    @sgt93- your such a tease!!! @va in ga- anythings possible, maybe we should take a poll and see how many medium eggers would want one??
    Since there really is only one accessory for the mini and very few for the small, you may want to tap into that market as well Franco. A mini-rack for a few rows of ABT's, or two pizzas, a plate setter like device etc would be cool. 
    GREAT!  I'm in for one medium and one for the mini of anything!  Getting a small BGE next month, it seems that what works for the small works on the mini too..

  • I just loaded up the large BGE and adjusted my swing rack for a cook starting tomorrow night. I have two 8 pound butts for the bottom and one 10.5 pound butt for the top. I am glad I bought my rack back in November before the demand increased...... Love it and even use the top rack placed low in the fire ring for searing steaks.

    It's the best accessory I have purchased yet. Mine is so seasoned, I could throw raw food on there and pick it right back off and be in heaven :))

    The updated info I received today is promising. I should be able to start shipping orders out mid to late next week.

    Now for the possible bad news...not everyone will make the cut for this production run. I have already placed another order in for production, but based on where my order falls, I'm looking at 3-6 wks.

    I will once having my orders lined up post names on this thread, these names will be getting there order on this run. If your name isn't listed, you will be on the next run.

    Hope this makes sense.

    @CGW1 maybe you could set up a poll / survey at Survey Monkey? Seems like every time I am asked to do a survey, its thru them.

    +1 on survey monkey. It is easy and you can share the link.

    Count me in for a medium swing grate if you ever make one.  I have two of the large ones and can't imagine Egging without one.

    Question for those who have the 2-tier.  I built a homemade tier, but when I put a cast-iron pan (13" or so) or something heavy towards the middle or opposite the support system, my 2nd grid begins to slope downward.  (I have used a firebrick to support the far edge when this happens).

    Does anyone know how much weight the top rack can support on the Ceramic Grill Works tier system?

    Check out their web site as they posted some videos with pretty good weights on the top grid.  I have had easily around 12-15#'s of food up there wih no issues-and that's not close to the capacity.  Hopefully Franco (CGW) will be along with better info.

    @zosobao5150 - depends on the weight of what your putting on that top tier plus the temp your cooking at...I would say take the weight of that cast iron pan plus whatever your cooking in it and try it.  I've never done it, can't say I thought of adding a cast iron pan on the top tier.

    I did a you tube video where I used 35# of weight lifting weights on the top tier and 5# on the bottom tier, but that was only to illustrate that when swinging the upper out of your way that the whole system would not tip.  The cooker was cold no lump and the grate was cold also, not sure this answers your question.  You can put some serious food on that top tier without worry, just not sure with a CI pan what would happen.  Hopefully someone on the forum can help answer that for you.

    Thanks Franco and lousubcap.  I was doing potatos/green peppers in the CI skillet and need to throw on the main course.  That is why I stuck it on my second tier.  I will check out the video.
