Woo Ring for the Medium Big Green Egg®
Design change July 2015: The two crossbars are no longer loose. The crossbars are now welded to the lower ring. Folks prefer them welded, less pieces to handle. The change has no visible impact on functionality.
Important: Two Big Green Egg® cooking grids exists for the medium Big Green Egg®. The grids are the old original 15" dia. and the current 15.75" dia. stainless grid. As such, we fabricate two Medium Woos to match the two Big Green Egg® grids. We added handles and pushed the upper ring out to accommodate the bigger, 15.75" diameter grid. Please take a moment to confirm your grid before ordering the Medium Woo.
On direct cooks, the Medium Woo raises the grid to the felt line.
Set the Woo on the fire ring, add the grid and start grilling. It’s that simple!
The Medium Woo offers two indirect options: round or rectangular. A rectangular set-up utilizes a pan and two fire bricks. The pan is a quarter size (9”x13”), commercial sheet pan. Pans are available at most discount merchants and restaurant supply stores. The two stones under the pan are half-size fire bricks. Their size is 4.5”x9.0”x1.25”. Bricks are available at most brickyards and some home centers. The pan/bricks set-up is a workable solution for long cuts of meat.
The round set-up utilizes round ceramic pizza stones and drip pans. Pictured below left is BGE's 12" Stone and a 12" aluminum pizza pan. Pictured below right is our 10" Ceramic Stone and 12" Stainless Drip Pan.
There are two basic set-up methods for an indirect cook.
If you are looking for a change from the standard grilling and Q'ing, you might consider wokking in your Medium Big Green Egg®. To wok, you'll need a Medium Spider and 14" Wok. The Spider sits on the Big Green Egg® fire ring and holds the wok. Carbon steel woks are best for wok cooking, as the steel transfers the heat quickly and does not hold heat like cast iron. We offer a 14" wok.
The Medium Spider comes in two configurations: 5 leg for old fire rings and 3 legs for the current fire rings with ConveGGTor (platesetter) notches. Pictured below is the 3 leg Spider. The 5 leg is holding the wok.
The “nuts and bolts” of the Medium Woo design are:
- The Standard Medium Woo raises the medium’s grid to the felt line, approximately 4.0-inches above the Big Green Egg® fire ring.
- A quarter size (9”x13”) sheet pan can slide between the two front studs.
- The material is 18-8 or 304 stainless stock.
- Three washers are welded to the lower ring and keep the Woo centered atop the fire ring.
- Two welded crossbars on the lower ring support the indirect piece(s).
- The spacing between the crossbars is approximately 7.5-inches.
