Spider - Woo Ring - Adjustable Rig Overview

At CGS, our passion is a simple one - make ceramic grilling easier & more enjoyable. Since 2005, we've invented a number of handy accessories. Our most popular accessories are the platform pieces: Spider, Woo Ring & Adjustable Rig. Combine the three with the usual grids, stones, etc. and you'll be able to cook just about anything. The detail below should give you an idea of what each does and how they are different.

After reading the page, checkout the Grill List to see what fits your grill.  If applicable, checkout the instructional sections under Adjustable Rig, Spider and Woo Ring. They provide greater detail, instructions, on how to set-up the popular cooks: grilling, smoking BBQ, wok, pizza, etc. You can shop by Grill and Product or use the Shop Brand or Shop All Sections.

Spider:  The Spider is a single ring platform with legs. How many Spider legs (3,4,5) is dependent on your grill's fire ring/box. The correct Spider is listed in your grill's shopping pages.

The Spider can hang down inside the fire box/bowl. The Spider's round platform holds a grid, wok, stone and such above the fire. It's a terrific place to sear steaks on a cast iron grid and/or set-up with a half or full stone under a grid. 

Additionally, the Spider can be inverted up, creating a platform above the fire box/bowl. It's a simple way to elevate a cast iron grid, wok, stone or Dutch oven for easier handling.

The Spider can be paired with the Adjustable Rig for big BBQ cooks. Outside the grill, you can use the Spider to elevate hot items off the counter top.

Woo Ring (Woo): The Woo Ring (Woo), pictured below left, is a two ring platform that sits directly on the grill's fire ring/box. The top (big) ring is fixed position and holds the grill's cooking grid, generally a smidge below the grill's felt line. The lower (small) ring is fixed position, drops into the grill's fire ring/box and offers similar capabilities as the Spider in the down position.

The PSWoo Ring, pictured below right, is a hybrid Woo Ring that works specifically with the large Big Green Egg's ConvEGGtor or platesetter. If you own a large Big Green Egg and prefer the platesetter/convEGGtor, the PSWoo will change our life in a really good way. Trust us on this one!

A grid on the Woo's top ring is the perfect spot for a raised grilling cook. It's a terrific spot to grill chicken, brats, veggies, pizza or other delicate foods. Add a ceramic piece (ceramic stone or plate) on the Woo's lower ring and you've transformed the grilling set-up into a low & slow, smoking (BBQ) set-up.

Handles on a Woo can be standard, optional or not available. Handles are dependent on the grill size and cooking grid. Handles are a godsend when it comes to accessing the grill. Lift the Woo and the grid, stone and food come with it. No need to handle a hot ceramic plate. Check the Woo in your grill's product page for handle availability. 

 

 

Adjustable Rig (Rig): The Adjustable Rig is the most versatile multitasker available. It's the premier racking system for ceramic grills. We'll put it up against anything on the market, including all manufacturer accessories.

Creating the various cooking set-ups is as easy as adding stones, grids, and such on the Rig. Multi-level or multi-grid are both possible using the Rig's top ring and Crossbars. The top of the Rig works the sweet spot in the grill's dome. In the dome is our preferred spot for grilling on a raised grid. The Crossbars slip into the Rig's notches and hold stones, grids and such at varying heights. 

One of the cool features of the Rig is how easy it is to transition between set-ups. Most folks find that one of the Rig Combo packages handles the majority of their cooking needs. For the specialty cooks, it's just adding a piece or two when needed. Many Rig owners have commented that the Rig's capabilities are only limited by their imagination.  

If you need flexibility, capacity or the ceramic grill is your passion/hobby, the Adjustable Rig is for you. The Rig is available for most round grills with an 18" or larger cooking grid.
