I bought a couple for standing my ribs up to save space but am now doubting myself as to weather they are safe?
Hello Bob. Well this is a bugger bear for me. That toast rack was never meant to be put into an oven or a smoker. How thick is the chrome coating? Is it chrome? Or just some shiny plating? I agree with dirtsailor in that IF it is chrome you may be alright; but is it and what quality coating is it? I know I am a "worry wart", but I would not use it. Keep Smokin!
Here is another one that is similar to the ones I use. It is more expensive than the one Steve posted though... £17.50 inc P&P
Steve's one from IKEA looks great for the price. It does have some plastic feet on it but they should be easy to remove. It is certainly adjustable but it also looks quite big from the IKEA photo. With all of those scissor joints it could be difficult to clean but I expect it would go in the dishwasher.
Be careful of the size when you buy one. I have bought ones in the past that are too big to fit into the smoker with whole racks of ribs loaded. The one below is the Weber rib rack in one of my 22.5" kettles. As you can see it only just fits in there.
