Our reversible cast iron half grate, for the 20.5″ Goldens’ Cast Iron Cooker, gives you the ability to choose both the distance to the fire as well as the width of the cooking surface, with 330.6 square inches of cooker area. In the lower position, the grate provides a wide cooking surface for beautiful kamado grill marks with each sear. The upper position is ideal for smoking and grilling. The purchase of two additional grates adds a tiered-cooking option to your cast iron kamado cooker – perfect for smoking multiple racks of ribs at a time! Rack and stack!

Most 18″ ceramic cookers only allow roughly 16″ of cooking space, due to the thickness of the firebox. Goldens’ Cast Iron cast iron grates for 20.5″ cooker allows a full cooking surface by utilizing the cooker to its capacity, giving you a full 330.6 square inches of cooking area! Goldens’ Cast Iron Grates turn your kamado into a larger cooker while direct grilling. That means more room for more Ribeye’s!!!
And you don’t need those cheaply made stainless steel rack systems on our cooker. Our grates have built in feet that are 2.25 inches tall, raising your cooking area to the top! So not only do you get wider cooking area, you get a much higher cooker area, all in a single set of grates! Oh and we don’t notch our grates. Ceramic kamados notch their half grates to fit rack system, further losing precious cooking area!
Also, our half grates weight 12 pounds, while our ceramic counterparts offer only 8 pounds. Why does size matter? Given the thermodynamics of cast iron, it needs mass to absorb the heat off of lump charcoal. So the more mass, the better heat absorption and retention, giving you that perfect professional sear that you always wanted!
Goldens’ Cast Iron also produces grates for our cast iron 14″ kamados and grates for 18″ ceramic cookers! So if you don’t have our quality cast iron kamado, you can have real cast iron grates for your ceramic kamado! Tired of your ceramic kamado? Join the Iron Age!
