Is my gas grill toast? How much rust is too
much? Can I still use this without blowing up my face?

While de-wintering my grill (6-year-old BBQ Grill Ware) I found that one of the burners had cracked. While trying to install a replacement, I found that almost the entire inner workings of the grill are rusted out. The 2 remaining burners appear intact, but the ends are rusted. All screws and bolts are shot, and even the base of the legs are crumbling.
Online reviews of this model show lots of rust problems, but I'm wondering when it's time to pull the plug? I never could get the new burner installed, since I can no longer take apart the grill to get to the connector.
Anyone have a similar issue? How can I tell when it is no longer safe to use? How long will this kluge work?
PS: A previous post
had suggestions for replacement grills...
