Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

OK. Have had my large egg for a week. I've read a million and one posts on how to cook chicken parts and they all say if you want the most flavor then cook it raised-direct. (I've cooked with plate setter and it was OK... but not outstanding.) I'm not very handy and am on a budget (after breaking the bank on the egg.. wife took away checkbook!) 

Can someone give me step by step instructions on what to buy, where to buy it, and how to put it together? From what I gather I can get an inexpensive grid at Lowes or Home Depot, but what size? I can get some bolts and nuts and washers... but don't quite understand how do to this so that the bolts will sit on the bottom grid. The Naked Wiz says to "flare" them out so they sit on the fire ring? (It would be great if someone had a YouTube video on this whole subject.)

Anyone have a simple, step by step method to on how to get/make a raised grid without spending $40?
