Raised Grill

Does anybody know how to get a raised set up when you only have a single grill?

I am looking for a short term set up (for tonight) until I get something proper.

    I use 1/2 width fire bricks. They fit nicely on top of the fire ring and raise grid to same level as the top of the egg.

    You can use 3, 4 inch bolts and washers. Works great

    In a real pinch you can use aluminum cans :)

    Agree with Capt Frank. Aluminum cans work well in a pinch.

    It seems more stable if you shim between the firebox and ring, rather than ring and grid. Just my 2cents.
