Mickey's package arrived today via FedEx! It was packaged so securely for it's trip across the country that it took a good half hour to carefully unwrap.

[b]First of Many Cooks Planned for the Mini[/b]

Brie Cheese Topped with Almonds Slices, Blueberries, Fresh Tarragon

Decided to do this for my first Mini cook, since I didnt finish getting it set up until after dinner. It turned out quite excellent! The Mini was up to 400 degrees in less than 10 minutes and used almost no charcoal for the cook. In short, it lived up to it's hype!

    Do the bars on the cooking grate run the entire length of the grate?

    Dan don't know where you have time for the BGE's with the two Minis running around. Hope you like and please keep sending picks. Don't let Big Sister into the carrots.

    Sodiii - let me know if the support bars run the length of the grate.

    I have a mini woo I could spare if you are interested.

    It is for the 10 in grate. It does not have the notches for the grate with the support bars running all the way across the grate.

    Frankie482 - They do run the length of the grate, so I will probably do what Mickey suggests. Unless my mini woo works with this style grate -- I haven't had a chance to try mine out yet, but now plan to take a closer look tomorrow to see if my mini woo has the slots you mentioned. Thanks!

    It looks like my mini woo has the slots mentioned, so I guess I won't have to cut the support bars after all.
