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!

Raised grid for my mini.

I picked up another grid for my mini to try a raised grid. It is raised 2 1/2" I know that's not very much but every little bit helps. I will try it out over the weekend to see how it does and I will post pics and do a follow up.

    Cool. And the lid still closes? Watch the thermo too.

    Yes it closes, and I'm sure I will have to watch the thermometer. I hope it works I won't know until I try it out. I mainly wanted it for wings.

    You can always take a bottle cork and drill a hole and put the thermometer through the hole and then into the egg if you need extra room.

    +1. 

    Didn't the grid diameter change in the past year or so? I want to try the raised grid, but not sure if the new grid I get will fit. Did you have an old grid or did you buy it recently?

    I think all the Mini's have enough slop room to take the 10" grid. BGE has gone up and down a couple times on the Mini.
    Thank you,

    Now why didn't I think of that?! I have two 8" CI grids. One is for searing steaks in my large...

    I just bought the grid a few weeks ago but haven't got around to putting it together until today. It is a 10" grid and seems to have enough room to add a few things. I will cook some wings tomorrow to try it out.

    I have a 9 1/2" diameter grid that came with the Egg a few years ago as my upper. Fit is pretty tight for the 2nd grid on top of a mini Woo.





    @Ospreydog - do you have a Woo or a Platesetter for indirect? Or are you using 2 tiers for direct cooks only?

    I am going to put two pieces of thin stainless flat bar under the fire ring with some small spacers on top of that and a 7 1/2" metal pizza pan on top of that for indirect. I have a woo but it's too high unless I lower the bolts a little more. Tomorrow will be the first try so I will post pics as I go. I'm not sure how it will work until I try it, but I have a bunch of wings to give it my best shot.

    I like all of the creative engineering we eggers come up with!

    I bought it at Bob and Teds trophy shop they are a BGE dealer. I have a woo but the raised grid won't fit using it. I'm going to try this thing out with some wings about lunch time.

    Update on the raised grid. It worked great, I was able to keep the temp at an even 350° and cook 17 wings, probably could have cooked a couple more. Here are a few pics.
