If it was under waranty I would definately let Hitzer buy me a new frame. If it was not under waranty, I would use my new grider to grind the welds and get the lip off, then go to a welder preferably a decent hobby welder (free or cheap) and have him tack a new one on. I'll do it for you if you want to bring it to Whippleville.
Thanks Grizzly--I'll bring it with me next time I'm going to Whippleville
I have a call in to my dealer but haven't heard back yet. I believe the warranty period is five (5) years, but only on components Hitzer manufactures. Exclusions include castings such as grates themselves, cast fill door, etc and even gaskets. But they almost certainly make the grate frame, so that shouldn't be excluded.

Thanks for the advice. At least I'll have a good tool for cutting firebrick.
