Kettle grates

I paid $75. to have a SS grate made for my grill, got tired of the old one's rusting...

^ I like the Stainless idea myself. We got them on our latest grill and it was a nice upgrade. Longer lasting and easier to maintain.

Meh, I've never had the urge to spend much on a grill grate. Like Del said, usually the genuine Weber grates last a long time and even if you do want to eventually replace it you can probably get one for under $20. 

If I were going to get one though, I would do a custom stainless steel one.

Nothing wrong with them del, have had two in the past twenty years but have doing a lot of cooking lately with cast with great results. My big charcoal unit has porcelain coated grates which work well but the grill only hits a max of 350 or so (unless i use whole bag of coals).

That's the thing, cast runs hot and stays hot ,great for searing but needs attention..

Had a kettle around for many years, cooked often both home and cabin.  Never had a grate burn out.  That was my experience.  

175 for a cast iron grate for a Weber Kettle just seems to be gilding the lily.   And my experience in BWCA with cast iron grates is that they take forever to get hot.    

I'll keep what I have, but will be interested in your experience.

I just did an internet search but I didn't find as many as I thought there would be. I was looking for a Crimson Tide one but only found one for a square gas grill. :D

I know of a company locally that does metal work that I'm sure would make me one if I wanted it. I have no idea what they may charge me though....:sick:

Anyone with a laser could do it I'm sure.

There's always the Grill Beast too....

Any metal shop with a CNC plasma could cut a custom grate. I have a guy on the other side of the wall from me with one.

In Mexico? :D

I like the one you have in the picture Bobberineyes. The grates raise on the sides for adding charcoal and wood. I would think a shot of Pam after things cool would keep the grates from rusting too bad, like you would a cast iron pan.  They are  $150 on their site, a little too  steep for sear marks for me.

If your not going for looks, but for cast iron cooking,  get some rectangular ones and just set them on the factory grate. With a little patience you may even be able to find some for free. Landfills usually have many grills setting in the metal pile. That's how I got mine.:D

Thanks for the responses gents, I like the thought of hot grates and longer lasting heat on long cooks. Just not sure which way I'll go, Amazon has a 5 pc set up 4 removable grates and the ring for 95 + shipping. At certain times it might be good for a grate or two out of the way instead of the ends stood up...

It was a misspelling of "smoking" by a user on another site posting from his phone with fat fingers.   See also "boaranese"  :P  

That site is frequented by exiles and deplorables

    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
    • The recipe I sort of followed said to cook it for 15-17 minutes at 350 but it took about 25-30 minutes to get the potatoes done even though I sliced them thin.   It's worth a try. We do a shrimp boil sometimes when we go camping with a group. I do it in the turkey pot and follow the recipe from Old Bay seasoning w-e-b-s-i-t-e except I like to add some chicken as well. It is very good and everyone loves it. 
    • How long and what temp did you cook this? Looks really good I want to give it a try now.
    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
