Arteflame...Meet Summit
« on: June 11, 2018, 04:21:46 PM »
So I just couldnít let eBayís 20% off coupon go unused. This just arrived today, and itís a friggin beast!  Made of 3/8Ē Steel.  I need to season it first, but Iím really looking forward to cooking on this. Iíll be sure to post pics when I do.  FYI, the center hole is the same size as the gourmet grate.

Got one for a 22.5" but haven't used the griddle or sear grate for almost a year.

Why not?

Yours is from a different company, Titan Attachments. Same idea, but $10 or so cheaper. Their eBay page: https://www.ebay.com/str/titanattachments

I wanna say the one by Arteflame is more like 1/4Ē?

Letís see some cooks on it!

I did notice the Titan version on Amazon. Ratings werenít good. Not sure why. For the Arteflame, the 22s are 1/4 inch but the 26s are 3/8 inch steel. They were originally intended for the BIg Green XXL and they made them thicker to withstand higher heat without warping.

I just prefer to use a cast  iron griddle and for searing a stainless gbs insert.

This is more or less how I've used the Arteflame in the past.  GBS grate with  1 1/4" legs on top.

Looks like that grate could use just a touch more seasoning.

If you use enough heat there's really no amount of seasoning that will stand a chance. I've gone strictly on stainless when it comes to searing.  My go to searing grate is a summit gbs insert. Easy clean up and no rust.

Spent a few hours getting it good and seasoned. Should be ready to cook.

Oops, sorry about that. Youíre right! At first I thought I saw a ďTĒ but itís not that. https://m.ebay.com/itm/Titan-Weber-Style-Grill-Insert-w-Center-Grate/292499988036?hash=item441a5b9e44:m:maob6IICo5eGXRZqwIvvPxg

@Jules V.
Can I ask where you are finding a SS GBS grate?
Thanks!

A friend picked up 3 ss gbs grates from the Philippines.  Whopping $120 each.   I also picked up a Summit and  a Genesis  #7585  &  #7587 on clearance for $35 & $25 just for the purpose of using the center grate.  The rods on the 7585 are massive at almost 3/8" thick.  Should last a lifetime no matter how much heat you throw at it.
