So a few weeks ago, I bought a grill extender. I wanted to be able to cook on multiple levels (brisket and ribs, for example).
I could have bought the 3-level thing, but I decided against that, as it has a pole right in the middle of it. That seems to render it unusable for big cuts of meat.
So I got the Grill Extender instead. However, it doesn't work too well, as it sags when there is a lot of weight on it.
I recently found out about the Spider and the Adjustable Rig. Now, I'll admit to being pretty ignorant (only had my egg for 3 months), it seems like $150 is a lot to pay for the adjustable rig. It seems like it doesn't do a whole lot that a platesetter and a GOOD grill extender-type thing would do. It also seems that having the heat-deflector stone set so low in the firebox would prevent you from using a lot of charcoal. (I guess I also don't want to pay another $150 on top of the $75 that I already paid for the platesetter, if it will make my platesetter obsolete.)
Ergo, I wonder--what's the best way to get the raised level of a Grill Extender, so I can cook on multiple levels? I want to be able to cook a brisket (or two), babyback ribs, and potatoes/corn all at the same time.
