One of the disadvantages of many ceramic cookers is how quickly they fill up when you're cooking for a small crowd. Of course, you can add additional grills for more space or you could upgrade to a massive XXL Big Green Egg. A third and inexpensive way to add more cooking surface to your ceramic grill is to add a second grate.
The Swing-Away Grate Stacker from Smokeware is a genius accessory that not only lets you add a second grate, but also swings out of the way for easily accessing the bottom grate.
This accessory is made of stainless steel and designed to hold a heavy load, so you don't have to worry about it breaking or bending when you fill it with meat.
One reviewer says, "This thing is a tank and handles heavy loads with ease. I've searched the web and looked everywhere for a stacker of this quality and durability and this is the best bar none. An excellent investment and timesaver especially for when I have family gatherings so I can maximize grilling space or when I only want to fire up one Egg to feed my family of 6."
