    Hello. I have a bbq which is half grill and half hotplate. Looking to get a second hotplate and get rid of the grill part but cant find a hot plate that'll fit.

    The current size of the grill is 460mm x 220 mm. Same as the hotplate. A maximum of 470 mm by 450 mm hole exists.

    The only plate I can find would result in a loss of 5 cm. That's alot of realestate on a small bbq.

    Surely I don't need to to just buy a new bbq...

    Has anyone got a custom stainless steel plate cut and bent to a custom shape?

    It would probably be cheaper to buy a new flat plate bbq than get a custom stainless plate cut and folded. Or just gumtree it.

    Gidday blued.
    I recently had cause to replace some consumable items from my bbq. I was surprised at the prices charged by the specialty bbq stores. I went to Bunnings and they had a reasonable range of products at very reasonable prices. In regards to plates, grills, flame tamers, if you have access to a angle grinder, you can cut down any of these items quite easily to fit your bbq thereby maximising your bbq real estate.

    I'm thinking that but seems so wasteful.

    Thanks. I did check out the range at Bunnings. I'll give them another look.
