It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

raising the grid

What am I gonna need? I've been reading some on the ceramicgrillstore site and im kinda leaning towards the PSwoo2 so I can still use the platesetter, but is that going to give you the option to raise it above the felt line or just flush with it? What are the pros and cons of each of these products?

  • I have the Adjustable Rig from CGS.  It can go much above the felt line which I like very much.  Great product!

    Have two adj rigs and not looking back. I suggest you call Tom by phone Thursday and he will ask a little about your cooking and make a suggestion. Tom is a good guy.

    I have a PSWOO2 and love it. CGS has made a grill extender in the past but currently is not. Tom said they will likely restart in the future. I have made a DIY second tier that gets me high in the dome. I'll go look for a previous pix and send you the link

    http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/comment/1299940/#Comment_1299940 The photo is about half way down. I chose to keep my platesetter and go with the woo rather than the AR and buy all new. Having said that anything you get from CGS will be high quality and worth the $. As soon as they make the rig extender again my DIY rig is history

    Thanks everyone for the advice, I really hate that I bought a platesetter and had a feeling I would lean towards the AR. Called Tom, great guy,he said I should go for the R&B Oval Combo so i ordered one of those. Cant wait to try it out and show the wife why i had to order it lol. Next on the list is a thermapen, but we just bought a house 3 weeks ago so that list is really long!!

    Sure, sell it if you can.  Anything's possible.  Who would buy it?

    I recently got the 2 tier swing rack from Ceramic Grill Works and tried Mickey's recommendation for the spatchcock chicken (raised direct, 400 degrees for a little under an hour). Best (juiciest) chicken I've ever had. That's how I'm doing chicken from now on. Thank you, Mickey.
