Info
This recipe from Weber's Charcoal Grilling gave me a chance to try out the Half Moon Raised Grid for my BGE. This raised grid with a drip pan allows you to direct grill on the main grate and indirect grill on the raised grill grate. The slide in drip pan protects the food from direct exposure to the flame. The pork chops were cooked direct and indirect at 550 degrees, which is the highest I've ever cooked pork chops. Despite the high heat the pork chops turned out very moist and juicy. I "blame" this on the BGE and it's good seal & insulation properties. I look forward to many more high heat, grate sear cooks.
