Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
Here are some of our new favorite non-beef burgers: Italian Turkey Burger, Grilled Tuna Burger and Goat Cheese Portobello Burger. You’ll want to perfect these before football season starts up in a few weeks! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

CGW Small Two-Tier

I hope everyone has had a great Fourth of July and the eggs are cooking up delicious meals for friends and family!

My birthday is the 2nd of July and being that the new Ceramic Grill Works Two-tier Swing Rack is out for the small egg. We did a big cookout for my birthday and was happy to see the swing rack when it came time for presents!

I was slammed with work on monday, but on my birthday I took my small over to a friends and had the inaugural cook! This this is really nice, heavy duty and works perfectly! Adding a second level to the little egg is so nice.

So I decided to break it in with some sliders and corn on the cob with some Pineapple Head (which is amazing if you haven't tried it)

Then I had a tri-tip and threw some shredded cheese on the sliders.

The crust I was getting with the carbon steel grates was great on the tri-tip. It might have been my best one yet!

Everything turned out really good and it was a fun birthday. With the addition of the CGW two-tier my small egg will be getting even more use at home as well as my traveling buddy! 

Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend everyone!

  • It all looks good.  Happy (belated) birthday.  PS.  We've really enjoyed the rubs you sent.  SWMBO has forbidden me from opening the BBQ sauces until we use up a few of the many open and half used bottles in the fridge.

    Thank you @SWVABeanCounter I'm glad you like them. You can usually find 2 of the 3 Head Country bottles in our fridge at any given time. 

    @R2Egg2Q Thank you it has been a fun week! I could use it if I cut off the handles, I think I might custom order a slightly shorter woo sometime without handles. But for steaks and burgers cooking right by the fire is fine for now. 

    @sancho65 I know it was designed to work with the small platesetter but I do not have one, so I can't show you a picture of it. You might have to get the adjustible kit which has a floating collar to set it up any height you choose. Thank you! 

    I will do a bigger post showing how great it is. I just snapped some pics on my birthday cook and wanted to share.

    I just love how much more room the Swing Rack gives the small egg. I just made some simple chicken breasts last night and could move the chicken around the hot spots, when before I just had to deal with it. My new eggcessory might just be my favorite!

    I think this post just sold me on the swing rack for my small...

    Does anyone know how much room is left when you install the plate setter? Or better yet, have pics with it?  :)

    I'm at work now, but I can snap a photo tonight unless somebody else posts one first.

    @jtippers I don't have a platesetter but it does work with it. The top tier is adjustable so depending on the size of meat on the bottom rack you have a good amount of room for the top. I did relocate the thermometer to the outside of the egg with a wine cork, but it isn't necessary.

    I think it is a great eggcessory for the smaller eggs since space is the only downfall. I highly recommend it.

  • As promised @jtippers , here are pictures of my small 2 tier swing rack.  Here it is resting on the fire ring.

    Here it is sitting on the plate setter. 

    image

    The standard shaft is bottomed out on the plate setter. 

    image

    The top rack is too high to close the dome by the width of a wrench.  The dome thermo was removed first. 

    image

    Looking through the top vent.  Remember the dome doesn't close.  No purpose for the last two pictures, just liked them.

    To use the 2 Tier Swing Rack on the small with the plate setter, you need the shaft kit.  Otherwise the dome doesn't close.  I haven't played with this toy very much yet, so I was surprised to learn this.  I'm ordering the shaft kit tonight.  I hope this was helpful.
