KillaGrilla grate and chicken wings?
« on: April 15, 2018, 11:04:52 AM »
Hi folks! Iím considering upgrading the grate on my 26Ē kettle to the KillaGrilla grate. My only concern is that I make a lot of chicken wings and Iím worried about the gap spacing. Can someone with a KillaGrilla grate confirm for me that this isnít a problem? I donít want my wings falling through and I donít want to keep two grates around.

Thanks!

Welcome to WKC.

I don't have that grate but it's hard to imagine wings would fall through. And you couldn't turn them perpendicular?
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

With the vortex, the wings always point to the center so there will be a few that line up directly with the gap.

The rest shouldnít be a problem.

I have the 26" Killa Grilla grate with two flip up doors (KG9245 - made for vintage 26er's). The spacing between the grate rods is 1/2" as are all on all the Killa Grilla grates.   I don't cook chicken wings by themselves but my guess is it is possible a wing could slip through the gap if a person was careless.  I have been using my 22" Killa Grilla grate for over a year now.  Only thing I lost through the gap was a sliced zucchini once.  I use a spatula now with zucchini instead of tongs.

Can you clarify if that is 1/2" center to center or 1/2" gap between rods?

@pbe gummi bear - 1/2" gap between the rods.
