chipped some paint on my Weber grill...

Welll, it finally had to happen. My newish Weber charcoal grill fell off the porch, and onto the AC unit. Chipped some paint off of the grill, and I can see shiny metal.

I can see where the bare spot is oxidizing, so I'll have to sand that down first. My question: Do I need to use special primer and paint to fix this?

High temp engine paint should work.

Just clean it up and paint; shouldn't need to prime.

Rustoleum makes a high temp grill paint. It's not glossy though, I don't think.

I guess I'm the only one that doesn't care if his grill is scratched.

If it scratches, it starts to rust. Rust then gets under the paint, and the paint chips off. Then, more rust and less grill.

Rust is evil.

My Jenn-Air grill (though stainless), has been serving me well for 12 years now.

Take care of something, and it'll last...

Fair enough, I typically store mine with a cover over it so rain/snow don't bother it much.

You should call Weber customer service and see if they sell or will send you some touch-up paint.

Humidity still gets at it and can rust, I know from experience.

They can't, on the their standard charcoal grill it's not really paint it's a baked on glass like enamel that's applied when the steel is red hot. Kind of like enamel cast iron cookware very durable but on a thin steel grill it'll easily chip if knocked over.
Your best bet it to sand down to bright metal and use some bbq paint and keep an eye on it over time. Even the best spray on bbq/stove paint wont protect from rust and stand up to heat the way the factory coating will.

I'd be more worried about the A/C unit.

Sounds like something I might do after too many G & T's

When I was a youngin, my grandma fell off the porch but she was old. Trying to imagine how a charcoal grill falls off the porch into the a/c condenser. Are the wienies ok?

I thought I saw at Home Depot one time some touch up paint specifically for grills. It won't be powder coat but better than bare metal. Our Weber gas grill is pushing 12 years old on it's original burners. Worth every penny of their inflated price.

This would be worth a try. If they won't send paint they may have advice.

A/C unit and the burgers are fine. The lid of the grill, not so much...

I'll contact Weber in case they have something. Or I'll hit Home Depot for the grill paint.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.
