I phoned Gary Knackstedt to thank him for adding this to the product line. I had previously purchased the cross, and it worked very well. However, I struggled to implant the cross on the ground even with the spear that came with the cross as the soil that I was BBQing over wasnt firm enough. Thankfully, the additition of the adjustable base solves that problem permanently for any kind of outdoor surface. It fits the cross flawlessly and the two legs for the base provide all the necessary stability. The legs arrive separately from the base, but assembly and disassembly takes only a few minutes.
I have yet to actually test the cross and base together in a BBQ, but I am so pleased with the sturdiness, look, feel, and portability of both items that I decided to write this review before using it in a cookout. For any aficionado of South American gacho-style outdoor BBQ, go ahead and make the investment. With proper care, it will last you many years.
