I need a replacement water pan and grates for my 18" WS

It's about time to replace my crusty water pan and my grates could use a replacement. Weber quoted me about 25 bucks for the water pan, seems kinda high. Do you guys have any suggestions for where else I can find these parts?

Thanks.

Replacement grates can be purchased at Home Depot. Not sure about the water pan.

How about making the Piedmont pan?

Still need to line with foil, but no more water mess. I ordered the two charcoal pans from Pro Bass - I think.

You can also do it with one Brinkmann pan and the original WSM pan. I did that before my WSM pan had a chance to get really grungy, using a leftover pan from a Brinkmann that I had years ago. No more worries about running out of water (and having the temperature run out of control) in the middle of a long cook.

Cut up old oven racks or fridge shelves

Them 70's Cadillac hubcaps work best for water pans
(plus they are stainless...so they never need replacing again!)
