Does it count as on topic since I used an xl kick ash basket and a small fire ring??  This has become one of my favorite setups for weeknights

    I don't know if it counts or not, but I'd eat every one of those brats - so it's a good post in my book.

    It’s great because I can use briquettes for stuff like this, lump for faster cooks that demand more sear like steak or remove the ring and use lump to start splits and roll. 

    I’ve had a bad habit of overfilling the fuel and wasting a bunch. This helps me keep it in reason

  • I love this setup - great idea.  I may try this on my Hasty-Bake to concentrate a pile of coals.

    That is pure creativity.  Way to mix and match and nail the cook.  Congrats.

    I have always been an advocate of briquettes. There are several scenarios where they really shine and are just far more practical. To this day I use briquettes on my mini 90% of the time. 
    I have said it many times before and I will say it again now, there is just something special about meat “grilled” over briquettes.  
    On a separate note, great looking grub my friend and a thumbs up for using briquettes 👍

    Status- Standing by.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out. 

  • We grill at work, we have four 26.5” kettles (convinced the big boss to buy them), my 22.5” kettle, and my mini egg. Since we use briqs in the kettles, I use it in the mini all the time, just like @SGH. I find it works incredibly well.

    After using briquettes, I hope you do not put that back in your Egg.  Pretty sure briquettes void the warranty too.

    Aside from that, awesome setup!
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    They don't void the warranty.  There are many briq options these days that are chemical free, and bound by vegetable oils or other natural binders.  They function quite well in an egg.
