Hi...I am brand new to Egging. Have done plank salmon, smoked meat loaf , steaks, chicken pieces and pizza so far with great results. Other than indirect with platesetter feet up , I do not have and have not used a raised grid , but have read a lot about them. Are they necessary and if so for what uses and purposes. I bought the folding grid extender...will that serve the same purpose. If not, which set up is recommended? Thanks for your help.

  • Not necessary but is more gentle on delicate meats like chicken and fish. Lot's of guys use it for almost everything, I use it for almost nothing!

    The folding grid extender works just fine if that is what you have

    I will be getting a two level extended grill when I buy my xl to lay more ribs flat. I know their will be some temp variance between the levels(something I never thought about until reading here) I am doing it for the extra space. I know the adjustable rigs are very popular at the ceramic grill store. http://www.ceramicgrillstore.com/

    In looking at ceramic grill store, the PAWoo looked like a good option. I guess adjustable rig gives more space.

    Thanks for your help.

    Easiest thing is to get yourself a couple of bricks, firebicks if you want to be extravagant and set them on the firebox lengthways with the grid on top.
