I am looking for an extender and grid for my large egg.
Mostly for butts and ribs.

But... wow there are my options...

What do you recommend?

    ill second the adjustable rig/spider/stone combo...everything you could need to multi, even tri level cooks. If you've got the platesetter, the BGE extender isn't bad, but I've also heard success with people buying a weber grid and some stainless bolts and washers

    Or a Weber grill with bricks.
    But the adjustable rig does seem the most flexible.

    All to get cheaper brisket!

    A hard decision.
    I have the BGE platesetter - so go after an original extender?

    Have been looking at - but must say that i am having a very hard time wrapping my head around what i need there...

    My wish: 2 grates for butts, 3 grats for ribs.

    But then i need stone?, spider?, rig?, 2 grates?

    It's not the simplest web page of all :-)

    I used a weber grid with 4" stainless bolts, fender washers and investment about $20.  Works great.

    Threreare tons of options out there. I was considering the swing rack ceramic setup, but decided on the AR. I just ordered the Adjustable Rig "CustomerCombo" and am pretty excited about it. Unfortunately, it's not compatible with the plate setter that I already have, so I'm going to have to get rid of that.

    Happy shopping.
