    Franco,

     

    No matter what you do, keep the production here. I will pay the extra, and i bet that most folks here would as well.  It might be a good subject to run a poll on!

    Scott I was told 1-2 wks, get your order in, at this rate I'll have to place another production run and that will be 4-6 wks easy. So get your order in so I can get yours out on this order I have coming in.

    CC-I have no intentions on going anywhere outside the US. I may shop around country for a better manufacturing cost, but it'll stay here in the states.

    Had my table for a couple of months and love it

    June 11 Posts: 72

    Just got my stainless from Tim (            217-653-0654      ).

    Thanks Tim--the table is awesome.  The counter space and the storage are both excellent.  The extension shelves make the table---large.

    I only used it twice in the cart but we are already in love.

    Dan

    Any one have more pics of searmarks using the swing rack, or better yet anyone used the top grate on a spider in the firebox, pics if you have them please.

     

    Cheers.

  • CGW1CGW1 Posts: 332
    Scott. Thanks for ordering!!! Wow this thread is really amazing, let's see how long we can make it. Any chance there's someone from egg HQ noticing this and may express an interest in the rack system??

    Low carbon steel, it'll season like cast iron, the more you use it the better it performs.

    Checkout our videos at our web site.

    We've had a set of carbon steel frypans for over a decade.  We love them and they get better every year.  It's a great metal for putting heat to meat.


    Firing up some steaks in mine right now. :)

    Below is a pic of my first ever cook on my XL Grill Dome.  The Grill Dome has a 22" main grate and the 18" raised grate.  I had some issues with my Swing Grate after a few cooks and have been without it for over 3 months now.  However, I still think it is a great product and hope to get a new one back soon.

    :)) I love steaks. I would eat the bastages daily if I could.  Pizza is a close second.

    Sorry I can't answer that. I don't have any of Tom's products to try the system with.

    WOW!!!! Blown away with this thread! Once again thank you to everyone that has commented and for all the orders that have been coming in. I'm truly touched.

    Warranty wise, I feel our product is well built to withstand some very long term use, should anyone have an issue please let me know and I'll work with you as best I can, customer support is very important to me!!

    With the use of the plate setter or any type of indirect setup, I would recommend ordering the post kit. What this will do is give you more flexibility for the up and down feature the upper rack has. With the standard post, you will strike the indirect setup below the main, so switching out the shafts will gain you more functionality.

    If you have any questions please contact me.

    Thanks again everyone.

    I just ordered the post kit.  I am able to jiggle and squeek past the stone on my spyder but the post kit would be quicker, easier and safer.  I'm just glad I got my rack before it goes big-time with offshore manufacture and sold by every grill dealer in the world.  My personal feeling is that this product is so well made it's not worth offshore/high-volume manufacture to save a few bucks.  The problem may be production numbers but that's a false worry.  Is more customers than you can supply a problem?  No,  just ask Harley Davidson.

    I truly appreciate the kind words and the advice....your points are duly noted, again I have no intentions on any offshore manufacturing.

    On that note lets open up another discussion. Those of you that purchased and are using the system, do you feel the price is worth the product, or do we think you over paid??

    The replies should be interesting.

    ;CGW1-if you are interested in the price vs product comments you may want to open that thread-that said, you will notice that I was the first to respond to the OP's inquiry about the system.  I absolutely think it is worth the money but to be fair I have not spent lots of $$ on other after-market accessories.  Been using it for almost a year-with no hiccups and don't expect any.  (Just gotta clean the swing rack stock piece every so often).  Based on what I see and read, I am one of the truly lucky ones in that I got your modified rig (able to clear the LBGE platesetter and before you reverted to the original design) and don't need the different sized stock pieces.  Anyhow, glad you have gotten all this traction, visibility and sales.  Been a long road I'm sure and it looks like a very bright future.  Congrats!

    @ lousubcap- thank you so much for the well wishes. Yes your are among the very few that have a modified 2 tier.

    It's great to have someone like you who has had the rack for as long as you've had it to post and let everyone know that it's holding up well.

    Price wise I feel it's priced accordingly for how it's made and I don't want people to think we're greedy or over charging. I'm just curious as to what the folks who have it feel about the price vs the product.

    Franco, why did you stop making the modified 2 tier rack in favor of independent different length shafts?

    The hole on the main grate was at the 3:00 position and at the furthest point on the grate (very edge), when the upper grate would be swung out of the way, the whole system would tip if there was no counter weight (food) on the main grate, it had no way to tip out as the side of the cooker would keep the system contained, but it didn't seem right, pay all this money and the darn thing would tip if you forgot to keep food on the main, so we went back to our original design.

    Just did steak fries and ribeye on the swing.  I don't parboil the potatoes. The wife marinates the fries in some sort of olive oil secret recipe.  It was sooo convenient.  Put the fries on the upper rack and let them go.  210 f till they're done.  When close I threw on the ribeyes and flipped at 4 minutes and done in 7 or so.  I couldn't do that before so easily.  I ran at 400 dome and will go 450 next time.  The carbon-steel left great black marks on the meat while still on the rare side inside.  I love my swing.  The price is above mediocre.  The quality is superbe.  I don't know anything about market research but if someone is willing to spend what it takes to get a BGE, they'll spend what it takes to get a rock-solid well machined American product.  If CGW wants to go foreign. wiggley. and cheap to capture a huge market share, God bless then and the the Lamborignis they will be driving.  I got mine and I'm fine!
