Best set up for st. louis style ribs

edited June 2012 in EggHead Forum
I have a large BGE...what is the best set up for 3 racks of st. louis style ribs? Do I need a grill rack extender?

    I did St. Lous style ribs for the first time last weekend.  I could fit two of them flat on the grate and then I rolled the third rack up into a spiral, held together by a toothpick.  All 3 racks turned out great and there was no difference between the ones I had layed flat vs. the one rolled up.

    I would say there are 3 ways to fit St. Louis ribs on a large without huge investment:

    1. use a rib rack (got mine at wally world for $4ish)

    2. cut one rack in half so that you have 2 halfs on outside and 2 wholes on inside

    3. buy another 18" cooking grid and some plain clay bricks wrapped in aluminum foil.  I will go original grid, 2-3 "fire" bricks, then sent 2nd grid on top.  That is a $15 way to get 2-level cooking

    I use a rib rack everytime I do more than two racks on the LBGE.  They cook just like laying them flat.  I usually turn them over about mid cook.
