Is the design of the removable center piece the same on both the Hunsaker and the Weber Gourmet grates?  Lots of complaints about the center piece on the Weber grate falling out, and not a whole lot of reviews/info on the hunsaker.

I've always been perplexed by the complaint that the GBS grate center piece falls out for some folks... I've yet to experience this issue and have hundreds of cooks on multiple different grates (Summit, 22's and Smokefire). Outside of trying to move the insert when hot and it dropping I cant see how this would happen. Has anyone here experienced this issue before?? Maybe I'm misunderstanding.

I think they mean when you take the entire grate out and hang it by the handle when accessing the charcoal grate, the center piece will fall out.

Ahh Gotcha... I rarely hang grates so that makes sense.
