The 16" Sliding D Grid works in tandem with the Large Adjustable Rig, PSWoo and PSWoo-CI Extenders. It's a great second grid option for cooking high in the dome. The Sliding D Grid is designed to slide back and forth along the Extender, providing a convenient way to access a drip pan, stone, lump or second grid underneath.
The D Grid's dimensions are configured on a 16" diameter grid with the short (flat) side measuring 14.5" deep. The D Grid matches up nicely with most large fireboxes for even heat distribution. The Grid's crosswires are approximately 1/2" on-center to better handle secondary cooks like veggies, foiled pouches and such.
Set-Up (How to Use): Position the D Grid atop the Extender so the Grid's two legs fall outside the Extender. The D Grid's two legs minimize side-to-side movement while the grid slides. The straight edge on the D shaped Grid faces front.
The Sliding D Grid moves back and forth very easily. Using your fingers or a utensil, gently hold the middle edge of the grid's straight side and push back. Depending on the grill, closing the dome will bring the Sliding D Grid back over (forward) the Extender. It won't take long before you'll become comfortable on sliding the D Grid back and forward.
Pictured below left, the D Grid is on the Large Adj. Rig and Rig Extender. Pictured below right, the D Grid is on the PSWoo and Woo Extender. It's the same for the PSWoo-CI.
The Sliding D Grid can also be used on the Rig's Crossbars, as pictured below. The flat side of the D Grid provides an opening for dropping wood chunks into the lump.
Please note: Care must be taken when moving the Sliding D Grid along the Extender, as there are no limitations on how far the D Grid can slide. Balancing the Sliding D Grid atop the Extender is dependent on several factors including but not limited to weight distribution on the Grid, how fast the Grid slides and how far the dome opens. Whenever possible, keep the D Grid's weight distribution slightly forward of center (toward the grid's flat edge).
The Sliding D Grid is fabricated using 304 EPQ Stainless Steel and is electro-polished for improved performance. The EPQ wire and finish make it easier to clean the grid after each cook.

Purchased this to go with my PSWoo2 Extender and it works great. Fits great and slides nice and easy without any issues. Another happy customer, thanks again.
Kudos to Ceramic Grill Store for another thoughtful and well-made product.
Very good addition to the AR extender, more stable than putting an oval grille at the top of the "stack". I do a lot of cooking high in the dome of my LBGE and this piece will see much use.
Of all the sliding grids I have (two oval grids on sliders, plus this D-grid), this is the one I use the most for its sliding ability. Being able to push it back into the open dome gives an off-balance grid something to rest against (the dome) and is less likely to tip and spill your food all over the ground. It slides just enough for you to manipulate whatever is cooking on a lower grid - another valuable asset in my BBQ drawer of tools!
I've replicated the same cook from the video with spatchcock chickens inside the rig, and wings on the rig extender- -and it all worked great. Really adds the last bit of versatility to the large adjustable rig. A great component!
