Raised Grid

Anyone have any suggestions on a good raised grid to buy for a large.  I looked at the one BGE has at Ace hardware and it seemed a little low and maybe even a little flimsy.  Anyone use any other ones?  Or guess I could just keep putting beer cans on top of my grid and placing another small grid on top of them!  :-)

    I have a Woo 2 from the Ceramic Grill Store. It works great and raises my grid to the felt line. I can also use the lower ring to sear or wok. A very handy device, very sturdy and built to last.

  • I have the swing grate and you can get extra lengths for the stand on the swing part and you can get  several inches above the felt line it is the best heavy duty cast iron type material will not bend

    You have lots of options:

    Ceramic Grill Store: -Check out the Woos and Adjustable Rig

    Ceramic Grill Works: - check out the swing grate

    Grill extender: - a nice low cost option. PM Eggcelsior
    to see if you can still get it

    DIY options: grid on beer cans or firebricks, grid mounted on 3-4 stainless bolts/nuts//washers

    If you have a plate setter that you want to leverage make sure the option you're considering works with it.

    I picked up a grill dome extender for 1/2 price at a local BBQ clearance a year or so ago. It is very well made and sits on the fire ring, cooking height is about an inch above the felt line. It is about 2" smaller than the normal grid size so for a large, it is just under 16" in diameter. Not worth the $40 asked but for <$20, it is nice to have. 

    Picture is in my MBGE, set-up for a reverse sear. It will sit right on the fire ring.
