Rated #1 in Rib Racks


Cons: Poor welding done

I read great reviews for this rack, and I was greatly disappointed when I purchased one. If the rack has 4 slots, or 6 slots, make them all usable. Before I even got the rack out of the wrapper, the rack broke apart.I didn't bother to contact Amazon as I wasn't in the mood to quibble. I recently saw one that was heavy duty, more like cast iron, with a significantly higher cost.

Thinking back, next time I see the heavy duty one, I'll buy it. No more worries about cheaply made crap.



Pros: keeps ribs apart and allows airflow between, holds three slabs vertically plus 6 potatoes, easy cleanup

Cons: could have added another slab spot, instead of the potato holders (not really a con)

I have 3 other rib racks. This one is my choice due to it's design. It is the only rib rack I've found that actually holds the slabs apart so as to allow for airflow. This is very important when smoking because you want the smoke and heat to be evenly distributed across all slabs. I have an MES 40 with an AMNPS. With 4 of these racks, I can stand up 3 full St Louis cut slabs on each of the 4 racks. That's 12 slabs done, in 6-8 hours, after setting it and forgetting it! They all get done evenly and the smoke permeates every slab the same. It's the "must have" rib rack.

Char-Broil 4740 Potato-and-Rib Rack

Char-Broil's Potato and Rib Rack cooks ribs and potatoes faster and more evenly. Typically, the rack is used on charcoal grills or with a water smoker in which the food is being cooked more slowly over lower temperatures. It can definitely be use on gas grills as well. It has a heavy duty wire construction, is dishwasher safe, and rust resistant.
