Hat's off to @stlcharcoal

Hey everyone,
I just wanted to thank @stlcharcoal for the great service.  Last week I sent in an e-mail asking about the availability of the replacement fire grate for my Large BGE.  He sent me back a list of his products and I ended up placing an order at 4:00 PM Friday afternoon fully expecting that it wouldn't be taken a look at until Monday.  To my surprise I got a confirmation with a tracking number later that night with and my new grate was waiting for me when I got home after work yesterday.  Talk about fast turnaround!  I can't wait to put it to use!  Thanks @stlcharcoal!

    @mgoblue0484,
    You need to email him through his website. I believe he offers them on ebay but he will quote you a price shipped without the fee mark-up.

    He's very responsive.  I ordered a new gasket and it shipped quickly.

    The Saint Louis Charcoal Company's theory on customer service and order fulfillment:

    Assume all customers are like the owner [me].........demanding and impatient!!!!

    Hahahahahaha.  :))

    BTW, 15 minutes earlier on Friday and you would have gotten that grate Saturday--you JUST missed the mail pickup.  Normally everything goes out same day.

    The grate would also make a good grid. I've seen the BBQ houses in Texas on TV with cooking grids in that style

    I have the same material in the five 24" x 24" cooking racks in my Rebel 23.  They're welded to a frame that slides in and out.  They are terribly heavy with the frame, so I don't think they would work too well in the BGE without a special lifting tool.  With that kind of span, they would be $100+ easy to pay for the material, fabrication, and shipping.  I might have the shop make me one to play with, but I do not think it's something I would mass produce.

    Yes, we make stainless steel fire grates and a few other products.......also a dealer for some items that I personally liked on my BGEs, wanted to help a friend sell, and/or was just too cheap to pay retail for.  Some are in our eBay store (stlcharcoal), others are available by request.  Email me direct for the list if you don't want to pay the full prices on eBay.
