Building a better gas grill
Greetings! First post, so be gentle.

inherited a propane grill that, functionally works great. However, the metal frame is deteriorating and is not very attractive. I'm thinking of building a new, simple and cheap frame for the grill. I don't need storage, as all I keep with the grill is the tank. The existing lid is still intact. This grill also has a side burner (for a small pot of beans, etc.) that I'd like to incorporate.

Do y'all have any great ideas on making a functional and cheap frame for this grill? I just need something to cook on when I don't have the time to drag out the smoker (grilling burgers/steaks after a long workday, etc.).

thoughts? better to just buy another cheap-o grill and call it a day?

You could pick up a old gasser on CL with a good frame. Mix & match the best of parts. I built my Frank-In-Weber out of 5 old grills. The one that I got the frame from cost me $7.50 at a yardsale. All the others were free.
