This weeks cooks on the Small Egg

Reverse seared picanha (top sirloin cap). Seasoned with a mix of Rub Co Santa Maria & Original rubs. Used some red oak for smoke. Indirect portion of cook at 250 and seared on the CI grid.

I took a hacksaw to a grid extender and removed almost 1" off to get a little more room for the 10" mini grid on top (about 3" of space between grids now). First two tier cook was a simple indirect chicken wing cook with 24 wings at around 300-320 degrees. In hindsight I should have cooked the drumettes on the top grid to benefit from the slightly higher temps on the upper grid and have the wings come off both grids at about the same time.

    Before making the modification, the grid extender put the upper grid so high that there was very little room to fit food between the grid and dome. Some Small users couldn't even close their domes as reported here: http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1154077/grid-extender-too-boku-for-the-small


    I decided to cut off an amount equal to the size of the spacer that comes with the extender. I sandwiched each half of the extender between some scrap wood (to protect finish on the extender) and clamped into my bench vise. Measured the amount to cut off and got to work with a hacksaw.


    Here's a side by side of the stock (left) and modified (right) extenders:

    I saved the pipe piece I cut off (left) to use as a spacer (original on right):
