All the same great features as our standard Adjustable Rib-O-Lator except these shorter adjustable trays will fit smaller Kettles as well as Eggs, Kamados, and of course, Gas Grills.

This model fits the widest  possible variety of situations and is perfect for the bbq’r that has multiple grills because it can easily be moved from one to another and adjusted for a perfect fit every time.

Each tray will adjust down to 11″ and all the way up to 20″ long.

NOTE: Spit rod and motor are NOT included because The Rib-O-Lator is designed to fit onto YOUR own existing rod and motor. If you need these things, then please order the Combo Package on our “Products” page.


  • Gas Grills (see “Will it Fit My Grill” below)
  • With a Ring* it will fit – 18″ and 22″ Kettles – WSMs – Large and XL Eggs – Classic and 24″ Big Joe Kamados



  • The Rib-O-Lator’s™ four trays allows you to rotisserie any type of food you can think of — the possibilities are endless. Click on “Photo Gallery” to see all the things that other users are cooking. Amazing!
  • Because the Rib-O-Lator uses the indirect heat of your barbecue, all your food will be tender, juicy, and done perfectly every time. It will pay for itself by eliminating all the burnt, dried out food that most grills produce.
  • The Rib-O-Lator slips onto your own rod and motor (if you don’t have these already, then order the Combo Package).
  • The Rib-O-Lator gives you the versatility to cook as much or as little as you like. You don’t have to use all the trays –you can load only 1 or 2 when you’re just cooking for yourself.
  • It can also be used for tailgating, camping or hunting when you use it with our cordless, battery-operated motor (see Products page). Now you can take it anywhere – even move your grill to a better spot on or deck or in your own backyard!
  • It’s made of quality 304 stainless steel and is dishwasher safe.

*IF YOU INTEND TO ROTISSERIE on Kettles and WSMs you MUST have an Extension Ring whether you are using The Rib-O-Lator or doing traditional spit-fork rotisserie. It’s necessary because it adds extra height and also provides slots for the rod to rest in and holes to attach a motor (see Kettle picture to see the set-up). You can order the Ring alone from our “Products” page, or the Ring Combo Package which includes it as well as the rod and motor too.

For Masterbuilt grill smokers:  You will need different support brackets to hold the trays, as the ones that come in the box won’t work. All you have to do is, in the checkout section, leave a comment that you have the Masterbuilt and I will send you the right ones.

For Ugly Drum Smokers: (UDS) you don’t have to use an Extension Ring if you are willing to do some simple modifications — many people just cut their own slots in the sides of the drum for the rod to rest in, drill holes to attach a bracket and motor. If you don’t want to do these modifications, then you can use the Ring.

For Eggs and Kamados: you will need a specialized Joetisserie Ring (see pictures). This Ring is necessary because it provides slots for the rod to rest, holes to attach a rotisserie motor AND sloping sides to allow the lid to close. We don’t sell this particular Ring so in this case, purchase the Short Adjustable Rib-O-Lator only and buy the Joetisserie Ring separately on Amazon — it will include the rod and motor too.

For Gas Grills you do not need a Ring to rotisserie — just a rod and motor.


  • First, put your spit rod on your grill. Measure down from the center of the rod to your grates. You need 6″ of clearance. If needed, remove grates and measure again. If you need still more clearance, then lift out the burner covers (slip in an aluminum cookie sheet in their place) and measure again. You should have 6″ of clearance now. (If you don’t, then your grill is too small for The Rib-O-Lator).
  • From the spit rod to the back of the grill, you will need 6 3/4″.
  • You will need 15″ from end to end to accommodate the brackets and the trays when they are set to their shortest length.
  • It will always clear in the top position as there is plenty of room in the lid.
  • If you have clearance in all directions, then the Rib-O-Lator will fit your grill.

FOR WEBER GRILLS you can cut off about 2″ off each flavor bar and they will set further down in the grill giving you the clearance you need.

The Rib-O-Lator has a 30-day unconditional money-back guarantee. If for any reason it doesn’t meet your expectations, you can return it for a full refund less shipping.
