Yeah, but how much does it cost in fuel and time to drive to the store to
pick up just one bolt?  Especially at 5:55 on Sunday, when the store closes
at 6.  If they even have the right size in stock.

And the BBQ grille will never know the difference.  I could put a mil-spec
titanium bolt in there, and it would grill just the same.
