Yeah, there are several options that are not exactly advertised. I suggest anyone looking at the BWS really crawls the BWS forums (Old Dave and RickC are great resources) as well as searching here. IMO, some options should just be standard.

I have read 3" and 4" of an increase in depth; hopefully enough so the ribs will lay flat without trimming any bones off. My assumption has been 3".

I am not sure about the fire grate differences; I found that many guys were recommending them so I listened. I'll let the dealers answer that one. It looks like the standard fire grate sits in the ash pan. Mine sits a good bit above it on its own rack. The ash pan is below, about 3 inches (just an estimate - been pouring here so no time to dig in)
