Default Cast iron grate for 22" kettle?

I'm looking for a cast iron grate that will fit a 22" Weber Kettle. Anybody have a source?

I saw on another forum that someone put the cast iron grate from his Weber Q on top of the existing grate in order to get some good grill marks on the meat.
I can give you the link in a PM if you want it.

Don't know if this is of any help for what you are looking for, but thought I would mention it.

BGE grates would work sitting on the existing grate also. But I don't think you'll find any that fit. If you could, I think alot of people on here would already have them.

I've already looked there, but I appreciate the effort!

Williams Sonoma had them, made specially for 22'' (RED)Weber Grill and I used them for years.. They are wrought iron and need seasoning each time.. I saved beef fat eg Brisket or steak... and seasoned them and it gave super grill marks and cooked great each time... lost track and got involved in other grills ... wow I miss that grilling experience...

Yours in BBQ,

Cliff

BTW, I think I worked a deal for them to sponsor me this year.

Or, you could get some of the square grates. I think RTD uses one in an egg.

Good idea but, welding to cast iron is a tricky thing.

You read my mind. My welding skills are ugly.

Welding is not my thing either. That's why I didn't even know that.
