Flat top insert for grill.

Post by pr0wlunwoof » July 14th, 2019, 10:20 am

Been wanting to do this for a while. Almost broke down and bought a flat top stand alone. Glad I didn't. ImageImageImageImageImageImage

I'm going to make one of those once I build my new BBQ. It won't fill the whole grill but maybe half....but that is down the road a bit as I still have to build the BBQ.

Looks like an awfully good idea. You've got enough vent space around the edges to avoid overheating the cook box? Quarter inch sheet?

I can see that a grease trap would be a good idea. 3/8" might be a little heavy to pick up, but any less and 'd be looking for hot spots.

I have one and love it as well. I’ve got short sides/back on mine. Love it to push food against to get on the chef spatula. Love the work on it....everyone should have one.
