Here is the original grill I bought off of C.L. for $35. It was in decent shape, but for some unknown reason the previous owner painted the kettle flat black:
Here it is after I took it completely apart, steel wooled the kettle, painted the cart, replaced all nuts, bolts, and screws with stainless steel, cleaned and seasoned the searing grate, etc.
The searing grate that came with it is worth the price I paid for the whole unit. It is a rectangular piece that sits inside of the circular grate. The sides of the grate lift so you can add more fuel while cooking. In addition to this grate, I purchase a new SS cooking grate as well for fish, etc.
The old and the new:
I have $35 into the grill purchase, $22 in new stainless hardware (I splurged), and a new hinged, stainless steel cooking grate (weber part number 3070784) for $30. Still need to buy a cover and then I am off and cooking!
