The Ranger fits perfectly on a GCI Slim Fold Portable Cook station. It has an aluminum table top in case of excess heat with ample storage for holding spices, platters etc. The table folds flat when not in use and is light weight. I had originaly purchased the table for a gas grill. The table can be found at Dicks Sporting Goods, Amazon and Camping World. It may be available at Academy not sure. Believe It or not Camping World had the best when I purchased.
Regarding vent temps....I follow the guidelines that are listed in the manual and have had no issue.
