Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

    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.
