Double Grate UDS ?'s

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

For those of you who have dual cooking grates in your UDS, how far apart are they and what is the temperature difference between them

Interested in this answer as well

Mine are 8 inches apart and I don't really notice a temp difference although I haven't done much tracking to see. I have a weber lid so my top grate is only 2" down. If you have a flat lid that would lower both grates and might cause the bottom grate to run hotter.

I have the flat lid and mine are 7 inches down and 6 inches apart. The lower grate is 20 or so degrees hotter. I just plan accordingly and use two probes for temp.

Mine are adjustable. I can space the racks in 1" increments.

6 inches with a flat lid low enough for pork butts on the top rack?

my top rack is 7 inches down and yes I can get a 12 pounder in there. I don't think I have tried a bigger one but this one was that big and it fit.
