Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

"mock" turbo grate

Ok, I liked the idea of the Hi-Que turbo grate instead of the cast iron plate that comes with the egg, but had to start putting a limit on accessories. So I broke out my (cough, cough) weber smokey joe (the small portable one), and the charcoal grate in there is the same diameter. I threw it in there, and lighting for me now is a breeze by putting the oil soaked paper towels in the bottom through the ash door, and turning the whole egg into a chimney starter. :)
I will say that by looking at pics, the Hi-que one looks like thicker diameter steel, and will last longer. I will be getting one from them also so I can still use my smokey joe for travel.But it was nice to try before I buy without spending more money.

All to get cheaper brisket!
