Drip Pan for small egg

<p />This "rack" solved my problem of allowing enough space above the grill to fit a 21 lb turkey into a small egg. The "rack" is fabricated from rails I took from a hanging file cabinet. It just allows a 9" pie pan to fit beneath the grill in the small egg. Thanks to djm5x9 for the idea to use a pie pan under the grill.

    Daryl,[p]oops, I re-read the archive. It was Dan Cooper "dec" who suggested the pie-pan and rack. djm5x9 helped me refine the idea after I tried to substite a pyrex plate. Got to give credit where credit is due... Thanks Dan

    Daryl,[p]I actually like your setup better than the one I was thinking of doing. It looks like fewer hassles. I am also thinking about upgrading the grate. I can't seem to get high temps and have trouble getting quick starts. I have to blow through the bottom vent to get the fire started most of the time.[p]Dec

    I have the same problem with the small, but have found that using smaller loads of charcoal helps a lot. I need to do something about the ceramic grate also. It just broke.

    Nature Boy,[p]I think someone(Gfw?) replaced his grate with a shower drain. I may look into that. I guess some people also use fans to get the fire going. I almost passed out like the guy on survivor once so I have used a hair drier the last few times to get more air through the vent.[p]Dec
