Reproduction SS Grates for Smokey Joe Platinum aka Outider
« on: February 06, 2018, 07:10:19 PM »
Thanks to @Cellar2ful for the idea. The standard 18 grate doesn't fit in these.
I have been in contact with Mark, the owner of Killa Grilla, about making these.
Would anyone else here be interested in getting one? I figure to spend the extra money and have a grate for life. I don't own one yet as all my grates are in good shape. But 2 of my 3 Outriders are in dire need of a replacement. I've seen the posts regarding these and figured this was the way to go.
Thanks

Just bought a new grate from Weber for $22.34.  If SS was an option a couple weeks ago I would have likely waited...

Is this grate potentially the same size as the lower grate for the 18.5" WSM? That could create a big market for it. According to my invoice the Outrider cooking grate is 17.88".

I thought Weber discontinued the grates?  I was able to buy a couple from another seller.
Saving them for a rainy day.
The original grates are not very good. Comparable to a cheap SJ grate.
A SS option would be fantastic.

And for those who don't already know, the JJ grate does not fir in a WSM..  8)

Depending on the price I would be in for 1-2 SS SJP grates.

@Heyjude

They are still available as part number 66913 (charcoal grate is also available 65 949).  That being said I agree that they aren't the best quality. Depending on the price I might pick up a SS as well.

Thanks for the info on the WSM grate.  I was hoping there would be crossover.

I think a flip up grate on one side would be sensible for using baskets and not having to remove the food and grate. What do you Fellas think?
