Yup, but they have more verticle space for additional grates. If you find a domed lid that fits, you could feasibly have 3 cooking racks in 1 unit.
Still, 20" diameter, 36" long is about the same dimensions that most "beginner" offsets are that Kmart/Walmart/Target sells. They may not even be that big.
