<p />Wow, I guess my little picture created some interest. When Nature Boy posted about the grid extender, I couldn't resist. BGE sent that to me to play with an critique for them. I loved it and said so, I should have said it to more people there I guess. I just spoke to BGE and asked if that new extender was available - it is I am told but not all dealers will have it (most don't follow the forum and don't know about it I guess). Jewel told me that it is available and they they were going to not produce anymore because they had not heard many pro comments about it. I thought it was still a secret so I never mentioned it --- But I sure use it.
Its great for doing indirect and then direct cooking. In other words, since the top will flip up on either side, it makes it really easy to go from a indirect cook to an direct cook - just lift the side, slide in a drip pan, lower the side. The original extender must be picked up to do that. Jewel had never heard that before and they are going to keep it available if it starts selling (which it will when you folks get one and see how handy it is. Since it folds up, it will more easily fit into a dishwasher (I have never tried that).[p]BGE suggests you check the local dealers - if not call BGE 1-888-929-3447[p]Tell them Tim says hi[p]Tim
