Looking for help...I'm in somewhat of a quandry...'s the dilemma...beginning to plan for my immediate family's Christmas dinner. Most likely will be doing a combination of baby backs & at least 1 butt. There are 11 of us, but 2 are children & will not eat much. I'm thinking 4 or 5 racks of ribs & (1) 7-8 lb butt + sides of course. I have a LBGE and have been trying to figure out an arrangement for said meats on the egg. The butt is not going to fit on the egg with the use of the rib rack that I have which brings me to the forum. I've been living on the ceramic grill store website and salivating over the AR with the spider, but I just can't seem to justify it for the occasional "large" cook. Normally I'm cooking for the wife & kids, not alot of need in that much cooking area, but now I'm needing more room. Does anyone have any other suggestions? I know there is a 3 tiered rack for use with the BGE, but not sure how adjustable it is...again, I WANT the AR w/spider, probably gonna bite the bullet for the spider anyway, but that leads to a whole other debate going on in my head lol (to buy at 1 whack or piece-meal it) Another issue is not being able to monitor dome temp. Looking to buy the thermoworks TW8060, but that means I'm spending $300+ on BGE toys right here at Christmas...somebody stop me or give me some alternative options please!!!!
