We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers
for a backyard grill out, some brats
before a baseball game or searing a steak
for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

large quantity of food -- long
We are going to be doing a bunch of food for family and friends next weekend, so I'm trying to work out something for all the food. Hows this look?[p]
<--new top grate
| | <--fire bricks
<--normal grill level
| | <--fire ring
<--grate with pizza stone on it(like JSLOT uses)
| | <--lowest portion of firebox(ashes collect here)[p] We will be feeding 10 adults and 12 kids. The adults want ribs and the kids like hotdogs and hamburgers. Sides were just going to be baked potatoes and corn on the cob. Some type of macarroni/pasta salad as well. The kids will probably get french fries. I figure the corn and potatoes could go on the normal grill level and the ribs on the upper. Dogs and burgers will be cooked after other food of course. The ribs should fit if I'm correct, because many people put firebricks on the normal level and raise the cooking grid up(Tim M's photo's).
Can anybody think of a reason why this setup might not work? Maybe even have a better way of doing this cookout. It has to be completely cooked on the Egg(except the salads) as per the family's request.This will be my first time for this size a group. Wifes side only, doesn't even include my side of the family(there's 9 on my side). If this goes well we will probably have both families over for Thanksgiving and X-mas.[p] Thanks
Brad[p]P.S. I gave that Guinness a try after the posts talking about it. Considering the fact that I don't like beer(LOVE long island ice tea's though) I was suprised when I drank the entire 4 pack. I'm sure I'll be buying it again.
