    While i may not classify as a "man in the trenches" yet as i don't have my egg just yet but I do know that the 13" stone  and spider make for a set-up that allows for three level cooking up on the rig.I love my sliding D grid and the extra oval grid makes ribs very easy!!! Who doesn't love ribs eh?
    Hows ya gettin' on, me ol ****?

    I'd suggest oval grids, both the long "rib" stone and the the thirteen inch stone to put down on the spider. Basically buy it all. I don't have the "rib" stone yet but if you have any interest in doing packer briskets it looks to be the best option.

    travisstrick what do you mean, You just got all of it? Everything for the AR or what? Madgine it was a bunch of $'s. I talked to Tom this week and asked him about buyin a complete set and he said they don't offer one so I would madgin a guy would have to buy a combo set then add everything else? So I take it you have everything for an AR could you pse PM me ur list???? I do like the idea of having everything to do whatever I need to do

    @travisstrick- any pics of your set up? I want to do this one time and it sounds like you have what I want to buy.

    I have two of the ARs, oval setup, with the extender, and oval ceramic, grease ring, and extra grids.  I can't even begin to say how well they work or how versatile.  The oval works for all, was designed for briskets, ribs, long stuff.  Tom , at Ceramic Grill ?, was quite helpful in steering me in the purchases, limiting my wrong or excessive buys.

    Cleanup is a breeze, either I put the egg on full fire, or mostly just transfer to an adjacent grill, covering with foil, and 15 min later...clean.

    I second for pics of guys setup and equip. It can get confusing on the cgs website as to whats a what. I have it pretty figured out now but see others always asking as well. ( the extra cross bars, slide guides) got my head spinning as to what does one really get with the combo and what does one really need.

    I know canman had a nice pic of his setup and all included in another thread.

    Ok,I'll try to get pics of the ARs, but I recommend calling Tom at CGW, he has been very helpful in the setups, he apparently does not want anyone to buy to much, ie start slow.
