      I bought one at home depot in south city / san bruno...it fit 3 racks (6 half racks)

      1. Barbeques galore used to be my source for that kind of thing, a chain with many locations on the peninsula and in San Jose. There was a private equity buyout and a bankruptcy last year, so call first to see what they have. The web site no long has a full viewing of all inventory.

        1. Amazon.com is always a good bet. You can get them tax free and with free shipping:


          The heavy-duty Steve Raichlen version is definitely worth the extra $ if you plan to cook ribs often. My wife also picked one up on the cheap at Ross.

          The Weber version can be found just about anywhere that sells Weber grills (Ace Hardware, Home Depot, etc.)

            Correction: Wife actually found the Raichlen rib rack at Marshall's in Novato for $12.95. She grabbed another for our BBQ buddy for Father's Day.

            1. Maybe Home Depot. If not , yuck, can order from Weber online. Have one and it works great. The state needs to start charging online businesses for sales tax to discourage online sales and promote local merchants.

                Home Depot is not local, no matter where you are.

                  Touche. Any way, if Fox-Cole Hardware doesn't carry it, they'll order anything you want but then could just get it directly from Weber. At least Weber stuff is made in the U.S. (minus some accessories).

              2. If it's not too far a drive, you should give the Ace Hardware in Piedmont a call. They have the best stock of BBQ accessories and Weber parts that I've seen anywhere!

                  Link for Cole Fox, just in case.

                    Live and work in Oakland in a kitchen shop in Montclair (good stuff!) but are glad to recommend Ace on Grand daily for very basic, older items. Very utiltarian and functional, nothing fancy, plus their service is good. Kind of like an old time department.

                  2. fyi for those interested, Berkeley Grocery Outlet had 2 rib racks on sale for $7.99(?) each. I think each rack could hold 4 slabs.
