    That's the biggest drawback. Maybe soak it in a tub with water and auto dish detergent and hit it with a scrub brush. It would probly fit the bottom rack of the dishwasher, if I don't fill it up with other chit.

    BTW, I thought of puttin' a bunch of wings or veggies inside, close off the ends and let 'em tumble. Corn? Taters? Whattaya think?

    Might tear 'em up, but you'll never know if you don't try it.

    .. and yes I would be so very, very sorry that I had to have chicken. I might even offer myself money for groceries if I did.

    Nice idea Tom. Perfect for the drum. I'm sold on the Rib-O-Lator. I only have my Jen-Aire gasser so space is an issue for me. Once you learn to balance the weight on your trays they spin real nice. Dress the ribs St. Louis style and lay them out on opposing trays, then poppers and vegies on the remaining two. E. T.

    I'm sold on the Rib-O-Lator too. And I don't even have one! That may change one day. I saw a post on some cooking site for the Rib Cage and was intrigued by it. If you really load it up with 4-5 slabs they literally baste each other. Tim has food A.D.D. I think I have some other form of A.D.D. When I saw the "original" Rib Cage it triggered a flood of ideas on how to do it better. I felt compelled to build it. Call it BBQ Ingenuity Syndrome(BBQIS).

    There are advantages to both.

    Ease of use: advantage ROL.

    Ease of clean up: advantage ROL.

    Cost: advantage RC. About $25 vs. $80 (plus shipping)

    Satisfaction of BBQIS: advantage Rib Cage. I feel the same satisfaction that I felt after building my first drum and then the Topper. Then the Rotisserie ring.
    I did not invent any of the above, but those who did inspired me to make my own. And to see my own improvements and have them working to my satisfaction is priceless!

    Would I be happy with a Rib-O-Lator? No doubt. Am I happy with my Rib Cage? Hell yeah! Will I get a ROL? Probly. For now, the RC works for me.

    BTW, When I see a Rib-O-Lator, I feel no BBQIS. I don't think I could improve it. I's cool the way it is. I'll probly get one some day.

    I see a lot of inherent prollems with the Rib-o-Lator, and cleaning is one of them. As we all know, the dishwasher will not remove burnt on sauce very efficiently.

    It will not handle full spares, just to name a couple.

    Do I think the ROL is a nice toy for the price? Hell yes.

    Should I own one of each?????






    DUH!!!!!!!
