    Will the AR adequately allow me to cook on two levels at one time, both direct and indirect? I checked out their website and honestly I believe they provide so much information, I keep confusing myself.
    Short answer: yes

    I just got my AR R&B combo with the AR Rig Extender.  I also opted for an additional oval grate option with the AR Extender after talking with Tom on the phone.  I have used it the last two weekends, doing 30lbs of wings indirect on two levels last weekend (several rounds...not all at once) and a single level cook last night/this morning with 3x 6lb pork butts. 

    The set up all together isn't the cheapest way to cook raised multi-level, but after weighing options and thinking about it for awhile, I am so happy I bought this set up.  I highly recommend calling CGS and talking to Tom.  He will answer any questions you have and help you with what would be the right set up for you.

    I've messed around with most everything mentioned here but for me the mapp torch and lighting 3 spots on the top of pile of lump works best imo.
  • Re: Looking for small

    I bought a very lightly used small almost a year ago on CL for $160 with nest.  After inspecting for any cracks, I couldn't get the $ out of my pocket fast enough and the egg loaded up in the back of my truck.
