Hey everyone. Bought a KC combo back in July of and have done your average amount of smoking on it. Just wondering if any other owners have the problem with the grates that cover the flame pot are completely rusting out to the point rust chunks are blowing onto the food cooked ? As you can see in the picture the glowing of the flame under what I thought would be thick durable sliding steel but instead it’s rusted a good 3/4 of it away !! I would imagine with the grate slide to shut you shouldn’t be seeing any type of glowing. Not to mention it creates very uneven heat cook spots ! The KC was only set to 350F in the picture as I’m afraid HIGH would begin to melt the lid off lol.

Don't have the KC Combo but have 2 other Pit Boss smokers. One I have had 2 years and the grates are fine, no signs of rust. I make sure they are coated very well with oil/spray and from what I understand this helps to keep away rust.
