Grill Mount

You have the right idea in that the lever arm of the grill is like the handle of a claw hammer when removing a nail and you have to have something substantial holding on the inside. Having a panel to work with on your rig gave you a good option and easy access to the back. Nice job.

mike t., now you have to keep watch on bending the flimsy door or loosening the door hinge/frame.

That's even without someone loosing there balance and reaching for the table for support (didn't happen yet but it could) In this world were everyone is a lawyer or has a phone I find it hard to believe that FR would take that kind of risk.
My grill rail seems fine but after reading your post I'm going to check mine out, and add a backing plate if needed. I really like the barbecue and table supplied with my rig, did 18 cheese burgers 2 weeks ago at a gathering.

Fortunately I was able to grab my fire pit gloves as it started to pull away, but as it tipped the accumulated grease caught fire. Basically had to balance the bottom of the grill with one gloved hand, remove the other glove to turn off the grill with the other and then pull the quick connect.
