Any one here about or see the three tier swing grate from CGW? I just saw it on cgw Facebook page.  Looks real nice. I have a large. I sent him a message to see if it's just for the xl or the large also.

    image For those that already have our 2 tier, we are working on a method that will allow you to add or change your setup simply by adding an additional rack. Details will be on our web site. The pic above is an xl with a 24", 22" and 18" upper. This pic of a large has 2 18" with a 15" upper.

    Pretty sweet!!! I'm still trying to figure out my AR and now seeing this!  Definitely simpler. But looks a little less versatile too.

    Franco,
    I can't find these on the CGW website. Can you direct me to it. I'm interested in the two tier.
    Thanks

    Steve

    @brotheregg, once your at our site, enter the webstore it's the first product listed, or simply call me and I'll walk you along.

    @thatgrimguy, not sure how you mean by less versatile?? I don't want to get into a discussion about here as it'll appear I'm selling, so either call me directly, email me or jump on our forum.

    I don't see less versatile.

    The AR an the Swing rack are totally different beast. Both doing some different things.

    I didn't mean to downplay what is obviously a very well made tool.   I apologize.

    @thatgrimguy....I didn't mean to imply you down played it, apology not needed.
    :-bd

    @bigphil, spacing is adjustable depending on what your needs are. Sadly, we'll have to keep the testing in house for now.....but thanks for offering.

    That will all be based on the new shaft for this system.  Max height has not yet been determined. The pic posted above is showing about 4-5" between the grates, this is in prototype form for now.

    I thought maybe it was just for the XL. So you may introduce one for the large down the road?

    This maybe a crazy observation, but wouldn't two of the grate extender's (group buy) do the exact same thing?

    Looks like the CGW has the same main pivot point (top to bottom). The design of the group buy extender would not allow you to connect top to middle and middle to bottom in exactly the same place. Whether that's important, I can't say but balance could be a real issue with the group buy extender trying to triple deck it.

    With a little work, yes, but may not be quiet as sturdy as one long shaft.

    Also depends what you want. I already have a two tier. I would rather just add to it. Also, this is just my opinion but if your looking for a cast iron grate you may as well spend the extra money and get the swing grate. Then your getting two solid grates that cook like cast iron grate.

    All what you want and want to spend.

    @smokeyj......exactly my thought process when I decided on the CGW swing grate.  I wanted a two-tier that expanded cooking space and was well built and easy to use and maneuver mid cook and also something I could sear on.

    I'll really consider getting the third tier when it becomes available.  Just have to determine if I really need the extra grid space.
