As for the rubs, they are OK. Not top shelf by any means but still usable and tasteful. I like the all purpose more than I do the beef and game. That's just my tongue though.
The hook tool works well. It makes it very easy to pull out chicken and even whole racks of ribs without the need for a fire glove. I did attempt pulling off one of the hooks with just a fire glove and it was a bit cumbersome. The hook grabber is a nice touch. The grate does fit my 18.5 kettle and is the exact size as the weber grate.
