If they need replaced, you'll end up spending as much for the replacement grates and grill as it would cost to buy new.
^^^ that's what I was trying to say. The pic to me looks like they've spray painted a black one. So, the first question is: Did they use a very high temp spray paint? If not, they've ruined it (IMHO). Then there's the grates thing. For me, I'd rather pay $70-$90 and get a brand spankin' new one than drive across town to pick up a nasty need-to-be-rebuilt one. IMHO. By the way, I have 2 of them; they're very versatile. I love 'em, but I'd rather you save a few dollars and wait to get one new or in great shape than get something in this condition and not be very happy...
Hance - Lake Dogs Cooking Team - MiM/MBN/GBA CBJ and comp cook
Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
