Medium Woo Ring for the Medium Big Green Egg®

Medium Woo Ring for medium big green egg with 15" diameter grid -  old style
or
Medium Woo with handles for medium big green egg with 15.75" diameter grid -  new style

 

reminderpin12px.jpg Important:  There are two different size cooking grids for the medium Big Green Egg® grill.  The grids are the original 15" dia. and the current 15.75" dia. grid.  As such, we fabricate two Medium Woos to match the two Big Green Egg® grids.

New grills come with the 15.75" diameter grid.  To accommodate this grid, we added handles and pushed the Woo's upper ring out to match the 15.75": diameter.  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! 

Indirect Cooks

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.

Wok Cooks

If you are looking for new adventures, you might consider wokking in your Medium Big Green Egg®.   To wok, you'll need our Medium Spider and 14" wok.  The Spider sits on the fire ring and holds the wok.

Carbon steel woks are best for wok cooking, as the thin steel transfers heat quickly.  Our 14" wok is carbon steel and imported from Asia.  Makes sense to import a wok from Asia. 

Note: The Medium Spider comes in two configurations: 5 leg for old fire rings and 3 legs for the current fire rings with the 3 convEGGtor (platesetter) notches.  Pictured below is the 3 leg.  The 5 leg is similar, just 2 more legs.

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.

Presently, the Medium Woo is our only raised grid set-up for the Medium Big Green Egg®.  We’ve experimented with making a Spider, Adjustable Rig or Woo Extender for the Medium but given the cooker’s space limitations, we have not formulated a multi-tasking design worthy of your money.

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.
