I have been making a mess of my hands and my patio every time I load up lump charcoal. Here is the problem.
You need to remove the ceramic cap and put it somewhere
You have to remove the Grill an place it somewhere
You need to remove the platesetter and put it somewhere
The patio get dirty when I put it on the floor.
My hands get last nights bbq drippings on them when I grab the platesetter
The platesetter is usually covered with a bit of black grease so it is especially messy.
Setting the platesetter back into the Egg when the coals are roaring, either burns my hand or makes me nervous that in a rush to not get burned, I might break it.
So I same up with a solution.
First I made a tool to move the platesetter without burning myself or getting dirty
Next I welded up a rack to hold the grill, platesetter, ceramic cap on the top shelf and a few other accessories.
It has a bin for the platesetter and grill so the drippings can fall into it without messing up the patio, and I left a hold in the bottom edge so it is easy to clean out.
Working good so far
