Other than a homemade Gird riser is there any thing that is made for the egg that raises the grid? if so, can you tell me where i can find something like that.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

    That's a good idea, never considered that before.  How much are those, ballpark range?

    I use this one.  Fits the Large Egg perfectly.  8 lb butts fit under it.

    As The Cen-Tex Smoker said Ceramic grill store and ceramic grill works are great places to get fun toys to make egging better. For my small I have a woo ring and it never comes out, you can put a pizza stone on the lower bars and use it instead of the platesetter, so I didn't even buy a platesetter for my small.

    For raised direct on my large I just use fire bricks split in half but I have a two tier swing rack from ceramic grill works and love it!

    There are many options out there but these two work for me on my two eggs.

    Thanks Mike, I like this. Question? when i click this link it goes to the rack and is marked as a "medium" size. is this the one you are saying that fits the large Egg? Thanks

    Yep.  Leg bottoms are about 17" across measured at the "feet".  The 15" top kind of helps police you to not position longer things like spares out where they will drip back behind the fire ring. 

    The wire is quite heavy and has a nice porcelain coating over it.  With a 4.5" clearance an 8 lb butt will actually be touching the underside of the top but the problem goes away as the butts shrink in cooking.
