Upper Cooking Rack for Jr.

Recommended Posts

K'man, thank you for this post.  Your post is one of the main reasons I pulled the trigger on the Jr.  This DIY add-on just gives you so much more room and makes the grill so much more personal

Just so I can avoid walking through the store with my grate, is the correct pipe nipple size 3/4" or 1"? I see both referenced in this thread. Thanks!

 

It's 3/4"X4 and then you'll have to grind a bit off the threads of the nipple to get a nice fit.

Thanks! Lucky enough to be able to throw it on a lathe, just wanted to make sure I get the correct size.

That's even better.  You want to stop the upper grate from tilting forward.  You might need a collar or a pin.  You'll see when you are doing the fitment.

Thanks! I was thinking I would try and find a washer to weld on for a collar similar to the one on the full size Akorn. Two covers and stones are on the way, now to find some black PVC to make legs for the Jr my child as not already claimed as her ground-level barbecue.

Don't forget to post some pics of your mods.

BTW, if you're like me and have no access to tools and no welding experience you could buy the necessary parts and bring it to a local muffler shop and have them do it.  They might charge you 10-15 bucks shouldn't take more than 20 minutes to do.  Fortunately for me, I have a buddy that will be helping me with this.  I'll post picks as soon as it's done.
