Like anything with use, you discover little things that can be improved on. For indirect cooking and smoking, a heat shield is a necessary accessory. To a lesser extent, so is a pizza stone. The Pit Boss specific heat stone is only available on their website. With shipping, it’s $70. I didn’t like the placement of the Pit Boss Heat shield as it rested directly below the lower grate making the lower grate somewhat unusable. I was looking for a better way to accomplish the same thing with greater flexibility and for less cost.
Here’s my solution. I purchased a replacement lower charcoal grate for a Weber charcoal grill for $11. This grate is pretty heavy duty. Next I purchased (6) 1½” x 1½” angles with some fasteners for $5. I fabricated a “Z” hanger using the angles and bent a crimp in the top leg to lock it into place. These hang at 3 different locations on the fire box and support the grate. Next I purchased a high quality ¾” thick 14” diameter Cordierite pizza stone. The stone sits on the grate and acts as a heat shield. It can also be used as for cooking pizza by repositioning it to the Pit Boss lower grate. In addition, remove the heat shield/pizza stone and place charcoal on the Weber grate for a quick grilling of hamburgers and the like. This works great, offers total flexibility with a total cost was less than $55 including the pizza stone.
I saw the PitBoss grill in CostCo. Examined it and noted several nice differences between it and the Big Green Egg. The Pitboss comes with all stainless steel hardware and bolts on the hinge and rings. No rusting. The air intake on the bottom has no lip so ashes can easily be removed. It comes with a hinged double deck grate so you can add charcoal without removing the grates. It has a cast iron firebox grate. It also has an ash removal tool and cover. The wheeled nest is very sturdy and has locking wheels. The side trays are nice wood and sturdy. I added some thick rubber and felt bumpers to the back of them as to not damage the ceramic when stowed.
All in all a great grill vs the Big Green Egg for 1/2 or less the cost.
There are some great tips on the other reviews to bring your smoker up to BGE level. I added a few strips of felt on the bottom slide, it took 1 minute and a few extra dollars of felt. It did the trick, air tight. I am also going to add some extra felt to the top portion of the grill, I noticed some smoke coming out. I did a few dry runs in controlling the temp between 250-275, I was very surprised how effortless it was. I Smoked ribs for a few hours at 275 and temp did not fluctuate more than a few degrees. So if you are someone frugal like me and want to have your beer drinking toys to, this is a good option to consider.
One last note, the packaging it came it was second to none. Sturdy hard corigated cardboard, well packed inside, very happy what I saw at first sight of inspection. I hope this gives
you some guidance on purchasing your new grill, whatever you choose I am sure you will be happy with it. And a added bonus, this grill comes with a cover, not sure if that was in the description.
Used hardwood charcoal and by the second use my wife calls me the pit boss. Chicken, steaks and ribs are amazing. You can't do this with gas. I'm bragging to all my friends and they all want to try my food. I just tell them to bring some meat and I'll do the rest. This thing is amazing, easy and fast

It's harder to keep a low temperature than they let on. The lower vent is so loose and floppy that it lets in a lot of air even when fully...Read more
