Sliding Grids, we had it first and still best at it........


Important: This Bundle is an add-on to the Large Adjustable Rig and at a minimum requires the Rig. The Bundle is an efficient way to increase capacity, add versatility or simplify multi-grid cooks on the Rig. It's our most popular addition to the Large Adjustable Rig R&B Combo.

Let's face it, when grilling with two grids in the Large Big Green EGG® getting at the lower grid can be a royal pain in the ............, especially if you regularly sear, season, flip, turn, foil or sauce the food on the bottom grid. Not to worry, with the Rig and this Bundle, you have the best set-up for managing two grid cooks in the Large Big Green EGG. We call it Sliding Grids.

Simply, Sliding Grids on the Rig provide three key options that no other rack system, including EGG's EGGspander (PSWoo copy), can do.   

  • choose from 5 grid height options for the lower grid;
  • rotate top and bottom grids without touching the food;
  • set-up in seconds, no need to fiddle with nuts, bolts or hand tools.

The Key to the Bundle is the Rig Extender. It adds another cooking level to the Rig. From here, it's pick a grid to use atop the Extender. We offer two grid choices, as we recognize not all cooks are the same. 

  • 16" Sliding D Grid;
  • 13"x17" Oval Grid.

The 16" Sliding D Grid is best if you need direct access to the lower grid to sear, flip, season or sauce the food. It's best because you push it back, out of the way, to access to the lower grid. Where you set the lower grid is not critical: 13" CI grid on the Spider, EGG grid on the fire ring or 13"x17" Oval Grid at one of the three Rig settings.

The 13"x17" Oval Grid pairs with the R&B Combo's 13"x17" Oval Grid. With two Oval Grids, you can easily rotate or swap grid positions without touching the food. This works great on multiple racks of ribs and chicken wings. The 13"x17" Oval Grid is best for low & slow BBQ cooks. Mix and match meats is possible - couple pork butts and racks of ribs, or brisket and ribs, swap sausage for ribs or even a heaping pile of chicken.....

With the rib and chicken videos, both cooks use the Large Adjustable Rig R&B Combo and Rig Extender. The only two notable differences between both set-ups are highlighted in red below. 

  • Chicken cook uses the 16" Sliding D Grid on the Rig Extender. Watch how the D Grid pushes back and opens up access to the lower grid. Notice how care free we are in handling the D grid -  no worries about tipping. The position of the lower 13"x17" Oval Grid is at the middle Rig setting.  
  • Rib cook uses the 13"x17" Oval Grid on the Rig Extender. See how we rotate the two Oval Grids in order to manage the smoking process. The Oval Grid is perfect for BBQ cooks or when rotating food is needed. You  rotate the grids without handling the food. The position of the lower Oval Grid is at the upper Rig setting.

  

 

Atop the Extender is a great place to cook pizza. We recommend our 15" Round Ceramic Stone - either a full round or 2 half stones.

Having a bigger, 15" stone above the felt line protects the felt from burning. Up also allows the convective forces swirling around the dome to cook the topside of the pizza. And, having the stone far from the lump helps control the Stone's thermal temperature.

With thin crust pizza, we use one stone - the pizza stone, no blocking stone as pictured below. 

     

If you don't do big cooks with the Large Big Green EGG but would like some multi-grid capability or convenience, then take a look at the Half Stone/Grid Bundle. The Half Grid provides an upper grid while the Half Stone adds indirect capability. This Bundle is a simple and straightforward way to add more flexibility with the Adjustable Rig in the Large Big Green EGG.
