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.
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.
