@ Wombler , if you did get a new grill congrats.
I have to ask if the rest of the old grill was in OK condition ?
If it was then why not just replace the burner ?
Here in the US you can buy a couple of sizes of universal burners at Walmart.[/QUOTE]
Marloyd knows what’s what.
Yeah I had a CharBroil barbecue that’s about 16 years old.
CharBroil used to have a parts centre somewhere in England but they pulled out of the UK market years ago and I can’t get parts for it here anymore.
About three years ago the vapouriser bar went so I checked it out online and the part cost $6 in the US but the cheapest anywhere would ship it here for was $74 and believe me I looked everywhere.
Luckily enough my brother got me the part when he was on holiday in the US.
The burners went on it last weekend, it already needed a new grill, a new warming rack and the the ignition system had packed in ages ago.
So enough is enough and I reckoned it was time to bite the bullet and get a new one that I can actually get the parts for.
I went for this one which is bigger than we had before but probably still relatively small by American standards.
Got a good deal on it too, purely by chance, as I went into a local DIY store just to see what it looked like in the flesh and they not only had it on offer but they also had a one day 20% off everything sale so I got it Â£50 cheaper than the cheapest price I’d seen online!
