Actual grill body and base is constructed from 5052-H32 aluminum. 5052-H32 is actually more expensive than 304 stainless steel.

An example is the construction of outboard boat engines that are used in salt water and automotive wheels. They are usually made from aluminum. The appearance of 5052-H32 aluminum is very similar to stainless steel. The thickness of this aluminum is 1/8th of an inch thick, which is much thicker than any stainless steel. The end caps are welded into the body. It is built for years of outdoor use. The aluminum cleans very easily with WD-40 and a soft cloth.
