. . .I use them till they literally fall apart . . . .
^ ^ ^ that's what i do^ ^ ^
i have a couple now that need to go out front for bulk
trash pickup day, but i'll probably end up welding a piece
of metal in the bottom of one of them. the other one will
go out for sure. i still have one of those in the box
that i haven't put together. they had some on sale a good
while back that didn't sell because they were purple.
i bought the 3 they still had. i figure for $4.00 each i could
overlook the color and it'll cook as good as an all-black grill.
one thing for sure. you have to clean out a wood or charcoal
grill ASAP and not let the ashes stay in the grate, or they rot
out twice as fast from the lye in the ashes
