I was pretty excited when pimpmygrill came out with this replacement grill grate setup. It almost doubles the square inch cooking surface of the 20 series grills. It’s easy to install and season up to cook on. I got mine for use in my grill I take camping. The top rack even holes cut for poppers or drumsticks. I highly recommend these if you want more room.

When you slide the racks out do they stop or come right out? Can you remove the top one for larger pieces of meat? Is it difficult to put the drip tray out?

I just ordered one for my 13 year Traeger Texan and would be interested in hearing the answer too

Yes they have stops, yes you can easily take the top rack out, both rack for that matter. . I haven’t tried taking the drip pan out yet. I don’t foresee an issue tho.

I bet you wish you bought that shelf along time ago, don’t ya?

How did you fasten the boards? That looks like that will be nice!

You gonna get the 2 rack or 3???
Those are the Pitboss Magnet cutting boards that were on sale for $9.99 at Lowes a couple years ago!!! BOOM, stick it baby!! They usually stick to my frig, now they will stay out there... they just need another oiling up.
 
Still need a spring cleaning but:

got my wood oiled, moved my utensil magnet to the side, and room under the folded shelf for my probe spools!!!

Unfortunately I don’t think there’s a 3 rack option for the 575 like there is for the 780

You are correct! There is not. I thought there was, my bad!☺️
 
A dual rack is fine with the 575, I don't hold parties like I used to but there's plenty of room for doing small groups and the racks are great help for jerky and deer sticks.

I guess the circumference of a 575 is smaller than a 780? I just thought the 780 was longer, not larger.
Traeger would know..

I thought the same.

I feel the same way. I am usually just cooking for myself and occasionally have a few friends over. The racks extend the cooking area a little on the 575 and that's enough for me.

What the Pimp racks have done is to make the top rack useable (which it really wasn't before) and to be able to pull the racks out to take out the meats or probe them easily. Now that I have been using them for about a year, I don't know how I managed without them!
