Changing the Grill plate cover back to like new again

If your going to be Frugal, do it with all things :o)...New Grills today cost two arms and half a leg ...so whenever possible save where you can...When it's time for a new Grill I want a lot of features that would cost a whole body these days..sooo do the next best thing...This grill has served us well and we do a lot of cooking outside on it.. it has a side grill that I fry fish outside and I can get a very small pig inside if I wanted, but for now Cecil just replaced a worn out plate and it's like new again...The fire will be even and I can get it back to low again :o)...$25. is better than $250. for now..just took a little time and effort.
After spending the morning cleaning and getting the old grime off, and letting the wind blow some fresh air into it ..it's as good as new :o) and it smells good too. Cecil put a lot of effort into it..I gave him some strawberries and cream for a reward :o)...I ate some too so he wouldn't feel bad :o)....Now we are ready for those favorite grill items,especially Kielbasa and hot dogs..We even have gas in the tank :o) We are ready.

Ours is still covered too, but we can't wait for the grilling season to begin. It's a big part of our summer fun!

Cecil did a great job fixing your grill! We always keep a grill out on the porch all year long. We haven't used a gas grill for many years now. We use charcoal or wood.

Annie's granny, it's cold here this morning, but yesterday was warm and a good working day for cleaning and airing the grill.

Jody, We keep our grill covered at all times (except when in use) it saves it from a lot of bad weather, but also hand for a quick "fish fry" in winter. it stays on the Patio. it's our summer fun too :o)

Robin, Cecil did do a good job WITHOUT my supervision :o) I didn't feel good so I had to keep my mouth shut :o)..I think we can convet this grill to use lava rocks also but I've never tried it. I barely manage to turn on the gas :o)
