My search for a Rib Rack

I have had a few in the past but none had sufficient volume between the sections and would end up being difficult to dislodge once the Ribs were finished. I found a design I like and went thru the process to order only to find out that an uncomfortable portion of the total would be shipping.

I thought perhaps I could skin this issue with volume and contacted the company but they would not budge. They did inform me that 3 units will fit in one box and this would help tame shipping cost a bit.

I was hoping to find other Dallas folks that may have an interest.

I suck at pictures but there is a link:

Don't know if this will help or not but here's one that I've been using a long time with my ECB and it probably came from Wally World. The other "newer one" my son gave me last year and I haven't used it yet but I really like the height and it looks like it should stand the racks up nicely.

I like Stainless Steel and that nice thick gage with a Lifetime warranty.

It also looks easy to clean!!

Should hold with ease the entirety of the Restaurant Depot Pork Rib Cryovacs that I use.

I bet this one cost less per ounce than the Wally World offering too!!

Thanks OldUsedParts,
They seem like nice enough folks out there in Guyton, GA. A contact from the Company has substantially lowered the shipping cost to the point where it is no longer a determining issue.

If someone with more skills than I could follow the link above and add a pic here it would be appreciated!!

My first attempt at the sites ubiquitous online shopping app yielded an order for a single Rack at their $39 price and upon advancing to shipping , an additional $26 & change shipping charge!!

Upon contacting the Company directly , the very helpful Leslie Tipton told me to give her a call when I was ready to place my order and arranged for 3 to be sent to me here in Dallas for a tad over $12 bucks in total shipping. A couple of other BBQ friends have expressed interest in my extra two.

Not a cheap Rib Rack by any means but I think I can make a case for a lot of bang for the buck ( go price stainless grills for instance ). I call them the "MOARR"
