Default Found a use for a useless grate...

Academy sells replacement round grates under their store brand. One would think they fit Weber kettles, but they do not.

I bought one for the 18.5 OTG, and it was exactly one inch too small.

I put it aside to return later, and you know how that goes.

Well, I am curing and smoking tasso today, and needed more grate space, but wanted everything to cook at the same rate.

Low and behold, the Academy grate stacks on top of the handles on an 18.5 Weber hinged grate...



It is pretty darned stable, too. And, being one inch smaller, it fits under the dome of my WSM lid.

Nice work, CD! I think I will keep my ECB grates around now when I trash that guy...never know, I suppose.

I am horrible about returning things as well ;) The one thing I tried to return in a timely manner was a bottle of Woodford Reserve I bought a couple Saturdays ago at Goody Goody. I got it home and found the seal was broken. I figured I would just take it back on the following Monday. Well, after a day of sitting in my car, I came out from work to a bourbon scented car as the cork top had popped from the heat and the full bottle soaked into my rear footwell. 2 weeks later and it still has a hint of bourbon :(

Taught me my lesson on quick returns

Glad it wasn't a "useless IN-grate!"

I appreciate the info because that would serve well for multiple layers of appetizers...ABTs, Moinks, candy bacon, etc...

Those are the upgrade grates. They come standard on the OTG's and the Performers.
