But that's the keyŚ if left on long enough. I don't spray it on and let it sit overnight or anything like that. I just spray it on and in about five minutes lightly scrub with a Mr. Clean scrubbing pad or a bottle brush. Not long enough for pitting to become apparent, but just long enough to eliminate the need for a lot of hard scrubbing.

I haven't noticed any pitting to date, and I've been using Easy-Off to clean my Cobb for close to two years now.

That sounds like a solution. FYI -- Easy-Off offers a Grill Cleaner, also.
In part, Their website states :
Can I use EASY-OFF« BBQ while my grill is on?

No. Turn your grill off and let the rack cool. After it is cool remove the rack, place on several layers of newspaper over cement. Apply EASY-OFF« BBQ Grill Cleaner liberally, allow foam to work for 40 minutes. Wipe with cloth or sponge, rinsing frequently.

I have the Easy Off BBQ cleaner. It works but nor quite as easy as the directions would have you believe. Just using a cloth or sponge would not get the job done. I had to get a bit more aggressive and use a 3M Green pad to get off all the residue. I finish off by using a little Bar Keepers Friend to polish things up. Be sure to wear gloves as the Easy Off is rough on the skin.

I pretty much do what everyone else above is doing. I was thinking back to when I had a Weber at home and I do not recall ever cleaning it other then using a bristle brush on the grill. I guess these Cobb's are so pretty we just need to keep them clean. I usually wait until morning and spray on the Oven cleaner and wipe with a paper towel. Actually only takes a few minutes. Being for the most part a full time RVer I am not really all that busy anyway.

There's the problem green eggs are only used with ham ;-)

Got one today!

Local CW had the Cobb Premier on close out for $69 and change. It seems perfect for grilling for two. I like the idea of the wok and the extension for beer can (or wine in a beer can) chicken. Trying it out tonight on a Cornish Hen.

I actually went to CW for vent fan covers....not in stock. I always buy stuff I didn't go there to get.
