3+ level Cooking on LBGE

Has anyone been able to get more than 3 levels of cooking on the egg?  I saw someone do a "spiral" of ribs to fit SO many on the egg.  I love the quality the egg produces but want to be able to cook many many things at the same time.  Pics if you can, but anything would be appreciated.

    I have seen the AR before and it looks really good.  How many levels have you gotten, Cen-Tex? 2? 3?  more?  (sorry I am so dense)
  • Don't have one yet but looks like to does 3 depending on thickness. Most guys use it as a double for doing 2 briskets or butts. Think you could do 3 for ribs

    I have the AR with the rig extender and can do 3 levels. I also have the Woo3 extender that i often use with the AR to get the 3rd level.

    I've got the adjustable rig and the BGE grid extender, I've done 2 levels of butts with ribs on top. You'll be surprised how much you can actually fit in there.

    I think I have about every product from ceramic grill store. Are there some objects you want put on each level and take a photo for you?

    I would love to have multiple eggs, but funds not currently available.  I agree that there is significant vertical space.  Any pictures would be great.  So I am guessing from bottom-to-top, it would go:
    1.5" - Ceramic Stone

    3.0" - Standard Grid

    4.5" - Dual grid w/ extender.

    Please let me know if I have something wrong.
