Specialty Grate Upgrades
Enhance your cooking experience with our specialty cooking grate upgrades! When purchased with a grill, these grates take the place of the standard cooking grate.
IMPORTANT SIZING NOTE: The grate upgrade options in this section are adjusted sizes, built to fit our standard fireboxes and frames bases. (For example, a standard 36 x 24" firebox or frame base would have a 33.5" x 23" grate. You would select the size of your base "example, 36x24" but the grate will actually be the adjusted size which is compatible with your unit. If you purchase a grate upgrade by itself without a base unit, you will still receive the adjusted grate size. If you want a grate that is actual size, 36x24" for example, please contact us for a custom invoice.
All grates come with welded channel tabs with holes for wire on two sides. If you do not want channel tabs, please contact us for a custom invoice.
Free Float stainless Round Rod Grate is designed with the serious everyday BBQ'er in mind. Each rod is independent and can spin freely in the machined holes on the grate frame. This allows each rod to expand and contract with multiple temperatures radiating from the grill without pulling/pushing on the outer frame creating a warp free grate. This feature also makes cleaning a breeze because you can clean the top then spin each rod and clean the bottom. We suggest using a 304 or 316 grade wire brush, Pumice stone, Plastic Bristle Brush, or a wet cloth while the grill is warming up. Warning: Using a steel brush will cause grate to rust.
