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.
