22 inch grill grate suggestion
« on: May 20, 2022, 04:15:01 AM »
Hi,

I feel like it's time for me to get a different grill grate for my 22 inch kettle.  I've used my vortex a few times and now the center of the original grate is all rusty.  I want get the kind where the center section is removable, and is hinged on each side for if/when I want to add more charcoal (model 8835 maybe?).  There are a few different options.....Brand, price etc.  Oddly enough, the Weber option through Amazon doesn't guarantee that it'll fit.

Are any of the off brands worth investigating?

What do you suggest?

Thank you.

+1 on the SnS 22 grate.  Mines two years old.   Itís used 250+ times a year.    Great durability and value.

I have one SNS 22" grate and it's been awesome although I never use it with a vortex.  I use the Weber Gourmet BBQ grate with the cutout for vortex items.  I keep it nice and oily so it's never rusted.  It's not even silver anymore, more of a black color.

Another vote for the SnS grate. I use mine with the vortex all of the time. Never an issue.

I have the SnS easy spin grate.  304 ss.   Had it for 4+ years and it has probably nearly 1000 cooks on it.  No rust.    No warping.  Welds are all still solid.   Its the only grate I use for my 22s. 

Killagrilla is also very good.  If you cook outdoors a lot, quality stainless is really the best choice.

I second this.  Mark Baron (KG) made the heaviest and nicest grates in the business.  Iíve got a few sets for various sized kettles and they are the stuff.  I guess everyone has to retire at some point.

Hunsaker makes a nice ss grate.  I have have a Killa Grilla, now going out of business, and a hunsaker.  Hunsaker is not as thick as KG, but does not rust either.

  How do you store your Nice and Oily Weber Grate?
