Frogmats - What size ?
« on: May 03, 2017, 10:52:29 pm »
I want to buy some frogmats from yard&pool, but need to know what size fits our Bradley racks.  Unfortunately, I am away from home due to work, and cannot measure my racks.  Can someone help me out with the measurements?

I am looking for the size of the bottom of the rack, for a frogmat to lay flat on the rack.  Then also curious about what size I would need to go up the sides to form a "basket" so to speak, so it would cover the bottom and all sides.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!  I want to order my frogmats so they are waiting for me when I get home.

Thanks!!!

The size you need is 10" x 13".

Thank you.  So the 10x13 will lay flat in the bottom of the Bradley rack, correct?  Then add 3 or 4 more inches both ways if I want to roll it up the insides....probably?

Thanks for your help!!

Are you rolling up the sides for smoking small things like nuts or something?  You don't want meat to touch the side and have grease running down the walls and risking a fire.

For smoking nuts and similar small things I use cheesecloth on top of the Frog Mats.

TedEbear....you are correct.  Looking to smoke nuts, seeds and Chex Mix so I figured rolled up the sides would be best.  I will not be using them for any type of meat products.  I want to cut the corners, roll them up the sides and zip tie the corners together to form a basket that can be easily dropped into the rack.  I saw a posting where another member did this.  Looks like it works pretty slick.

Thanks !!

You can do it that way. One member did. He had to slit them at the corners to get the sides to fold properly, and the bottom to lay flat. Then he bond them at the corners with something. I just use the 10x13 flat on the bottom then I line the sides of the racks with aluminum foil, so the nuts don't fall out of the sides.
