You will not find any other replacement for the price of a new Weber grate!!
They just don't exist..

You can take the time to clean it, then find a good welder to fix the loose rods.

Otherwise, spend the money and move on..

I think that you have been very fortunate to get one so cheap. Put in the time, or pay the price..

Find another used Ranch with a good cooking grate for cheap dollars. Buy it. Bring it home and switch the grates. Resell the Ranch and get your money back.
This is the original Weber kettle. The most powerful bbq grill in the world and can blow your taste-buds clean off! So, you have to ask yourself one question: "Do you feel hungry? Well, do you punk?"

In Europe you can find custom made SS grates for approx. $1 per 0,39" of diameter (1 cm). It doesn't make sense to take them for 18 or 22" cookers (as the final price is similar to what Weber offers here) but for 26 and the ranch it makes really sense. New 26 SS grate costs here approx. $160 and for the ranch it's simply unavailable (can imagine that I could order it by Weber Europe but then I would pay $250 + shipping + tax + their margin = priceless...)

Is it rusted, through, pitted, or just dirty? Those grates are heavy duty SS and clean up super nicely with some elbow grease, wire brush, wire cup brush on a grinder, or fire.

Is the $245 ranch grate a normal price?  I have a ranch that a college kid used as a fire pit and burned wood on top of the cooking grate.  Totally ruined the grate.  I paid $350 and I think the grates were about $179.  Before I bought a replacement WEber jumped the price.  I thought they were around $300.  Might be time to replace before steel price go up again.

I would leave work in the middle of the day, drive 100 miles on an empty tank and put my bank account in the red for a chance at a 50 dollar ranch lol

@Tionoel.  You might have a grate or a ranch for critterhunter and liquidocelot?

Winter finally left my area and was able to use my outside faucets. The cooking grate ended up not being that bad off. It did end up having 3 popped welds in the grates and the weld that connects the outer ring.  It cleaned up ok but not shiny new cleaned up. The charcoal grate is trash though. But that's only $67.

Fearing a dirty grate from someone else is irrational. Heat cures all ills. I understand that a new grate helps sell a grill you're flipping, to the uneducated.
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

If any welds popped on my RK grate, I'd be tempted to talk to a local welding shop and price out a repair.
