A: No, the hinged grate is separate. However, they do have packaged deals that will include the grate. I recommend the grate. However, the ash catch plate is highly recommended. Then, there is their skewers and next get the turkey hanger; turkeys come out amazing! I've done two turkeys at once before; they fit and cooked beautifully. Once you get the hinged gate you'll end up ditching the standard gate, because it allows more cooking options.
A: This is a defect for sure.
