  • Someone mentioned using a 5 Gal. Pail and cutting out the bottom replacing it with expanded metal, and stacking onto another pail, allowing the fine dust and pieces to fall down. Hope this helps.
  • @Mickey, Don't forget the Mangrates
  • Mangrate has already contributed to the Salado eggfest and listed as a sponsor/donator. They're a reputable company and will be in many eggfests this year especially the event In Upland CA, early this year. BTW, thanks for the positive comments.
  • @IrishDevl Send me a PM and i will get @eggo a Mangrate to try out, But you're going to need more than just one Boomer.

  • The Rub Co. Santa Maria Rub Hands down the very best for me and other locals.
  • All I know is that a few restaurants have the Mangrates and the meats that are grilled on them turn out better than using their pre-existing CI grates, I used them on my LGBGE last night grilling aTri Tip and Beef Ribs, my guest's were on cloud 9. I…
  • henapple said: Why the hurry? Wouldn't it be a shame to haver the Mangrates sitting on a table somewhere instead of putting them to work? Like having a soap and shampoo and not bathing with it
  • @Mickey, Is there anyone in Salado or the surrounding areas that wanna take the Mangrates for a test run now that you have them in your hands? Its almost like having a Bathtub and not using it :( Can you just try them, Eventhough youre allergic t…
  • Anyone have a secret Mancrush on the Mangrates?  
  • @Mickey I'm wondering why they can't begin to use them now? They can get familiar with them and start posting reviews and most importantly, pics. My .02
  • Mickey said: Got here today to let people use at the Salado EggFest March 16th and then give away. This package was heavy. Had 4 4X15 grates and a brush in it. Told VI I would send him two to try out and bring back to the Fest in March …

  • BTW, What's the latest on the mangrate action?
  • Mickey said: Just ran into a cook from a couple of years ago and this weekend is time to bring back marinated serloin steak kabobs.   Mickey, Wheres the mangrates?
  • r270ba said: Don't take this the wrong way but that did not answer my question.  Not sure what is going on with Mangrate around here.  Seems like the forum has been flooded with posts about it and I am starting to wonder if they are paying everyo…
  • yzzi said: I admit that if I didn't just buy a thermapen and a looftlighter that I'd probably spend $20 on these just for the sake of trying it. @yzzi See if Justin will FRONT you the product for the time being, You never know what he's will…

  • OH NOOOOO, Not the Mangrates again? LOL!
  • Yes, the name is funky.  What's wrong with mangrates?  Sort of looks like the grillgrate, just that it's CI.  Why is it being received with such negativity?   @SmoothSmoke, someone on here besides me will buy a set or a few, Salado TX will alre…

  • I might call this guy and see if I can borrow a set. The company is an hour south of me. Eggcelsior, Justin is a stand up guy and would prolly match Grill grates price, to get them in the hands of our fellow eggers. Did anyone check out the EGG …

  • @NEWB_IN_NOLA Did you try the coupon code? Could you verify that the eggers price is the exact same as the previous host's that you have mentioned? Let me know what you find out. I don't make the prices for their product, call Justin and ask if he …

  • EggerinLA said: No contest. GrillGrates are better and they make them to fit the Egg. The GrillGrates owner has participated in numerous Eggtoberfests also. Below is a link to a non biased discussion on both products and some of the posters d…

  • Mickey said: @Boomer we will give them a run at the Salado Fest. I will ask @Village Idiot to try one out. It will be the next day to get his report as Gary's station is 9 miles down creek. @Mickey, you will have time to put them to t…

  • I have sent Justin a message and he will get us up and running shortly, as i before mentioned that he was setting us up, NOT that it is set up yet. I will let you guys know when its a go. It seems that us eggers will be getting a 30% discount and …
