Advice on new BGE

Discussion started on

So I bought a used small BGE to mostly bake and grill with. My question is about using something other than a place setter, since they dont make one for the small. I have seen the woo ring but really dont want to spend the money on that and the 10' stone and a 12' pizza stone. My idea is to use 2 12' rods to go from side to side and thru a 10' cast iron lid handle, upside down. Could even do like 4 bars across, not using the handle. Set the grill top on top of the lid and the pizza stone on top of that. I did a test setup with heavy duty skewers. Seems very stable. Just wondering what you guys think of using cast iron instead of a stone? Should disperse heat well.  Thanks

For cooking, lower and slower. For spices, mo' hotter, mo' better. Habaneros rule!
