Adj. Rig vs Swing Rack

I am debating buying some type of grid system. I now use the fire brick trick to raise the grid and it works ok however, I would like something else mainly to obtain more room. I would like to hear pros & cons on the AR and the Swing Rack System. They both look very good to me and the prices are very close.

    I am giong to bump this post because I was interested in hearing comments from folks.  I really like the idea of being able to easily access food on the lower grate by swinging the upper grate out of the way, but I also like the versatility offered by the Customer Combo.

    Any pros and cons you are willing to share would be very helpful!

    I was going to post when you first did it but I clicked right after you made your decision. 

    I have the Swing Rack and love it. I believe it is the best option to fit my needs, since it allows more access to the bottom grate to flip things over, is just three pieces, and is built to last. It also works with my platesetter, that I had for years before I even knew about this forum. You can also get good sear marks with the carbon steel that works like cast iron. I even use the spider with the top tier of my swing rack to sear steaks right above the fire. I will be getting a Swing Rack for my small egg as soon as it comes out. 

    I have a woo for my small and spider for my large so I am not anti anyone, I just buy the best product that will fill MY needs.

  • I ordered the Adjustable Rig Combo from CGS yesterday...I'm new to Egging, but I want to have more grill space and I love doing ribs in my convection oven, so I can't wait to try to do them on my BGE!!
