Tiny V-Rack for Mini?

I'll get these little 3 lb roasts which fit wondrously in the mini..but would them them raised off the rack or not sitting in the pan (9" foil pans fit perfectly). I haven't seen anything that would fit in the mini to raise the meat just a bit off the grill so it doesn't stew in its own juice (quite literally). Anyone come up with anything workable???[p]Thanks...mShark

    You might try one of those inexpensive wire trivets that sit up about half an inch. I've seen them in the $1.00 store. They should fit neatly inside an aluminum pan. [p]I wish I had a mini to go with my large.[p]Spring Chicken

    Spring Chicken,[p]To tell the truth, I use the mini more than the large...particularly when there is just 2 of us. Doesn't even use enough lump to sneeze at and gets up to temp in no time at all. I love that thing. Perfect for fish since you can usually cut it into pieces that fit in those 9" pans also. The wire trivit sounds like a workable thing. I'll see if I can find one![p]Thanks![p]mShark

    MollyShark, I use aluminum foil rolled into logs. They keep the meat outta the juices and they can be formed to fit any pan. It works well for me! Hope this helps.

    I had a 1-1/2"x9" stainless steel ring made for the mini and bought a extra grate from the egg store...Sometimes I use the extra grate on a 8-1/2" pie pan...Works great.

    Here is a picture of the ring and extra grate.
