I took it off at 189F only because we were off doing the New Years Day plunge.  180F would have been a little better but it still came out great.

A Question For Fans Of The Weber Charcoal Go-Anywhere In Regards To The Grate Modification

I have a question for those of you that have modified the cooking grate to cut it in half so you can remove a portion of it to add coals without removing the food. Also they cut it so it can be packed flat in the bottom of the grill so they can transport a mini- chimney and other cooking tools.  Where do you cut it?

In videos I’ve watched, most people cut it right down the center.   I was thinking about cutting it 1/3- 2/3 and using the 2/3 section for the cooking area and 1/3 area for the section over where I’d add the coals.

Here’s a video demo by Mike Reyher describing how he modified and packs his Weber Charcoal Go-Anywhere-

I purchased this stainless replacement grate to do the mod with.  It gets reviewed as being a nice heavy true stainless grate (as opposed to a chrome plated steel one) but many customers said it was a touch too long to fit.  My guess is that’s why it’s such a cheap price, but seeing as I plan to cut mine to modify it anyway that’s not an issue.
