    Alternative cooking grates ?

    Hi all,

    does anyone have any suggestions for a replacement cooking grate for the summit charcoal bbq? All of the grates I’m finding in the uk at 57cm, and the summit is a 61cm.

    im sure the removable round bit in the gourmet system works for some people, but I’m close to frisbeeing it through a neighbours window soon with how often it falls out when doing things

    I’m with ya on that Weber grate. I hated mine. It was heavy, a pain in the ass to move around and that centerpiece always falling out like you said. I bought a new grate and actually threw the Weber grate in the trash. Sorry, I can’t help you with finding a new one since you’re in the UK.

      If all else fails, get some ss wire and wire it in place...


        Try these guys. I bought one for my performer and the thing is a tank.

          thanks! If I can’t find anything local I’ll bite the bullet and pay customs and shipping on that !

          Edit Yikes - found them on Etsy UK, and it's just over £70 for delivery alone. Guess I'll go find some stainless steel wire.

            These guys have been recommended a bunch. Shipping might kill you though.

              I gave up searching and ordered. It arrived tomorrow, and they factored in shipping and duties, so there were no surprises when it arrived. It is incredibly solid !

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
