1st clean up project
« on: July 10, 2019, 03:33:46 AM »
I picked up a 2012 performer on Monday night and started digging into the clean up last night. Much more dirty than I thought - my guess is it hasnít had a deep clean ever! The sweep system is rusted together - Iíll probably cut it off and replace it. Unfortunately there is some surface rust on the bottom of the bowl, just pitting. Iím not overly concerned for a couple reasons this grill will be stored in the garage when not in use and I will likely take this stand and make a 26Ē performer out of it...maybe next year. Is there anything I should do in the interim to keep the bowl from getting worse?

1 strange thing about this performer is someone took off the serial number decal. Does this happen often? Is the serial number located anywhere other than the decal?

Are all the sweep systems the same for the 22Ēers? Will this work:

That one will work just fine.  It is their coated steel standard replacement version.   They also have a harder to find stainless steel version.  The part number escapes me.   Other members probably know it by heart!

As clean as itís gonna get for now - time to cook! Carne asada & chicken breast for the first test!

Bowl didnít come quite as clean as I hoped.

That bowl looks pretty clean for a cooker.
My gen2 Performer has a serial number/information decal that is unreadable from sun damage. I will eventually remove it. That is probably what happened to yours.
