Extra Grate for Large

I want to pick up an additional grate to place on over fire bricks set on their side atop the original grate in my large BGE. I know the original grate is 18.25", but was wondering what the best size is to maximize space is considering the slope of the dome.[p]Got some jerky marinading that I am looking forward to trying.[p]Jethro

    <p />Jethro, I use the 18" weber grate that I bought at home depot for an extra grate. It's pretty cheap, I think about $8.00 and fits well. When I do jerky I use a grid extender and some wire racks, I think they are called "Grill Toppers". I put one level raised up off the base of and inverted plate setter, one on the grate sitting on the legs and one on the grid extender. You can do a ton of jerky on a large this way. [p]Also, thanks for the tip on Butch's BBQ sauce. I got some sweet & spicy and pyro sauces, and the super-pyro wing sauce. All were very good. I will be buying more from him in the future. My BGE dealer may even start to carry it. Again thatks for the advice and good luck with the jerky.[p]Chuck <><
