    Hit the search feature here and put in PS Woo.  You will get numerous threads that have comments regarding each of your options.

    I have a woo and an adjustable rig. I recommend the woo as it gets more use, but the AR is great too if more options are needed.

    I bought the BGE version, but here is what I know.  I think the CGS PS Woo is easier for adding and removing a plate setter.

    The PS Woo does three things:
    1.  Gives you a basket when using the plate setter.  Nice for removing the plate setter mid cook.
    2.  With or without the plate setter, it allows you to cook "raised".  It puts your grid at the felt line.
    3. allows you to add a second level by purchasing separately the PS Woo extender.

    The Adjustable rig does the following:
    1.  Allows multiple levels.  
    2. requires the use of stones as your heat deflector.


    If he already owns a Plate Setter (ConvEGGtor), I would recommend the PS Woo and PS Woo extender.

    If he doesn't have a Plate Setter, get an adjustable rig, a bunch of stones, and a bunch of extra grids.

    Good luck!

    I have been using a P.S. Woo with an extender for years on my large BGE.  Perfect setup for me, and us it for almost every cook.

    I love my Adjustable Rig but I definitely use my Woo more often as it’s mostly raised direct cooking I like.

    Should have asked this earlier. Does your grandson already own a platesetter?
    Thank you,

    I have the PS Woo and the extender, but decision was made more by the fact that I already had a platesetter rather than a preference over the adjustable rig. Definitely one of the best BGE related purchases I've made.

    I’ve got the plate setter and have been going 6+ years with the PSWOO2 and grate extender. Love it. It’s especially useful for wings and pork belly burnt ends.

    I just got my second Woo from Tom.   

    When I got my first one for the LG it was the PS Woo style, not long after I hated trying to put the Platesetter in it and just bought the oval stone instead.  So this set up was one half (90% of cooks) and when needed the oval or just raised grid.

    I just got an XL so I went to Tom and got a Woo and two half stones.  Platesetter in the garage to likely never be used again.
