We wish we could turn back the hands of time and go back to a few years ago when Freedom Grill was still manufacturing the Freedom Grill FG-50. Unfortunately for tailgaters, the Freedom Grill FG-50 was turned into the Margaritaville Tailgating Grill in 2009 and that company has chosen to cease manufacturing those grills for the foreseeable fututre. (We wrote all about it last spring in the Margaritaville Tailgating Grill Eulogy.)
There are still a few Margaritaville Grills for sale floating around out there on the internet but just based on basic supply and demand, the prices being asked for these few remaining grills are upwards of an arm and a leg and maybe a first born child.
Because of this turn of events, those who were lucky enough to get an FG-50 or a Margaritaville Grill in the past have been searching for replacement parts for their grills. Nothing last forever especially a grill when put through the rigors of multiple tailgating seasons. Sometimes things wear out or break and because these grills are so scarce, many tailgaters are looking to repair and replace the broken parts rather than buy a new grill. As a result of us discussing the Freedom Grill and the Margaritaville Grill on this tailgating blog for years, we tend to come up a lot on Google and other search engine results when people are looking for information on these grills. Lately we have been getting a number of emails from people asking us where they can buy replacement parts for their grills. The simple answer to those questions is, “we have a very limited supply of replacement parts that we would be willing to part with them”.
The reason why we have some of the parts that fit the Freedom Grill FG-50 and the Margaritaville Tailgating Grill is because for a few years we would customize these grills to specific teams colors and logo emblems. Over the course of doing these custom jobs, we somehow ended up with left over parts that were removed from grills that were either damaged, scratched or for whatever reason, not suitable for customization. So the parts that were salvaged from these grills were still working perfectly but were attached to a grill that was not-so-perfect.
With all of that said, we have a number of spare parts that we are not making available if some of those FG-50 and Margaritaville Grill owners out there are in need of some replacement parts. Some of the replacement parts we have available are: temperature gauges for the grill lid, side panels, tilt out condiment trays, side handles, propane regulators, legs, fold out tables, grill grates, grease vaporizers, burners and front lid handles. We even have the patented swing arms that made these grills so popular in that it transports the grill on the rear of your car via the 2″ tow hitch and swings away from your vehicle when in use.
If you are in need of replacement parts, please use the Contact form and send us an email. In your email, please tell us what part you are in need of replacing and we will see if we have something that can help. Even if you don’t know the correct name of the part you need, describe it the best you can and we will try and figure it out what exactly it is that you need. Based on what parts you need and shipping, we will then offer you a price quote on what you can expect to pay for the parts and shipping. Please include your zip code in your email so we can best estimate the shipping costs to your specific location.
As mentioned above, we have a very small and limited supply of these replacement parts. Some parts we only have one of a quantity while others we have three or four. It just all depends on what parts you may need and if we happen to have one.
