It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Fire Grate Help

edited 5:11AM in EggHead Forum
My fire grate broke into three pieces yesterday. Since I want to grill some chops tonight, I would like to stop at the hardware store on the way home and buy a drain grate of some sort that will work until I can get the replacement. Can someone share with me the diameter of the grate so I can save a trip home?

Thanks

    I know the large is 9 inches...

    I am looking for the other sizes as well. I dont remember if you specified the size or not...

    for years I used an 11" cast iron floor drain. It gave me better air flow from underneath...kinda like ramming more air in that Vette of yours! :laugh:

    You mean bigger is really better?

    I could be satisfied with 9 inches, but if I can get 11, I'll go for it!

    Thanks for the help!

    By the way, 'vette's for sale, both the 2004 and 72 LT-1. Keeping the 64.

    LOL - yes it rides higher in the fire box and therefore has more surface full of air holes, yet with a minimal infringement of space.
