  • Simon,

    I have a 10" that I have used on the mini. It's really just good for grilling - not much room for air to move around with the dome closed.

    That´s the reason I asked. I´m not sure if it sits on the mini like a cork on a wine bottle :) ...

    ... and the fire is getting out...

    I have this 9" Lodge CI skillet and I cut the handle off. It works on the mini just fine.

    Thanks Kim,

    Problem is, there is no smaller Lodge skillet than the 10 1/4 inch available over here in Germany...

    Don't give up on other brands.
    Check any kind of second hand or thrift store for used pieces.
    Thank you,

  • maybe try ebay?
  • There were some really great ideas for Mini grid-toppers in the video I posted yesterday. Some looked worthy of commercialization. Might get some ideas there:

    I use my small or large Egg when I need some sort of griddle or skillet. Even so, I'm thinking I may have to add a griddle of some kind just in case I want to travel with my Mini.

    Leroy,

    Ginny and I take the mini when we camp or tailgate. The pizza stones, mini Kim woo & 9"CI skillets are a must for us.

    Usually when we camp every meal is cooked on the mini and we only have to take a small bag of lump. One of my best efforts was the 2 1/2 boneless pork butt I did at Thanksgiving for a pulled pork appetizer...yummy

    Your mini video is killer and yes if I was a BGE dealer I would have that on a loop...sorry I didn't see your requests for pics but you did a great job without me...LOL ;)
  • Thanks Kim. Yes, I could have used your photos too. I'm sure they were just as impressive as the ones in the movie.

    Send 'em to me when you get a chance, along with a brief description of what is being cooked. I'll add it to the stack in the event that I edit the original video or make a second one.

    Lots of Mini talent out there.

  • I have 5 cast iron pans that fit on the mini.

    This oval one is from Tomlinson, and it fits perfectly. Got it at Rest. Depot $10.

    I have an 8 inch Emeril with the handle cut off:

    And also a 6 inch Lodge that fits with the handle still on. Oh, and a square griddle that PhotoEgg was nice enough to send me.
    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    Faith do you just use salt to clean the CI after a cook like the last picture? Or do you do something elese?

    This is a panini press with the handle ground off.
    Small lip on one side and raised groovs on the flip.
    Works great. $7.00 at one of the discount stores.
    Bring you one to Salado?

  • Mickey, I use a plastic scaper that came with the Pampered chef pizza stone. I scrape off whatever I can and wipe the CI out with a paper towel that has been sprayed with Pam.

    ohhhh, I remember that. I like it. Yes please Darian. Would you mind sawing off that handle for me?
    You guys need anything from here? I'd be obliged.

    Already done just waiting for a good home.
    I picked up about 6 of them to give away and still have a couple left. It's yours.
