Very nice rig. I would love to have a 22. Do you have a rib hanger?

Not yet, but considering one for the summer. Thereís a round one that looks really good from bbqmods and a few on Amazon.

Iíve got the Weber and gateway hanging racks. I think this one looks like the best.

That one does look nice.  I'm leaning toward the round one though from the same company.  Looks possibly easier to raise and lower meat once you have a few slabs or chicken halves on there.

The one I linked seems to be the best of the Weber and the gateway hangers. Adjustable bars, but no falling off or getting lost. Highest capacity too, with up to 5 bars vs 2 gateway and 3 Weber.

I will say the I have no issues placing or pulling hole chicken or full rack pork rib from my gateway hanger.

The more I look at that one with the movable bars the more I like it.  Definitely under consideration, thanks so much!

Will this hold a cyber a or flame boss 500?

Got it cheap, upgraded to the max.... lid hinge, new front door, handles, SS water bowl, Arborfab charcoal basket, unknown BBQ temp unit holder, Cajun Bandit lower clips kit, fire dial and all nuts/bolts changed to Stainless Steel..... happy!

What's the metal deal by the right handle? For temp probes? I'm stupid I don't know Arbrorfab .

Temp unit holder, folds out and holds my maverick unit....has a magnet built in to hold it to the smoker when not in use....

I have no idea about those.  I have only used the holder with my Maverick XR-50 and it works well.
