Lower Draft Door With Screen

I have a 2015 Classic Joe with the the integrated ash pan. Does anyone know of a direct bolt on replacement lower draft door that includes a spark screen slider? I have my grill on a composite deck and I would like some added protection. I know the ash pan doubles as a screen but far better to be safe than sorry. 

 

Thanks for any help,

Yeah, I hear you. I have often wondered why KJ, with all it's inovation, does not provide a screen for the bottom vent. I cook on a large BGE and also cook on a composite deck. The stock screen, IMO, provides a lot of protection from falling coal fragments and peace of mind, as well . I have no idea what the size of a KJ bottom vent is  but the vent  screen on my large Egg is 5 & 3/4 long and 3 &1/4 high, maybe a BGE screen will fit or can be modified to fit.  Best of luck.

I have an older KJ and it has a spark screen. It is before D C. I do not use mine but am cooking on the ground.  IMO for some reason they made a choice that it was not something that most people needed or would use.

Perhaps I could still order the older style door from KJ as a direct replacement for mine? I do some overnight cooks from time to time so i'd like an extra measure of protection.

Turns out the width of the lower draft door is EXACTLY the same as the Medium / Large BGE. The length of the BGE is longer however and needed to be trimmed. I bought an aftermarket stainless steel BGE perforated steel door  [Dracary] that fit perfectly once shortened  by about an inch and looks factory. The screen version is also available.
