Cooked a spatchock and veggies tonight, turned out awesome. I swear I like the egg more every time I use it.

    And it will only get better. Nice beer can raised grid.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    I tried to find some stainless steel bolts this evening to make a set up for raised direct but couldn't find any. I figured the cans could get me through until I did find some. This was my first raised direct cook. My other spatchcocks have been indirect. I like this way so I can put the vegetables under the chicken.

    Looks nice. Like the veggie drip pan. 
    Awhile ago grand kids complained about the rub used, so we left one side "naked". Since then we usually rub with two different rubs, variety is good.

  • This looks amazing! I am a brand new egg owner, just put her together do you do the beer can raised rack? What does the drip pan sit on?

    All I done was got another grill rack from Lowes, put the cans on top of my regular rack and then the new rack on top of the cans, so then the pan just sat on the lower rack. I plan on doing what this link says just so it will be more convenient.

    Hey @BulldogNation glad to have you on board, finally. How long did it take you to get your Egg once you asked me about it? :D If you only have one grate right now, you can rest the beer cans on the edge of the fire ring and sit it on top of that. You don't need a drip pan when doing raised direct, although some people use one because the fat dripping on teh fire can make it too smokey for some.

    @awm, I'd be surprised if you couldn't find SS hardware at either Home Depot or Lowes.

    Ask for them, maybe a sales person can help you.
