i would do as everyoneelse has said. i have one for my large and it is well oiled and sitting in a box in my garage the same place it has been for the last 4 years. the one for the large is heavy and too hard to move around. so i put mine up. you only need one if you eat with your eyes they are not to useful other than that....
just my $.02

Well here's my 2 cents. If you fill the fire box up with lump, there is no need to lower the CI grate. There standard size grate is larger@ 17" and you will be a few inches away from the coals. If that is not hot enough, well I don't know what to tell you. Either way the addition of the cast grates will be a big plus for your cooks.
