    18 WSM with only one cooking grate?

    I have a used 18” WSM that I got for free. I noticed that it has only one cooking grate. Were the older models like this or is the second grate missing?

    Some more details: it has a wooden handle, no temp gauge.

    I found the date code on the dome damper. It looks like the letter L. I guess this means that it was made in 1989? Wow, that is the year I graduated from college! It's still in great shape today. Just a little rust on the cooking grate.

    you could search Weber grill schematics on their site to see if it came with a second grate. I would think it did but I’m not an expert.

    I am sure it came with an upper and lower grate. Most folks only use the lower when they run out of room on top.
    It was probably just misplaced sometime down the road.

    Looks like you are correct. It did come with a second grate.
