Swing grate setup

Here's what worked for me. I bought the lower Weber charcoal grill which was about 10 bucks at the Depot to be the upper for my large. Then I bought a cast iron 18.5 inch on Amazon from Music City Metals http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000HKI2YY/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 for the bottom of my large. Then I took my original BGE grill from the large and used it for the top on my XL.  Doing the math and including my Medium I now have 9.4 sq ft of BGE grill area!imageimageimageimageimage

    Looks good, what size is the weber you got at The Depot for the large?

    It's the lower charcoal grate for I believe a 22 inch weber. It measures about 17 inches across and it's made out of heavier steel than the upper cooking grate. It's like it was made for it.

    The swivel part is the grid extender from the group buy last month.

    Could you fit two 8lb pork butts and 2 16lb briskest on the swing grate? I have a LBGE. I'm thinking butts on top, briskest on bottom.

    That sounds a little ambitious for a large but what the heck give it a try. Might want to look in to an XL for that much at once.
