Can anyone recommend a Cast Iron Grid for the XL, I'm leaning towards the CrayCort!
Any other opinions?

    FlyingTivo the quality from them is impressive and they are very well desisned! It makes it easy for adding coals or wood chunks! You just have to lift one section to do so!

    I have 2 craycorts and highly recommend them. The only downside is if you don't keep them seasoned or oiled, they will rust. Other than that, they are awesome and Rolf (the owner) has excellent customer service.

    I have an 18" for use with the spider.  Got it off Amazon and it works fine.  I haven't shopped for one big enough to use in lieu of the main grate.

    Ragtop, which one did you get off amazon?  I'm trying to figure out the best lower cost option...

    Or you can use it as a sear grate using a spider to drop the grid down closer to the fire...
