Hello... I am a recent convert.. I gave my weber away Saturday and am working out the nuances of the new large BGE I purchased.... pretty interesting tool.. (restaurant quality ribs were made last sunday....truly excellent...) what is the purpose of the raised grid I read about and how do you do it? is it to increase the cooking area? this is the one thing I miss about my weber and I would like to rectify it... any help would be greratly appreciated... Thanks!!!!!!!!

    You can use the raised grid to have a second grid and increase cooking capacity. I usually raise it when I do spatchcock chicken to get the bird further from the fire. I just put some firebrick on edge and put a second grid on top. See the photo on my spatchcock chicken webpage. Other folks have used stainless bolts to make legs that sit on the fire ring. BGE makes a grid that attaches to the regular grid.[p]TNW

    The Naked Whiz,
    Is there an advantage to this method (bricks and a second grill) over just keeping the coals lower in the egg? Seems like the objective would be accomplished either way, but I sure don't know all there is to know about this great grill.[p]Harry
