Default BWS w/Expanded Metal Grates?

I like the BWS smokers (Party and Fatboy) very much but I am not a fan of the grates. Is it possible to get expanded metal grates for them. Does that even make sense for those smokers? I wish my WSMs had expanded metal too.

This company is showing what looks like a party with expanded grates on a page selling a commercial fire pan. Maybe give em a call.

Go for it, I think you will be pleased with the outcome. We usually use 3/4" or 1" angle for the frame on larger grates but recently made a set for my son's cooker approximately 26"X22" and used 1/2" square tubing for the frame; they are plenty strong. The expanded metal also seasons up great.

Might be wrong, but aren't those the old style grates. They also show a Gater with the expanded grates. Gater does not come with expanded grates these days. Never seen them as an option.
