Looking For A Sturdy Rib Rack

I'm looking for a sturdy rib rack that holds 4 or 6 racks of St. Louis style ribs. I'm currently condidering the Weber Stainless Steel, Sur la Table SS, and Williams Sonoma SS, and would appreciate recommendations of these or other racks. Thanks.

Re: Looking For A Sturdy Rib Rack

I have a regular old Weber rack and it is indestructible. Worthless for cooking but its durable. I much rather just pack em in there and move em around than mess with using that crazy gizmo. I hate it. In fact I would give it to ya if I could remember where I put it. Hope this helps.

Re: Looking For A Sturdy Rib Rack

I find that racks burn the ends, and the juices run off instead of selfbasting the ribs

Just me ideas

I wondered about that myself - especially the loss of moisture. I'm going to keep looking (no luck yet) for a horizontal rack that fits a 18.5 WSM with a couple inches of clearance. Anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Looking For A Sturdy Rib Rack

Well whut really turned me against the evil bastids was the factoid that the ribs on the outside block off the heat from them on the inside. And like the man say you still got to flip them edge to edge to keep the bottom from getting too crispy. I think they were invented by the debil..along with panty hose and neckties.

True Nick. When I use my Klose racks, which is almost never, I spray them with pam and put them in the dishwasher. They are all stainless. Paul Kirk rolls them too. Tommy Chong too.
