Good to know. I just lit my Kingsford for the first cook in this grill. I was planning on grabbing that grate in the near future. It looked like the grates would be a direct swap, from what I was reading in the manual. I haven't put any meat on the grill yet, but the size makes it exactly what we were wanting for our RV.
