I have a heritage grill. Is it possible to get a new stainless steel drip pan to replace my aluminum one that is starting to break up. I see in the parts listing they still call it aluminum.

Wayne,
If your drip pan is corroding, it was not aluminum. The original Heritage & other non-stainless grills had a steel drip pan with an aluminum coating on the inside. That coating could wear away.
I do know that all drip pans are now aluminum. Stainless is no longer used as it tended to "hot-spot".

So I just had it backwards, I need to buy an aluminum drip pan to replace my stainless one. I will check with my local dealer to see how much he wants for one, if it is more than the one here on the site, I will order it from here. Thanks

wayne,
If you actually have the first generation Heritage, model number BH421SG5, your drip pan was regular mild steel, not stainless steel. It had an aluminum coating inside to retard rusting.
Only stainless steel grill models had stainless steel drip pans in the past.
This is probably more than you need to know, but I thought it might help someone else.

I bought my Holland in 1993. I have replaced everything but the stand, drip pan and the smoke stacks. My old drip pan is stainless, I think. Anyway I don't like the new pan. I will be switching back to the old pan. I use nat gas. I am thinking about going up a notch on the jet from 55 to whatever. Just had shrimp on the grill for supper. Uhmm Good......
