Raised grid with cast iron grid on the Mini.
Thanks Tom, raised grid works great with cast iron grid. Still waiting on small pizza stones.

I need a little more seasoning on the cast iron.

First salmon on cast iron. Oiled well but still stuck a little.

    Thanks for the pics on the mini. The food always looks great on the BGE. I should get my woo2 today for medium - will do some burgers tonight to test drive the woo2.

    I'm in the process of lookng for a mini to go with my medium.

    Any more comments on the woo2 for the mini?
  • what is that gasket where did you get it ? thanks

    Bill,

    I have the mini and a new & improved mini woo2. It is great. Just get the 8.5" pizzas stones from Amazon for great indirect cooking and mini pizzas....

    Thank you Anne,
    The cast iron grates need a little more TLC before they will work. They were under 2' of salt water before I cut to fit the mini. I will have the CD in the mail for you in the morning from OKC.

    I had to do the gasket. It fell off for the most part when I unpacked it from the factory box. The rest pulled off clean with a little tug.
    Fun little grill.

    Thank you.
    The Mini is a fun little grill. The extra little space the Woo provides helps.
    I would still think about the small egg over the mini unless you need a travel egg as your primary use. The small is so much easier to cook on.

    Thanks, appreciate your candor.

    Just rec'd my woo2!
  • Photo EggPhoto Egg Posts: 7,904
    I used a cut off wheel on a small angle grinder to cut the cast iron grate.
    I made one for my small as well a year or so ago.
    I started doing it with a band saw and the first cut was like butter and then it just went dead and would not cut. The angle grinder did a great job.

    The gasket is a Rutland gasket.
    Not what BGE would want you to use
    but I have them on a few of my eggs
    and they work great.
    You can do a forum search for Rutland and
    find out all the details or contact me on the side.
