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!

Grate Holder group buy!!

Here is a Stainless Steel Grate Holder that is made here in the USA! I recently purchased one of them and after seeing the quality and craftsmanship, I wanted to pass on this information to all of you with permission from its maker, William. The one I currently have is the 1/4" stainless steel version. These holders are made from 304 Stainless Steel. It works great for my 2 tier rack setup from Ceramic Grill Works. Those of you that have that setup know how heavy the bottom rack is, especially the 24" grate for the BGE! I estimate the 24" grate from CGS weighs about 11lbs. I cooked a 8lb Butt on it the other night and use my Grate Holder with out any issues. It lifted out of the egg easily!

There are 3 different version of the Grate Holder:

One is made from 3/16" stainless steel. $20.00

One is made from 1/4" stainless steel.   $25.00

One is made from 1/4" stainless steel, but it is shaped differently (looks like a duck head) as you will see in the picture and has a "heel" at one end for the bigger and heavier lifts. $30.00

All these prices INCLUDE S/H to you! I will NOT handle any $$ from this. You will be in contact with the maker of the grate lifter.

Here is a video showing you how well this grate lifter works

In one of the pictures below you will see he 1/4" thick tool next to the 3/16" thick tool. It is only 1/16" thicker, but it is much stronger and can lift larger grates that may or may not have food on them

Here are some pictures:

Email the maker for questions or orders...
