Cutting Metal On BBQ

I have a gas BBQ grill that is slightly large for my space, so I would like to remove an attached platform to the side of the grilling surface. The problem is, the metal support brace is a single piece which runs the length of the grill and attached platform.  What tool would be appropriate for cutting that brace?  It is a single piece of metal which bends at a right angle and is probably 1/16 of an inch thick.

Let's try that again.

The cheapest, simplest tool would be a good old hacksaw with about18 tooth per inch blade.  It will take a little effort but not more than five minutes.

If you want to go the power tool route (or want an excuse to buy a power tool).  You could use a reciprocating saw or a grinder with a cut off wheel.  Especially with a grinder, eye protection is a must.  Hearing protection is a good idea too.
