Yes, I have one, and I had to order a grate from Weber for it. They still had them, as of a couple months ago. I don't know if they still make the grates, or if they are just selling what they have in stock till it is gone.

The new "Jumbo Joe," as it is now labeled, is uses a standard 18.5 inch grate.
