So, first off I have a High-Que fire grate for my LBGE. The original fire grate sits in the garage only to be used when I want to cold smoke with the Amaze-N-Smoker. When I want to cold smoke I put the original fire grate on top of the charcoal and set the ANS on top of the original fire grate. It has worked the last 5 times I have done it (for cold-smoking salmon and cheese). It worked, that is, until last night. I had my first attempt at bacon on the Egg to smoke for 8 hours last night. This morning when I woke up to pull it off the egg I was greeted by a black chunk of burned pork belly where my cold-smoked bacon should have been. :( Apparently during the night the pellets in the ANS generated enough heat to ignite the charcoal and cause everything to go up in smoke.
So, let this be a lesson to those of you out there. Have a better way to isolate your lump from the AMNS than setting it on the original BGE fire grate.
