sand the rust off and coat well with oil before and after use. If that doesn't work, just buy a new grate.

If you look at the paint can, it will say specifically not to paint a surface that comes into contact with food.

16.95 at Hpme Depot for a brand new Weber 22.5" grate. Don't spray paint a cooking grate... you should get grounded for a week for posting it.

Oh! Now you tell us! Still a big NO on the paint! What color were you thinking?

Seriously, if its expando burn off the chunks, wire brush it and oil it.

If you are really fussy about the appearance then get it sandblasted and immediately(still warm from blasting) veg oil it. Oil it the first few times of use. I would save the painted grill for a MIL that you don't need!!
