Quoted from fattrain:
A lightly moist towel (or 10) to get off most of the dirt layers.3. Then probably a little simple green on a rag (or similar) around the PF.blockquot
Do not use water on the rag. Camp fuel (Naptha) works well and whe wood in the PF will not "soak" it up.
I thought I posted all below text, but it does not seem to show up...so here goes again.
As for the prototype....
My TFTC has those hotdog inserts in the head as well. I contacted Johb Borg (Designer) about it and he said it was not a prototype. John said that real prototypes have a spelling error on them (Apron area IIRC) I also think he said something about different colours.
John also said that the hotdog inserts were not from the factory and that someone probialy insetrtd them with a router.
Now that I see several people with the same inserts, I am beginning to think they are indeed factory.
