    As other had stated a stainless steel cooking grate is pretty much the only thing this grill could of came with to make it better. I've found that propane assist super handy. Almost never use my charcoal chimminy.

    Brian, nice score you're going to love it.
    If you get tired of replacing the little gas bottles you can get a Q adapter hose that will allow you to use a standard 20# tank, much cheaper way to go. I'm on year four with the same tank. If you don't move it around a lot it's the best way to go.

    You're welcome Brian. Personally, I think it's kind of funny as that color isn't what comes to mind when I hear "red brick"

    Rich thanks for the info I do need to move it around as its stored under my deck which has a corrugated roof so its dry I just need to move it about 15' to use it so I assume it would need to disconnect it then reconnected when you move it. I actually think your solution is better as I have 3 tanks as I have a 1000 also 2 tanks always filled don't want to be one of those people hey I have a cookout just ran out of gas my wife would kill me by the way.

    I would never need it to be portable since it is staying in the same spot not like I am using it at a camp site or something. Looks like my home depot has the 1 pound 2 pack for under 7 bucks however my local Ace fills a 20 pound which is really 15 for under 12 bucks. Your idea sounds like a no brainier if I did my math correctly please not my strong suit. But should be around $52 bucks for 15 pounds of propane with the 2 pack. $25 bucks for that attachment and 12 bucks for the 15 pound propane tank refill. So around $37.00 for the setup with the 20 pound tank with the added benefit if I run out of propane with the performer I just switch one of my tanks or the other way around.
