Grid lifter

I didn't have one. A grid lifter, that is. I was planning to order one eventually, but welding gloves work just fine and I already have those. Today I hit the restaurant supply store for a few things I've been needing / wanting and in the area with the pizza supplies I looked down and saw this little bad boy labeled "deep dish pizza lifter" or some such. It makes a pretty darn good grid lifter and it cost me all of $2.50. I just thought I'd pass it along in case any of you are looking for a grid lifter and you have a good restaurant supply shop nearby.

    Looks identical to the one from BGE. That's funny because I knew it looked familiar but forgot where I used it until this post. Lol...thanks for the info.
    Just a hack that makes some **** BBQ...

    The two on the left are grid lifters. The most used tool next to the Eggs (IMO). They are made by LawnRanger. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

    I have one just like Mickey. I use it every time I use my egg. Mike (lawn ranger) is a great guy and does beautiful work.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    I found a pizza pan tool similar to the one above for a few bucks too. I don't know how much BGE is selling them for....but they are pretty cheap. They work pretty well too.

    I also have a custom one from Lawn Ranger.

    I use the deep dish pizza tool also.  The BGE version has a spring to hold it open which is helpful.  I added an o-ring to do the same thing.  I also bent the tip up to make it fit into the grid better.

    I read in a different thread that Lawn Ranger wasn't making those anymore?

    I use my ash tool. Obviously this only works when there is nothing on the grid.

  • Am I the only one that can't figure out how Lawn Ranger's grid lifters work?

     

    FWIW, I bought the BGE lifter and find it pretty useless. I just use gloves. It has a little rust on it from sitting out in the Portland rain, but if anyone wants it, I can ship to you.

    Believe it or not, I was at TJ Maxx the other day and found this on the clearance rack for less than $4 and snatched it up, there was only one. Couldn't be happier although I like the kind that allows you to suspend or hang the grate off the ground.

    I was with LawnRanger over the weekend. He is still making them, just behind......

  • Thanks, Mickey. I guess I thought somehow you lifted the grid with the end of the piece of steel. I see now that those must be used for cleaning the grid.

    Correct on the deals on the end. As you can see (and before  :ar! says something) I do not clean a grill till the next time I get it hot to cook and then use the end of the grid lifter to clean it.

  • I just got a tool to pull pizza pans and it works great. $3 at a restaurant supply store. Made in china but what do you expect for $3. Now if I only could devise something to pull my plate setter out.

    Back when I used the plate setter I used what Dave in Florida is showing and gloves.
