I'm trying to use my powers for good now.
Can folks who purchased a BGE Grid Extender through the group buy (or otherwise) post their tips and questions here? The aim is to have one consolidated thread for folks to reference now and in the future (if the search function ever works properly). Pics would be great.
There have been some threads recently about which grid to buy. Seems like the recommendation is to buy the grid for one size smaller egg and use it as the top grid i.e. for an XL, buy the grid for a large and bolt it on as the top (swinging) grid. For the LBGE, buy a medium grid, and so on. Weber charcoal grids can possibly be used in lieu of BGE grids - they are not stainless steel, but a good deal cheaper than BGE grids. The Weber cooking grids will bow somewhat if used as the top grid with the extender.
If there is already a thread going with the same intent, then we should post there, in order to keep as much info in one thread as possible.
Some extenders have already been delivered, so the cooks should start soon. I imagine that a fair number will be done this weekend. Please post pics of your experience with the BGE Grid Extender.
