    Looks like my Cast Iron skillet right before it needs a good high temp clean.
  • Very common. They will get larger over time.

    Ignore them or scrub them off with crumpled foil or ??

    Or try a high temp burnout.

    every grill i've ever seen: gassers, webers, the BGE.

    just soot. scrape it off with aluminum foil ball or a grill brush iof it is flaking into your food.

    I had some in my dome a while back; mine were thicker and black in color. I took it as an indicator that it was in a desparite need of a good cleaning. I filled with a good portion of lump and let'r rip. Afterwards, the flakes/soot on the dome was dry enough to scrap off. I used a flexible putty knife.

    Good Luck,
