Tightwad needs to replace dead built-in bbq?
We moved into a new house that has a bricked in natural gas grill. I opened it the other day and it imploded on itself, raising a fine rusty dustcloud. There is no salvaging it. I am left with a 37"W x 19-3/4"deep hole (a seemingly odd size) in a nicely bricked island. I can't come to grips with $1000.00 bbq's. What are my other options? Can I buy one with a cart and mount it in my island? Do I put in a charcoal grill and pretend I am a purist? Can I have burners and a grill installed right in the island, or do i need to use a "built-in" factory made unit. I looked,but I could not find the manufacturers name on the old grill, and have a sneaking suspicion it was a portable grill bolted to angle bar.The island was built in 1979.What to do?
