Braver than I am to put it on the grill. There are a lot of "unknown" materials that will offgas and cause an explosion. Turned out good though. I'm thinking it was some type of shellac/varnish/creosote or something

Yea, I warmed up the bottle slowly and that thought that you mentioned entered my mind. I did keep the lid on the grill closed unless I was cleaning.

That’s what I would call dedication to having the most complete St.Louis soda bottle collection that I have every seen.

Mineral spirits is a good solvent for many tar-like substances. If that doesn't do the job, acetone - as robbybobby64 suggested - is a potent solvent.
