Raise the EGG grid, easily handle the ConvEGGtor, add a second tier grid in the Large Big Green EGG.

THE FIRST: Our Expander is the original, and to the best of our knowledge, the only Kamado rack system that carries a US Patent. We are also the inventors of the second level sliding grid system. If a grill manufacturer has something similar, it is probably a China-made imitation. The PSWoo Expander components are proudly made in the USA. Help us support the USA craftsmen who design, invent & is truly appreciated!

Strongly Recommend a Drip Pan:  Adding a drip pan protects the ConvEGGtor and keeps the EGG clean. CGS' 14" Stainless Drip Pan (left) matches up nicely to the ConvEGGtor's circular shape. CGS' 16" Stainless Drip Pan (right) expands coverage out to the 3 legs - great for big meats. No need to worry about the 16 impacting airflow, as it sits a good bit above the fire ring. We actually prefer the 16 Drip Pan over the 14. Both Stainless Pans are reusable, simply foil for easy clean up.

Three critical differences between the CGS Expander and EGG EGGspander.

  1. With the PSWoo, you handle the ConvEGGtor from the side without touching the food or grid. With EGG's EGGspander, the top grid and food need to be removed to get to the ConvEGGtor. Folks really appreciate the PSWoo's simplicity in handing the ConvEGGtor.
  2. The PSWoo can sit atop the Large Big Green EGG grid. So, you do not need the two half grids that come in the 5 piece EGGspander package. If you want the half grid option atop the PSWoo, pick up one CGS' 9x18 Half Stainless Grid.
  3. You will save a bunch of cash going with the PSWoo.

Our Recommendation: If you own the ConvEGGtor and are looking to raise the EGG grid, enjoy quick access to the lump, easily manage a hot ConvEGGtor and maybe add one more cooking level, then go PSWoo.

Check the PSWoo Video below for more details. The Spider-Cool Tab has a quick video on how to use Half Stone Deflectors instead of the ConvEGGtor.

Help us support Made in America. The PSWoo components are fabricated using USA drawn 304 Stainless Steel wire. The PSWoo and Extender are fabricated by us in our wire fabrication shop. The 16" Sliding D Grid is fabricated in the USA for us.

The PSWoo and Extender are fabricated using 1/4" Stainless Round Bar. The PSWoo works with the Large EGG Stainless grid. With the Extender, the spacing between top and bottom grid is approximately 3.5".

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 the large firebox 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. The Sliding D Grid is fabricated using 3/16" 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.

Note on Cast Iron Grids

We recommend shying away from using cast iron atop any raised grid configuration. Cast iron needs heat to do its thing - create the cool grill marks. By raising the CI grid, we are, in effect, moving it away from the heat it needs to do its thing. The higher we place it, the less effective it becomes. The only way to counter-balance height is to run the EGG hotter. Why run hotter when it is easier to drop the CI grid closer to the fire!

what took me so long!

First time I used this was to make BGE over the top chili, worked great! Makes removing and installing plate setter so much easier and checking lump level a breeze. I've had my egg for 15 years and wish I would have gottten this a long time ago. Thank you CGS

Waited 24 years for this

The PS woo has made taking the plate setter on and off so simple now. I reverse sear often and using the PS woo to take the plate setter out is what i was missing for the last 24 years of BGE grilling. Tried a Pichana for the first cook with the PS woo and my first time cooking a Pichana, came out great. Haven’t tried the upper rack system yet, i am sure when i need the space it will come in handy.

Perfect products!

Longtime Big Green Egg owner/user. This is my first purchase from CGS and I couldn’t be happier! Having these specific items will really expand my cooking capabilities great stuff!

Great product

Makes it easy on those long cooks to check the charcoal without pulling meat off racks. Plus it's wayyyy cheaper then the BGE version
