GrillGrates: “Kamado Owners Have Embraced GrillGrates! Big Green Egg owners were taking hack saws to cut GrillGrates to fit their Eggs. Now we offer three “kits” of cut to fit GrillGrates for standard Kamado grills: 15”, 18”, and 24” diameter grills. The cut to shape GrillGrates interlock and lay on top of the existing grid. GrillGrates do the same magic for Kamado grills; they concentrate and radiate heat, sizzle back juices and protect during hot and fast grilling.”
High-Que: “The First Stainless Steel Charcoal Fire Grate Upgrade for Your BGE”. By now, most eggheads have heard about the new High-Que replacement fire grates and swear by them.

More air to the lump to promote a better fire, no fires dying mid-cook due to lack of oxygen, and no more wiggle rodding.

Looftlighter: “The original Looftlighter is a Swedish patented invention that lights your charcoal grill or fireplace with super-heated air in 60 seconds without lighter fluid. It can also ”fast-forward” your charcoal or briquettes and make it possible to start cooking in just a couple of minutes. The Looftlighter ignite anything from charcoal to wood with the touch of a button. And the Looftlighter eliminating lighter fluid from the process not only makes summer nostalgia more pure, but cuts down on the toxic fumes, the production of the petroleum-based product, and burn injuries resulting from unattended fires. The Looftlighter eliminates the need for lighterfluid. The patented hot airstream process eliminates the chemical taste that unfuses food on barbecues lit useing lighter fluid and gas. Chefs can now achieve the clean taste of their grilling and smoking recipes.”
