If you want to get just pieces of it BEFORE downloading the entire file, try
this web site:


If you just need enough variables to run a land surface model, this is
faster than downloaded all the multilevel met data and splitting it up.
But if the entire file is already downloaded, there is a utility called
"wgrib" to view and slice GRIB files which you can find on the web or in
your WRF directory: external/io_grib1/WGRIB/wgrib_main.c  You can use
information out of the VTables to help get the pertinent variable
