Did my first cook with the AR. Went with @SmokeyPitt sugestion and went on the naked whiz site. Did a spatchcock chicken nothing on it then underneath it was potatoes with peppers and onion and garlic. It was awesome.

    @Charle tuna it was around a 4 and a half lbs.
    @shtgunal3 I recommend just getting it. I waited but finally did it and I love it

    I need a three level cooking surface for my large egg.  I presently have the three tiered BGE grid, but i don't like the center post because i want to cook pans of veggies and also have the ability to remove them during the cook???

    @Charlie tuna I would look into the AR they have some good stuff that might work for you. Check out the web site at ceramicgrillstore.com

    I know I'm beating a dead horse but after you look at all of the amazing things on the ceramicgrillstore.com website actually call them and talk to Tom.  He will help you get exactly what will work for the types of cooks you intend to do.

    Awesome cook!  Those veggies look great basted in all that yummy chicken fat. 

    <homer> Mmmmmmmmm.  Chicken Fat. </homer>


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    OK, My BGE had been packed too long for the move. Those first 2 pics are real food porn.
    New phrase: Spread chicken?  
    Bx - > NJ ->TX!!! 
    All to get cheaper brisket!

    I've been holding off on the AR for some time now but my b day is coming up and I think I'm going to have to put it on the list.
    I knew all the rules, but the rules did not know me.

    I've had mine a few months, and it's used for almost every cook. Also, my spide seldom leaves the Egg. I love raised direct, and reverse sear for so many things. In fact, I just ordered the grid extender with sliding grid and an extral oval one today. Multiple ribs, butts, or anything will be so easy now. If you're reading this thread and still flip flopping. JUST BUY IT!!! :D

    Risking a punch in the face from the boss... I am just about to pull the trigger on both an AR and a Swing Rack.

    Thinking my next egg is almost going to have to be a Large so I can share / store accessories

    That would be a great thing Hap, hopefully you can pull a punch from the boss.
