I believe he means is the expanded metal standing off the bottom of the charcoal grate, not the charcoal grate off the bottom of the ash catcher. In this instance, the answer is no. If you look closely you can see the welds between the expanded metal and the grate. It does look a little bit like it from the angle though. If this is not what you meant, then woops
