It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

    Amazon sells them.   You can also get mangrates ;)

    Personally, I'm completely happy with the factory grill grate.  Be very careful with cast iron grates - they're fragile. If you drop it on concrete, it can break.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.

    I just checked the same thing today.  Amazon had it for 65 I believe.

    Craycort CI grid is around 70 bucks, I believe. It has removable sections too.

    Craycort CI grids are awesome - perfect grill marks and great customer service.

    Watch the one on amazon I think it's sold by music city metals I picked mine up a few months back for like 45 on sale. Add it to your wishlist and you will get emails of price drops. I love mine I know it doesn't taste better but I love some pretty sear marks on my meat!

    The CI grill grate was one of my must have Eggcessories. I love the great grill marks I get. I am a little confused though, around here the dealers have the BGE version for $49.95. Unless you have something to securely pick it up, you might want to consider the BGE CI grid lifter for $20 bucks.

    I found a 18" CI today @ "the Parts Biz" for $39. It's $14 to ship but it weights just over 12lbs...

    Must have, here. But paid $70 at Fred's, who is on the high side. Also for the mini, can't remember but I think with shipping $49.

    I have to say the bge brand grate was spend but the build quality seems legit. OK with the $50 I paid for the mini one

    I use the carbon steel Swing Rack from Ceramic Grill Works which is very similar to cast iron and allows me to have a second tier with easy access to the bottom level. I can get great sear marks with it as well. 

    I like the craycort ones because you can get a griddle piece for it as well, but I have never used one.
