Set up was easy. High Quality parts. Makes great ribs fish chicken anything you want. I am very happy I bought this it works so well and once you are done simply take it apart and throw it in the dishwasher. Easy clean up, works like a charm. A+++++++++++ Don't be afraid of the price the product is very nice not flimsy at all made here in the USA too. Thanks Rib-o-lator!

I used this product for the first time last night to cook baby back ribs. It worked great! I bought the Ribolator to use with my 22.5" Weber Grill with the Charcoal Kettle Rotisserie. No worries about racks sticking and overturning your food into the coals (from earlier review). I followed the cooking instructions from the Ribolator home page and the Ribs came out perfect. Can't wait to try grilling chicken and fish. Buy this item!

Purchased this item to BBQ St. Louis style ribs. Did an excellent job! However! My rack of ribs were 5 1/2 inches wide x 18 long, the trays are 5x17. I tried to make it work without cutting the ribs, but however in the end I had to cut my rib racks into 5inch pieces, still worked out fine, I suppose Baby backs aren't as wide and would work without cutting. Yes, like others have said, you need to be sure the food you are cooking is balanced in the trays.

In the end though this is a great product but for me having 5 1/2 wide x 18 long trays would be ideal.

I recently purchased a Rib-O-Lator for my husband (who is a BBQ fanatic) and he LOVES it! I love it too because it's the best food he's ever cooked on the BBQ!! The ribs are super juicy and tender and very delicious. I am thinking about getting him the smoker for Christmas! Definitely recommend!!

The best use for this is when you are cooking enough food to spread out and balance everything evenly among all the trays. It is more work all around; setting up, balancing, breaking down and cleaning it up afterwards. You cannot effectively sear anything on it, therefore, indirect cooking is the best method using this device. My first experience was with chicken legs; once they were oiled up and seasoned, they slipped all over the trays causing precarious balancing problems. I can see where this device might be very useful with balanced loaded up trays, slow cooking for a party of people; you wouldn't have to touch anything until it was done cooking. I wouldn't break it out for less than that. If you have a decent sized grill, you don't need this extravagance; it will not take the place of a rotisserie either. It would be a waste of time and energy for cooking hamburgers, steaks, chops, hot dogs etc. Use this device for cooking a load of wings or ribs, that is where it could really shine.

I got the Rib-O-Lator for my birthday and love it. Chicken has always been the hardest thing to get right on the grill, and this device has made it so much easier. I spend a little time prepping the pieces and then put them on the grill. No monitoring or turning, everything cooks quite easily. You do have to be sure to balance the load properly, I did have one tray dump into the coals the first time I used it, but that was my fault. I use a WSM for ribs, and may just get a rotisserie ring for it just so I can use this with it. Quality materials and nice workmanship, cleans fairly easily if sprayed with Pam first.

I have had this Rib-O-Lator for about 6 months now and I LOVE IT!! The food that comes off of this is amazing.
My personal favorite thing to cook is wings. I put the grill at about 225 and keep them on for about one hour. I promise you- it'll be the best wings you've ever made. I've cooked ribs, wings, brats, meatloaf, burgers, vegetables, potatoes, chicken beasts, and more... EVERYTHING I cook comes off SOOO nice and juicy. My trick is - low temperature and don't open the lid.

The quality of the unit is super nice. Very heavy duty. Super easy to use. You'll have this thing out of the box and ready in 3 minutes.
After enjoying all this amazing food - just put the trays in the dishwasher. They come out like brand new! Super easy.

I use this Rib-O-Lator on a 2014 model Weber Summit S-470 with a cordless rotisserie motor I bought on Amazon.
It fits the Weber Summit perfectly!! The Summit is such a tall grill you can use the Rib-O-Lator with the cooking grates still in. I usually take the grates out and put an aluminum tray on top of the flavorizer bars (to catch all of the drippings)

I bought another Rib-O-Lator for my father in law. He has a 2014 model Weber Genesis. It's not as tall as the Summit. The Genesis is a little more shallow. On the Weber Genesis you'll have to remove the grates and the flavorizer bars to get enough clearance. But don't worry about flare-ups. When you cook with the Rib-O-Lator you use indirect heat. Meaning, you'll use the outside burners and turn off the middle burner(s). This Rib-o-Lator is perfectly sized for the Weber Genesis and the unit fits between the 2 outside burners. Again, so you won't have flare-ups from drippings.

The seller, Bob, is a great guy too. I have emailed back and forth with him asking questions etc. The thing the impresses me is that he usually responds to emails within minutes. Not days. That's impressive!!! Great invention Bob. Every griller should own it.

It's rare for a product to exceed its expectations the way the Ribolator does, but the simplicity of design and quality of the metal used make this a joy to use. The first use was with a single baby back pork rib rack, cut in half and arranged on two staggered trays. The ribs were cooked 3 hours as per the directions on a Weber gas grill using the rotisserie burner on low and the smoke tray burner on low. The resulting product was as good as the best KC style ribs from any professional pit and the final sauce glazing prevented any excessive bark crusting. The key is the apple juice spray during cooking to keep the ribs moist. We look forward to many more cooks on this outstanding device, for chicken or salmon is should be brilliant. The clean up was super easy, just spray before use with cooking spray, then release the remaining residue under hot water and with a light use of a scouring pad - back to new in 5 minutes.! So very happy with our Ribolator :-)

I recommend this tool. Here's why: Assembly was simple and easy. Loading the trays with food is not rocket science. Keep the food somewhat balanced and there is no chance of tipping. I use my Ribolator on my older model Weber Genesis grill (side burners). For stainless trays to rotate, I removed middle three flavorizer bars. Using only the back and front burners on medium, I cooked frozen shrimp (15 min) on one tray, london broil, frozen boneless chicken breasts, and foil wrapped veggies on the other three trays (45 min). About balance again. I made sure to remove the shrimp with a spatula somewhat evenly. Keeping the distribution balanced until the last piece was removed. Cleaning the trays took me about 10 minutes with a sponge and another 2 min with a brillo pad. They look like new after scrubbing. The food was excellent. I took a video and shared it with my coworkers. All were impressed with the movement and a few are going to order the Ribolator.

The only "con" I can think of is that there are no thumb screws. The device is secured with an allen screw, (hex screw?). An allen wrench comes with the product, but I plan on replacing the hex screws with thumb screws.
