The Weber Elevations Tiered Cooking System offers a simple solution to grill overcrowding.Weber

The fight for prominence on the grill can be a vicious one. The steak mauls the chicken while the vegetables argue on. And who knows what the pork is planning. How is such troublesome behavior ever to be overcome? The first answer, of course, is to give them their space. Even though everything gets all mixed up in your tummy anyway, that doesn't stop us from overcrowding the grill -- especially those first few grill sessions of the season, as we reacquaint ourselves with outdoor cooking.

There is a second solution. Look up. And skewer.

The Weber Elevations Tiered Cooking System grill rack and skewer set ($54.99) (currently $49.99 on Amazon) makes it easy. Consisting of a collapsible rack, the grill gadget makes it easy to position food at a variety of heights. The three-level rack features slots for the included skewers to be positioned as necessary. Just stack the skewers as normal and then slide the rack in as close to or as far from the flame as desired. Eight stainless steel skewers are included, allowing them to be raised above the grill surface, thus clearing the way for even more food.

Oh, and as for those troublesome loose veggies? An optional vegetable basket and frame is available.
