Large Adjustable Rig Sliding Oval Combo includes: Large Adjustable Rig with Pair Crossbars, 13"x17" Oval Ceramic Stone, Large Slide Guide with Crossbar & 13"x17" Oval Stainless Grid.
Rig Extender, Oval Grid & Foil Ring Option: Let's you slide the lower grid in/out at the felt line. Best set-up to smoke 4 racks of baby backs or St. Loius style ribs. Our favorite place to grill butterfly (spatchcock) chicken and bake pizza is atop the Rig Extender. These are the same pieces as in the Large Extender Combo for R & B and discounted for savings.
If you love babyback ribs or brisket and won't do big (3+) pork butt cooks, then this combo package might be for you. We include all the necessary pieces to smoke the long meat cuts. Plus, not to worry, the conventional one grid cooks are still possible.
Platform: The large Adjustable Rig with Pair of Crossbars is the base platform for your cooks. The Rig sits on the fire ring. Use the Crossbars to set stones, pans, grids and such 1.5, 3.0 and 4.5 inches above the fire ring. The Rig positions the large 18" stock grid 6" above the fire ring.
Indirect Piece: We designed our exclusive 13x17 Oval Ceramic Stone to extend indirect coverage under longer meat cuts. The Oval shape provides extended protection with minimal impact on air circulation. For indirect cooks, we recommend setting the Oval Stone on the Rig's lowest bracket setting, approximately 1.5" above the fire ring. Having it up and off the fire ring opens up the top of the fire ring. We also recommend using foil on the Oval Stone to catch drippings.
Large Slide Guide: Our exclusive Slide Guide rail system lets the 13"x17" Oval Stainless Grid slide in and out for easy food handling. It's as easy as sliding an oven rack in your oven. We recommend setting the Slide Guide on Level 3.0, middle bracket setting.
Cooking Grid: We include the 13"x17" Oval Stainless Grid and recommend setting it on the Slide Guide for easy in and out. The large 18" stock grid will go on top the rig for the second cooking grid. With this set-up, you can do at least four racks of babyback/st. louis ribs (ribs lay flat for easy foiling & saucing), two brisket flats or a flat/packer combination, two pork butts, 2-4 spatchcock chickens and a bunch of grillin’! To access the lower Oval Grid, you'll need to pull the Rig but it's a quick and easy move.

Please note, the Slide Oval Combo weighs approximately 16 pounds without food. If that is more than you can handle safely, you might consider the Large Adjustable Rig Customer Combo where you can build the indirect set-up on the Spider.

I had my BGE about 8 months when I finally decided to buy the AR R&B combo for my large Egg. It has really changed the way I cook. Not only have I drastically increased the amount of cooking space I have available, but the ability to go from indirect to direct for reverse searing has changed the way I plan and cook meals. Now that I have it, I don't know how I got along without it for so long. You too will not be disappointed. Shipping to Canada unfortunately isn't cheap, but we all know CGS has no control over that. Shipping was my main reason for delay. Don't let it be yours. I've not regretted it for a second.

I spoke to a representative on the phone who adviced me on which product to buy (R&B Combo). I felt like he had my best interests at heart and believe this to be a reputable company. Shipping was quick and I got the rig just in time for Labor Day weekend grilling. The rig allows you to make maximum use of the limited space in the Large BGE. I already cooked a Spatchcock Chicken and was very happy with the results. Next up are two Boston Butts!

I'd be lost without this thing. The ability to remove everything with a single lift is amazing. Now whenever I need to make adjustments to the meat I simply lift the Rig out and close the BGE dome. The dome temp stays under control and I can take my time with the cook.
It's also very easy to throw wood chunks in while the rig is in the cooker because of the gap the 13X17 indirect stone allows.
It's unbelievable how sturdy this unit is too. I've had this loaded up with 2 13 lb briskets and had no problem lifing the whole thing out (stone and all). It makes cooking and even greater experience.

Package arrived, very neat and well packed.. I believe this is a reflection of a company that takes pride in the quality of their products. For a LRG BGE, this is a must (added the Rib Extender.. excellent!) The setups are so versatile and easy.. and fun!

I really like my new R&B combo. My first use of this product sold me, cooking multiple pork butts and multiple racks of ribs at the same time! Being able to remove the cooked ribs without bothering the butts is great. This is a quality product and designed for ease of use. Next weekend I am going to use it for a brisket.

I've had my adjustable grid for over a year, and each time I use it, I love it all over again. The versatility is the best part, no... the quality is the best part.... no, the customer service is the best part ...... There are no bad parts! It's all good. You won't be sorry.

I've had this for about 6 to 8 months, I'm not even sure where my OEM grid has gone. This setup works great on everything ribs, chicken, chicken wings, pork butts ABT's you name it. I think the oval stone is 10 times better than a round one. No more over cooked tips on ribs!!

I got an R&B combo with a rib extender last month. Used it this weekend in a contest to cook two butts and three racks of baby backs. Worked great and we improved 20 places compared to last year.
