It appears so. Not all stainless steel is created equally. The entire outside of the grill is looking very weathered. How many seasons has this grill sat outside? What part of the country are you in?

Thank you for all the replies. The grill is less than a year old. I keep it covered and under a roof. I am kind of disappointed that it is rusting already. I will contact support

Keep us posted on what RT says. I'm sure they will take care of the issue.

I contacted Rec-Teq support (via email) and they got back to me very quickly. Support informed me that the discoloration was the result of the heat and it is normal and going to happen. I will go with that because other than the discoloration the grill has been faultless.

Wow!! If mine starts to go that way it will get cleaned up the painted with some hi-temp. paint, I would hate my grill looking like that. My 7 year old Camp Chef which is going to my neighbor looks almost new, and believe me, I have a lot of cooks on it.

Actually the sand and paint sounds like a good thought.

Do you live near the ocean where salt air can get to your grill?
Do you use commercial rubs which are loaded with salt and may be getting splattered on the lid and running down onto the front of the cookbox?
Have you ever cleaned the stainless with something like Bar Keeper Friend?
Do you use it at max temp a lot?
Mine is 6 month old and doesn't show any rust.
