes of the grates and grill inner walls. It was WAY overdue.
This is a cautious dip of the toe into the Fediverse and away from Big Social. This instance could disappear or be repurposed at any time. It's kind of a playground for now. Maybe it will become something useful.
