Lodge trivet vs BGE steel grate

<p />Thanks to all of you who wrote to me about the Lodge trivet. I was the 2nd guy to have one back in 1999 -- not sure who #1 was but I was #2 about 2+ years ago. I am familiar with it, thanks.[p]The lodge trivet works well, but it is somewhat tippy and some reasonable care must be taken to not rock it when stiring lump. The BGE grate is more stable. The Lodge has larger holes which allows more air but also more coals drop through. Not sure if that's bad since they burn down under the grate just as well. The Lodge is a casting so high heat can make an air pocket or contaminated area expand and crack the casting. Steel doesn't have that problem. Time will tell how well it works but either are better than a ceramic grate. If you need a replacement - go steel. [p]BGE steel in large egg - top pic

  • Tim M,[p]I was number 1 with the Lodge trivet from Holt. I purchased 2 of them and am still using the 1st one. It has a crack but works well. Hit 1250º two weeks when I wasn't looking. Luckily steaks were on the menu.[p]Later,

  • Tim M,[p]Three 3.5" bolts, some nuts and some washers fitted on the trivet work great as a set of legs. I've yet to have any tip over issues.[p]CC
