The best way to repair that is pop rivets, if you weld a new plate in the chances arit will rust back out here it been weld .you could braze it but prolly wouldn't look that good, don/t think flux core will work..

Well he's already done. I figured it would be a day or two before he got to it but he cut the plate and welded it on this afternoon.

I'm picking it up in the morning. I'll post pics of the repair.

You can tell by looking at it that the only reason it ever rusted in the first place was neglect. There was old ash piled up in it from no telling how long ago. If cleaned out regularly the Weber porcelain coat can take a ridiculous amount of use.

I think the best (and easiest) way would be to find a piece of sheet metal larger than your hole and just use some small screws to screw it on there.

His grinder died on him so I'll have to finish dressing it up but he did good!

Next I'm gonna fill the remaining pits on the inside by brazing.

The impressive thing is that he didn't even use flux core. It was just steel wire.

Ok here is the plan. Sandblast the pitted area on the inside until it is totally clean. Then use a rosebud torch and brazing rods to tin over the whole entire rusted area.

Anyone see a reason this won't work? The goal is to completely cover any bare steel on the inside.

Ok I'm still gonna sandblast, but now instead of brazing I'm gonna use this to fill in the pitted area.

Its good to 2400* and is safe for use in grills. I got it at Pep Boys.

For some reason tin sounds a lot better. test some of the stuff first, burn it and see if any smoke or foul smells come off of it. I am still wondering who picked up the ranch kettle from San Mateo on CL for $100 ??? Was this you?

You actually have to cure it with high heat. I'm sure there will be some fumes during this process.

I found an MSDS for it, and it only contains steel dust, magnesium silicate, and sodium silicate. None of which should be harmful. However, you can bet my nose will be at full alert in case anything weird comes off of it.

This stuff could be the answer to alot of pit repair issues out there.

Nope I'm in Southeast Louisiana. But that is an even better deal than mine. I paid $200
