Grill grate on LBGE fire box...there's a simple solution

edited December 2011 in EggHead Forum

A few weeks ago there was a thread about putting the main grate (LBGE-181/4") on top of the fire box for sears....Main grate is around 3/4" too big diameter wise.  Got thinking about this and went to my BGE dealer (who also is a Weber dealer) and Weber has a 171/2" grate that is a great fit on top of the LBGE firebox-did a test fit at the dealer and now own one.  Will test this week as the weekend is devoted to using the smoker function. FYI-

 

Louisville;  L & S BGEs, PBC, Lang 36; Burnin' wood in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.

    I threw away my $50 water smoker (it was falling apart) when I got my Large last spring, but pulled the two grates and the water pan out and tossed them in a corner first, with no particular plans for them.
    Your post gave me an idea, and voila! the slightly larger grate fits on top, and the slightly smaller one fits on the firebox!  Thanks for posting!

    Or you can just buy a spider from the ceramic grill store and a 13" CI grate.
