Grate too Low!

I'm finding one thing I don't like about my Egg. I was wanting some advice. When cooking with direct heat, I don't like how low the cooking grate sits down in my Egg. Are there any eggsessories out there I can use to raise the cooking grate so it's easier to get to? Thanks, Mike

  • I wouldn't call it an eggsessory, but I just went to Home Depot and bought some 1 inch copper tubing (~$5) and cut 3 pieces that are 4 inches long and put these pieces on the fire ring and then put the grate on these, if I need to move it up some.  I've heard others use pennies, which you could better adjust the height of, but with my luck they'd fall in the fire or something.

    You can make a raised grid like this:

    ...or use fire bricks

    ...or check out some eggcessories from ceramic grill store such as the Woo

    Good luck!


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.
