Update, Half Stone Hanger Add-on, see below. Expander fits all Big Joes.
The key to the Expander is its two grid system. With two grids, you can configure grid size and position depending on what and how much you're cooking.
The Big Joe Expander fits both Big Joe 2, Big Joe 3 and works with the Divide & Conquer system. Checkout the video to see how easy it is.
Most folks find:
- When grilling, the half grid allows easy access to and adds plenty of shelf space above the Divide and Conquer grids.
- When BBQing, both grids on the Expander provides sufficient grid space for big briskets, multiple pork butts or several rack of ribs above the Divide & Conquer system.
- For pizza, the Expander puts the pizza stone high in the dome - just where you want it!
- Being able to move the Expander to different levels on the Divide and Conquer system adds a great deal of versatility.
Half Stone Hanger Option: photos coming
We modified the XL EGG Hanger to fit the Big Joe Expander. It's an easy way to create an indirect set-up under the Expander's Half Grid. It's a quick set-up: hook the Hanger to the Expander's top ring and slide in one of the Big Joe Half Stones. You can slide the stone in or out during a cook very easily.
The XL EGG owners really enjoy this option with the reverse sear method, as you can do the entire cook without reconfiguring the grill. A big benefit of the set-up is you can use both big Joe half grids below the Expander - grill over the center part of the big joe, not pushed to a side.
