Can either get from Amazon or directly from the manufacturer (www.wingsinthings.com). Beware that the much cheaper sticker price from the manufacturer is offset by a $21.95 shipping charge...

Works like a charm! Food sure tastes better when it's disoriented...






(^^^Not my photos^^^)
I inherited two similar baskets from my dad.

He made the best chicken I had ever had in those baskets, basting the meat constantly as it tumbled. Whatever grill he had, he figured out how to use them.
I've seen pictures of similar baskets on the web, but they always seem to be out of stock, I'm glad the one you found is readily available.

The cylindrical ones do hold more food, but the meat also is exposed to the heat from all sides.
Any treatment you expose the meat to is kissed by the coals on all sides. Picture flipping the meat constantly, while basting it.
As posted above, my Dad used baskets. When he did, the food was fantastic. Otherwise, the food was overcooked. It's that different.

This thing is a bit pricey but is stainless 304, looks well-built, and can be set up for flat basket use. Check the rest of the pics in the link.

They really are pretty awesome. I picked up 3 of them on your recommendation and I love them. I can fit 5 on one side of my PBC, and still have the other rebar for the main course. I'm ordering 2 more this weekend. The adjustable height makes it easy to do cherry tomatoes in one, corn in another, southern style ribs in a third, etc. They're nonstick to boot. For $6.99, you can't beat'em!

Hi Would these baskets fit on a 5/16 rod?
Thanks DanB

I've only ever hung them off of rebar in my PBC so I'm not sure if they would or not. The item description says they're intended for a 3/8" rod, but with a set screw, I'd guess that it would work.

Are you hanging five baskets off one rebar? Hadn't thought of that.

I've only got the 3 at the moment but I'll be ordering a couple more. Here is a pic I took when I first got the first 3 and wanted to see how they fit. I think I could probably do 6 but it would be a bit crowded.

Come to think of it, I bet I could fit 10-12 of them if I had occasion to. They're 16"x 8" which is 128 sq inches. That would put me at 1300sq inches in a smaller footprint than my Weber 22.5 which only has 363 sq inches! The baskets fit 20 wings each or 10 brats. You could do a run of 50 brats, 100wings, and still have room for ribs! It turns the PBC into a tailgating monster machine.

The parts I posted above all work on a 5/16 inch rod, as well as a 3/8 inch. The thumb screw takes up the slack.

Yesterday's cook using the "F-it and G-it" big honkin' basket on the PBC:

From left to right:

1) Wings with Habernero Death Dust rub
2) A 4-lb pork loin with Plowboys Yardbird rub
3) Wings with rib rub intermingled with beer brats

(The pork loin made a good separator between the habernero wings and the more family-friendly ones )

Default Dumb things you do with idle hands....

Figuring I won't always have a pork loin to use as a basket divider, I decided to make a non-organic one.

Took one of those folding steamer basket things, removed all the 'petals', and enbiggened a couple of the holes in the round part. Now it fits over a roti-fork.

End result is an adjustable divider to segregate spicy wings from mild ones, with a few metal shavings thrown in to prevent iron deficiency....
