Do you put something between the coals and the bottom grate?
Yes, the grate is past the ridge. It will fit. Turn it a little sideways and push. I have seen others trim off one section of the grate but it will fit as is.
I installed 3 dampers in the bottom and keep the factory damper shut. I have a grate ubder the coals and ring.
