Grate area is 240 sq". It comes with 8 hooks for hanging but at times I foil my pizza stone and place a can of beer inside the birds and use the grate level. The pizza stone is 18". I've never actually measured the grate. A 240 sq" circle would have a radius approaching 8.8+ so D=2r so approx 18" grate.
