Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
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!

    grid extender

    pm @eggcelsior to see if you can still order. 

    I love mine. I have the XL, coupled with the L SS grid, I have a ton of cooking space. I am going to get the adjustable rig sometime in the future, 

    Here is the grid extender in action, posted by another user:

    if your looking for something cheap and quick, homedepot has weber replacement grids that fit and get two bricks to put the grid on. for more money the adjustable rig combo from the ceramic grill store is nice, especially if you didnt buy the platesetter

  • Got everything I needed at Ace Hardware.  5" SS bolts, washers and wing nuts so I could adjust it up and down.  Only need 3 bolts not 4. Much cheaper than an adjustable rig and works great.

    That is really cool.   I have been contemplating that I need multi-level cook - on the verge of starting exploration - this totally resets my approach.

    Where did you get the top Grill?  What is the diameter of the top grill?

    I love the grid extender. I use it with an $8 weber grid so under $35 for the whole setup, gotta love it

    Fast, easy and cheap.  Four carriage bolts, nuts and washers.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!

    I just bought everything at Lowes today, like $18. Trying the 3 bolts as recommended by Dave. Once I get it put together I will post pictures and stability of the 3 bolt set up. This will also raise the grid for spatchcock chicken cooking.

    A Woo turned upside down is a very neat solution and conserves space.  It isn't the cheap solution.
