Question about an adjustable rig

I am finally going to pull the trigger on an adjustable rig after 3 years of hillbilly fabricating cooks with bolts, washers and bricks. I have a Lg BGE and was looking at the website and was wondering if I need the16.5 inch grid or the 13 x 17in grid. What do you all have and which one is more versatile?  Thank you all


  • I have the oval. I bought it because I love ribs and thats the best setup for ribs. I've also done other stuff like butts on it, but the round setup is prolly better for that. Contact Tom at CGS. He'll talk you through it.

    Oval is ideal for ribs and brisket so you don't have them overhanging onto a hot zone. Round would be best for multiple butts, but I believe I can get two butts on the oval and that's probably the most I'll ever do.

    R&B Combo with oval stone and grid. Add the rig extender. Will be around $200. I called Tom and that is the setup he suggested for me. Great guy just call him. I am about to place my order.

    I did the R&B Combo last year. Can't believe I waited so long. Just pulled the trigger on the AR extender combo. Another great purchase.
