Custom Fabricated Accessories for Big Green Egg® & Kamado Joe®
Upgrade Notice: Please note effective Fall 2012, Big Green Egg® changed the Large Fire Ring to include 3 notches for the Large Platesetter. As such, we changed the Large Spider to conform with the notch Fire Ring. We should point out that neither Spider (5 or 3 Leg) offers a decernable performance advantage over the other.
Which Spider should you pick? If your Large Fire Ring has the 3 Platesetter notches on top, see below, then choose the 3 Leg Spider. If your Large Fire Ring has 5 dimples on top, see below, then choose the 5 Leg Spider. Important to note: If you need a 5 Leg Spider, do not pick the 3 Leg Spider because it is new. Trying to position the three legs around the five dimples will frustrate you......we know this from our own experience. Likewise, the 5 Leg Spider does not fit the 3 notch Fire Ring. Both Spiders offer the same capabilities. Kamado Joe® owners should pick the 3 Leg Spider.
The Large Spider fits the Large Big Green Egg® and Kamado Joe®.
The Spider is one of our cool, yet simple, inventions. We named it the Spider because if you turn it legs down, the legs look like spider legs. The Spider could skedaddle away! It’s a work-horse that can be used with the Adjustable Rig or combined with other pieces for new cooking experiences.
The Spider sits atop the fire ring and does not interfere with airflow. In the hanging position, pictured below left, the Spider drops approximately 2" into the fire ring. In the inverted (up) position, pictured below right, the 5 leg Spider sits approximately 2" above the fire ring. The 3 Leg Spider can sit in or out ouf the platesetter notches.
When barbequing with multiple grids on the Adjustable Rig, the Spider holds the indirect pieces, stone and drip pan. For searing or blackening, the Spider positions the cooking grid, skillet or griddle 2" inside the fire ring. For wokking, the Spider holds our 16" round bottom wok.

Please read the warnings and safeguards below:
WARNING: For self protection, anyone using a ceramic cooker needs to understand the principals and preventive methods surrounding a Flashback, including Flashbacks from the lower slider vent, felt rim opening and/or top daisy wheel vent. Please consult your ceramic grill manufacturer or retailer for Flashback details and preventative measures before attempting any cook in a ceramic cooker, including cooks with or without, the Spider, Woo Rings or Adjustable Rig. Keep children away from the cooker, especially the lower slider opening, at all times.
WARNING: Only remove the Spider, grid on Spider, pan/skillet on Spider when the cooker has cooled to ambient temperatures. Do not remove the Spider, grid, pan or skillet during a high temperature (>300 degrees Fahrenheit) cook. The cooker can flashback. The dome thermometer or remote sensing probes positioned above the fire ring are not an accurate measure of the temperatures in the fire ring and firebox. The temperatures in the fire ring and firebox can be much higher. Lump burns in excess of 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. Adequate hand protection is required when removing heated items from the cooker.
