I was excited when I found that site. Holy crap its expensive though. Seems like a better option for high end grills not $300 econoboxes.

I'd go with cast, personally, as long as you keep up with their maintenance and don't let them rust out. But then again, the rust can easily be removed if they ever get that bad.

I’m switching to stainless steel this fall and throwing out my original cast that came with our Weber. Stainless seems to heat up better, a little more even and easier to clean.

The higher end Weber’s have stainless so why not mine ha.

Grill grates is nice but probably unnecessary. I can get new SS grates, SS flavorizor bars, and gas piping and essentially make the grill like new for the same price as grill grates.

I had the same choice and picked the stainless steel for the cost/quality factors. The stainless lasts longer than cast, is easier to maintain and isn't pricey.
