As an 18-year, 18.5"WSMl owner, I can confidently say that buying the Hunsaker rib rack was smarter than replacing yet another rusted grill grate at the beginning of BBQ season. Here's why:
1) The Hunsaker rib hanger is clearly built to last. Constructed with a heavier gauge metal than the original grills from Weber, this hanger is robust and will withstand the rigors of frequent use and the weight of many more racks of ribs or half-birds
2) Unlike chrome-plated grates prone to chipping and peeling over time, the Hunsaker rib hanger is made of high-quality stainless steel. I am reasonably sure this hanger would still look as good if I had bought and used it in since I got my WSM in 2007. The kid that inherits my WSM will undoubtedly find this Hunsaker rack inside
3) One of the standout features of the Hunsaker rib hanger is its ability to increase the capacity of the WSM. No longer am I considering replacing my aging smoker with a 22" WSM; my 18.5" now handles more ribs, chicken halves, and brisket than a stock 22", and it takes up less space and uses less fuel!
4)Tool-Free Installation: Unlike other frequent WSM upgrades that require drilling and dealing with seized and greasy WSM components, the Hunsaker rib hanger is a drop-in upgrade. Pull out the trash can bound grate and drop the Hunsaker onto the grate tabs.
5) This is not unique to the Hunsaker rack, but with vertical systems, clean-up is basically eliminated. The not-so-secret-dirty secret of the WSM and any smoker with a grate is that at the end of the cook, you don't want to clean up. Smokers and grills get "put to bed" dirty, so the grates rust. Grease, salts, and sugars drip away from hangers, not onto them. Clean-up of the hanger is accomplished with a warm paper towel instead of soaking and scrubbing with a wire brush. Hooks get tossed in the dishwasher with the silverware.
Arrived in two days. Awesome
I am very satisfied with the Hunsaker hanger set I purchased.
The flavors were noticeably better.
I’ve use it on chicken halves and spare ribs so far with great success.
I would recommend this product.

This grill rack is awesome for cooking ribs. It’s a beautiful piece of craftsmanship as well. After 12 racks I’m better at managing my fire without the water pan.
