YES, I have read the whole thread!!

As you see in the pic below, I use 4 landscape timber spikes for my top grate. These can wobble a bit but that's the whole purpose because it makes the grate self leveling.

The grate below that is suspended on 3 bolts. Why not spikes and why not 4? No special reason.
