What do you use the most?
For me:
GridLifter - LawnRanger (on all Eggs)
Adj Rig - Tom @ CeramicGrills (Lg egg)
Wiggle Rod - LawnRanger (Large and Small)
Spider - Tom @ CeramicGrills (Large egg)
GrateMates - Chubby (small only)
MiniWoo - Tom (Mini only)

The GridLifter would be the number one used item for
the 3 eggs in total usage.
Salado TX Egg Family: 3 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now).

    I use my grid pliers every cook, but beyond that I use my AR a lot for large cooks, grid-raising and letting things warm on the top while grilling on the bottom. Great Eggcessory.

    Ash tool, everytime I cook
    Grid lifter, everytime I cook
    I have a thermapen but only use it for thick cuts of meat and poultry, otherwise I can tell by look or feel if a piece of meat is done.
    PLatesetter would be next

    weed burner, grid lifter, adj rig, 12 inch cast pan, wok sitting in the spider, mini wool and 6 inch cast pan. funky plate setter I got hoping it might fit in the mini but didn't. I use it a lot to set up indirect in part of the large.
    this is a metal plant stand thingey and i use it a lot too. it also sits on the top of the med with the daisy wheel off and the coffee pots stays hot camping
    we do not use this often but boy it is nice ;)when we do LOL
  • RipnemRipnem Posts: 5,511

    You can still turn that into a mini ps. I kept a friends small ps that had 2 broken legs and crudely made this with an angle grinder and a diamond wheel.
  • NC-CDNNC-CDN Posts: 703
    I use the grid lifter, ash tool and grill brush every time I use my egg.

    The platesetter gets used most often after that and my V-rack. Sometimes use the rib rack as well. On all long cooks I use my nanoQ. I use the pizza stone on occasion when we do a pizza, but we don't do them often.

    The bigger thing is...what do I want to buy next!!! I want to get a cast iron grid I think and maybe one of those things to give me two grid surfaces so I can cook more. Sweet.

    Clue me, what's a Billy BAR
  • THATHA Posts: 192
    I like the idea of the thongs best, but not on you, on her
  • Isolated01Isolated01 Posts: 156
