Does anyone know this grill?

Saw this on Nemo Arms' instagram and wanted to see if anyone knew whether this was a production grill or custom?

It looks like a Saudi style grille.
I've also seen people make their own using heavy gauge screen used to make chicken coops and rabbit hutches.

Jeff: didn't you try to make something like that out of an old Lightweight grille?

There closest thing to this that I have seen at the moment...is from Kahn in the UK..though I could swear that I saw something more basic somewhere? Twisted and a few others use a heritage style grill which whilst similar is punched steel rather than woven mesh. Indeed , not rocket science to modify a BBQ to fit. Tim

Appears to be the same grill as on mine, which, as mentioned above, I believe is an old Rovers North stainless steel grill.

If it's the one put together with hot glue then I had one.

There was a welded version and a glued version, but it does look like our old grille.

Do you recall what retail was on this? I have one I'd be willing to part with. It's the glued version and the glue has failed so whomever would need to attach the grille to the stainless surround. I've always liked this grille but it's not going to work with my 8274.

I'm actually working on a design that is very similar right now. It will be aluminum mesh very similar in appearance to this one. Anyone interested can PM me for more info.

Heritage Grill

I'm thinking something along these lines.
