CI Skillet size for a MBGE?

Hey, I have decided it's time to get a CI skillet for my MBGE for reverse sears, I'm planning on getting one with a handle and then cutting it off - just looking for suggestions on what size you folks would recommend for a MBGE.

  • probably nothing larger than a 12 inch to allow plenty of airflow around it.

  • You might consider a bail handled griddle..I just got a 12" Wagner that missing the bail handle off eBay for my Small.  It was considerably cheaper than a skillet.

    Bought a 12 inch Lodge CI and clipped the handle off with my grinder and smoothed the edges. Cured it and good to go!

    I only have a MBGE. 12" may work with a clipped handle, depends on what you are doing. Have two 10" skillets, both fit very well and the handle makes for easy one hand moving around. I'd try a 10" and if it seems to small for what you are cooking, pick up a 12" or a 14" and remove the handles.

    Thanks @Skiddymarker - I'm really just going to be using it for searing steaks, does that help?

  • @Helmet, When reverse searing steaks, I use either the CI grid on the fire ring or a CI pan on a gasser side burner. I can't get a pan sear in the egg to work the way I like it but find the gasser works much better. I'm sure whatever you get will be fine.

    I really like the look of that. I wish it was smaller!
