    Ball Valve Drain

    Posted by Doug Roth on May 25th 2021

    When I ordered my stainless steel grill from JD, this was not suggested as an option.... but after having my Santa Maria grill installed and experience a winter in NJ, I would absolutely consider this an essential add-on if your grill is permanently mounted in an exposed location. Even though my grill had a custom vinyl cover, the firebox ended up accumulating a significant amount of water over the long winter months (rain / snow melt). I am glad to see that this is being suggested as an add-on feature...
