    I had Googled and did not find the replacement cast iron grate.  This is the older model, not one made by Char Broil.

    Aeroforce, didn't take it as you trying to be a SA.  I did go back and try another search parameter & found a site.  I contacted them & will be taking a pic of the cast iron grate & sending it, along with the dimensions.  They think they maybe able to match it up.  I will try to remember to post the results on here.

    Not really.  The cross members are kinda rectangular and the grates are square.  Mine also doesn't have the BBQ Stamp.

    I believe the grill is from when New Braunfels was it own company and used the heavy gauge steel.  Originally it was a grayish color and has the offset firebox.  I got it from a yardsale for $50, cleaned it up, re-seasoned the grates, repainted it silver & black and have been having a blast with it for about 3 or 4 years now.

    Yes, these are the originals.  The grill has the heavy gauge metal, unlike the similar grills that you can find at Academy today.
