    I checked yesterday for this sidefire box warmer plate that a friend and I have been discussing. Low and behold CG already has developed one on their website (I think it was like $13 or so).

    http://www.chargriller.com/shop/bbq-...mer-plate.html

    Few questions:

    Has everyone seen this on their site?

    Has anyone installed it, how??

    How does it work, good/ok/bad/not worth it?

    Thanks for reading and any input.
     
  2. no picture,but I was thinking about a warming plate also. I would imagine that it is a plate/box attatatched to a curved peice of steel that would slip and lay on top of the fire box.

    Yea, jersey CG hasnt got one posted on that page. The only way that I saw it was on their homepage as their smokers cycle around you can catch a glimpse of a SP with one mounted on it. Got to be quick. =)

    put one on mine free.... talked Gramason out of a piece of metal.... drilled a couple holes... few stainless bolts... done deal...
     
  5. I got one and it works great, and is very useful as a place to boil something (not ribs) or just as an extra shelf..

    Smokewatcher, how does the CG plate attach to the firebox?

    I am also thinking that I can use this plate to set a brick on to hold the firebox lid down as when the coals/wood get going a bit the lid doesnt fit down completely.

    If you put the warming plate on the sfb can you open the lid on the sfb without removing what's on the warming plate? Thought about getting one myself.

    No, I believe you have to remove any items as the plate moves with the lid.

    does anyone know if the warming plate for a CG is heavy enough to hold the door shut on the SFB?
