Do you need the Cajun expansion ring for the rotisserie and ribulator? I've been planning on getting vortex, but I'm thinking that the rotisserie and ribulator would be cool to have. What other benefits to expansion ring?

Thanks B-one!

Yes you need to buy it all.the only other benefit I could think of you could most likely rig another rack in there maybe stacked but never really looked into it as I bought it only thinking of rotisserie and Ribolator. It's a no brainier triple play of fun but if on a budget get the Ribolator last it would be very handy for apps or similar items for a party!

Here are some pictures of my new Fire Butler.


This is the replacement for the charcoal grate.


The fire basket without searing grate, this would be the set up for low and slow.



With the searing plate in place, this puts the charcoal super close to the grate for a great sear!


The Lid/Griddle with this in place you can cook many different ways both low and slow and high heat griddle cooking.


With the main grate in place. I hope to post a cook with the Fire Butler this weekend.

Thanks for looking!

40 bucks for the ash catcher kit? I paid 27 for mine. I am most likely getting the Santa Maria add-on by Gabby's Grills.

Yeah that price was for shipping and tax plus the price of 27.99! And I also was looking at the Santa Maria add-on.

What you think about this version? Here's their description of the New Attachment.
[h2]Product Description[/h2]
Enjoy the new 22″ Gabbys Grills Rotisserie/Santa Maria Style Combo

We’ve combined the uniqueness of our 22 in Santa Maria style attachment with a fabulous Rotisserie kit, easy to assembly. This grill comes with everything you see in this photo for the knock out price of only $349 with free shipping. The Rotisserie functions with DC adaptor or battery operated, all included with this kit! Personally designed bracket are mounted to the side of gabbys grill to offer three levels of rotisserie enjoyment. These brackets are precisely placed not to interfere with high adjustment of the cooking grill. You can rotisserie a chicken one day then simply lift off the rotisserie kit and barbeque your delicious steaks with ease. This new designs operates as both a Santa Maria/Crank style grill or rotisserie. WOW!

Never had any of the fancy accessories, but I still have the one Dad gave me in '95. It's not so pretty any more, what with the 1by 2s replacing the disintegrated handles and the gaffer's tape holding the legs on, but it still cooks like a new one. It's hard to beat a Weber Kettle....

You know what......I am not into rotisserie. I have just never cared for it. I do not think it gives any better taste or tenderness. I will probably order it as a basic unit.

Make sure you get the grate that folds up at the sides so you can add briquets or wood on indirect cooking!
