Bought the Weber Elevations Tiered Grilling System as I enjoy kebabs/kebobs etc. It was designed for the Spirit and Genesis grills, but fitted my EX4 perfectly and would fit in the EX6 no problems.

First time using it tonight on a breezy dark night, so was difficult to monitor colour of meat during cooking but they turned out pretty well as I cooked them to an IT of 165F, Took about 35-40 minutes at 350F started with 6 but ended up with 4 as 2 fell off the skewers but all part of the learning curve, put them on the skewers either to thick or to much moisture in the mixture, but that'll all come good with practice. Nice to be able to higher and lower them over the grill las needed and to turn them without the skewer spinning but not the meat.

Few photos of kebabs, and grilled Greek flatbreads and Tahini and this accessory for your Smokefire?

Looks like this is one of them damn products that are not easy to obtain in the US. Some sketchy looking Amazon seller has 2 available.
I really like that and will pick one up one day.
Was just telling the wife I need to do more skewers.
I have some great Steven Reichlen ones I picked up years ago. Maybe I’ll do some chicken this weekend.
Thanks for the info!!

Elevations was an item that didn’t take off for Weber for whatever reasons, so the discontinued the item. You can recreate the the system with any skewers and a couple props to elevate the skewers off the grid. Could be balled up foil or some heat deflectors off another Weber or some foil pans or even a couple bricks wrapped in foil. Those guys who have some old stock items that become popular after being 86’d can be ridiculous. Happy grilling.

It's a good little system but as you say, I'm sure something DIY'ed could be set up. You can buy the Weber skewers separately without the rack. They're very good solid and very long. I will probably add another set of 8 if needed in the future as the rack will hold at least 12 skewers probably sixteen

Haven't got it yet but you can buy an Expansion rack also to run along the top of it, to cook veg or as a warming rack if some cook skewers quicker than others.

Best cook I have done to appreciate how the flavorizer bars work and the finished flavour they give. For 30 minutes it was constant dripping fat from the skewers and hitting them and sending smoke back into the kebab from the minced beef and lamb, very tasty
