If you are interested in my Weber Go-anywhere top vent mod you can check it out here, along with a parts list.
Also a super simple mod that I highly recommend is a cut stainless grate mod for the Charcoal Go-Anywhere which you can see here
Using an old beat up Igloo cooler, I disassembled the grill and put the wood handle aside and then tossed all the parts in the cooler with some warm water and dish soap.
Then heated up more water in the electric water kettle and poured that it and shook it all up to coat the lid and vents and legs with the soapy hot water.
Placed the lid on and let it sit for twenty minutes and then went back to it and used a piece of fine steel wool to scrub her down using the soapy hot water.
Even though the grill started out caked up with dirt and gristle the technique loosened up everything to make light work of it.
I highly recommend this method. If you don’t have an old beater cooler laying around to use, there are usually tons of them for sale on Facebook marketplace. You should be able to find one for under $10.
