Tell me about it. The kettle is a DI marked model. They used it twice between between 2007 and 2013 and whoever used it last left a ton of charred pieces of grease and gunk. Apparently they could fork the money for the OTG model but not the money for a grill brush. The grate is 95% rusted and part of it is flaking off pieces of it. The charcoal grate is rusted completely but isn't flaking so I might rehab it a bit and keep it.
