Weber kettles are amazing and the Weber Smokey Mountain bullet smokers are, dollar for dollar, the absolute best smokers available.
These great grills and smokers deserve equally amazing internal components. Here are a few options that I have made available through my Quality Grill Parts product line on Amazon.
For 22.5 inch Kettles and Smokers
304 stainless steel lower cooking grate for the 18.5 WSM: 17 inch diameter. [Currently not in stock. Anticipate availability in January, 2018]
For 26.75 inch Kettles
I am not currently making parts for the 26.75 kettles because I do not know if enough people actually want them. If you want me to make grates (or other parts) for the vintage or the current version of this grill then enter your name in the Sign Up box below.
I typically have to order 500 grates at a time. If enough people sign up for the 26.75 grates then I will get them made. I do not have a final price on these grates but suspect that a hinged cooking grate from 304 stainless steel will cost about $75.
Right now there are 6 people signed up. (12/7/16)
I will keep this number updated weekly (?) as people sign up.
