A HUGE thanks to Ebijack! Tom has made different hanging rigs for his cookers and he knew I did as well. He made and shipped me a hanging ring for my jimmy cooker. This is much appreciated and will be a big help!

He set it up so I could lift out the rods. This will be nice because for things like pork butts I hang them start to finish and just lifting out the meat while on the bars is a must when they reach 195-200*

This ring is SOLID and he made it so I can adjust how I want the rebar...2 one way or 3 the other.

Today I figured I'd test it with a chuck roast.(Black Ops) Got the cooker set up lighting with some partial burnt and oak spread throughout. I started it @ 250* and then let it go up to 300* and keep around that area.

I can' t see any smoke now...it's invisible, Is my smoker broke?! :shock:

Here's the rig and the setup. Will update later on, not sure if I'll foil it later or not, it will be for slicing.

That looks great.

I wonder if Tom could make that for other cookers?

So whats the advantage to rebar over building bars into the ring? Just easier to lift big things out?

Thanks!
Looks like I got lucky with my guestamitts for locations of holes/slots/depths.
The advantage is like Keith mentions, he can lift in/out all the meat on one rod all at once like butts which have to be removed very carefully if the rods are not removable. Much easier, even more so when really hot! Even ribs can be tricky when there are a lot of racks trying to move/remove etc.
Yeah I think I can make one for most any smoker, I'm planning on making one for my UDS. It will give an extra inch of height, fit the lid and have the removable rods. But making another Acorn S.S. grate comes first.

Yea just so much easier to lift out the whole rod when dealing with pork butts that are staying on the whole time...otherwise when you got to pull them they'll fall apart. Plus like Tom said when you have a whole mess of things on it and items that have multiple hooks it's much easier.

Wow, that chuckie looks farking awesome. I have been debating the necessity of making hanging racks and may have just been pushed in that direction.

Maybe not the best pics but trust me it was goooood! I really like that black ops on beef. I cooked just to the point you could slice it and not smash it. lol

I'll miss this sweet corn! Hung everything.

Nice! hanging chuckies really works for me better than wrapping when using a grate. Kind of like Beef burnt ends actually. Pork chops really come out nice also. Wife loves em that way. Crispy burnt fat edges and very moist.

Fwismoker, just got done building my Jimmy yesterday, thanks for all the help. Just have to clean it up and season it, but now I have one more thing to make for it LOL. I'll post pictures after I clean it up.
