    Default rebuilding grill

    My grill is 4 years old, teh grates are in decent shape, but the triangle shapped arches that go over the burners are burnt up...can someone recommend how to go about replacing these things? Brands, where to get whatever...first time doing this, and I love my grill and the functioning of it is sound.

    Thanks and have a good one.

    Lowes and Home Depot both stock that type of thing but good luck finding an exact match. My experience is that you can finds parts for a grill for about two years then they quit making the exact model part you need.

    What he said. I've been down that road before, and finding a "close enough" match can be difficult, much less getting the exact fit.

    I think it depends on the grill. If its a cheapy then a lot of the parts are pretty much the same year after year. If its an expensive one you should be able to get the parts from the manufacturer. Take everything with you that you want to replace when you go to Lowes.

    Yup. Depends on the grill.

    I just replaced the grates in my 8 year old grill last year with factory parts from Lowe's.

    Those drip things can be replaced with generic ones that are a lot cheaper. I've replaced those twice now. Even the stainless ones will rust and burn up in no time.

    Look up your grill online at the manufacturer if possible. They'll give you the part numbers specific for your grill, which is the way that they are listed at Lowe's as well.

    As stated before me, the generic replacement deflectors are easily available (Wal-Mart, Lowes.....). But I would add, though, that you should pre-heat the thing before cooking over it to get rid of any oil or coating.
