Grill easier on a raised cooking grid. Add more protection with bigger half-moon deflectors. Set one deflector for two zone grilling. Handles for quick in/out.

Note: This Expander fits the Medium Big Green EGG. It does not fit other manufacturers' grills.

The Medium Expander raises the cooking grid near the top of the base (felt line) for grilling on a raised grid. Using the Expander is quick: Set it on the fire ring, drop on the  cooking grid and start grilling.

A real plus are the handles. They make for easy in and out of any grilling or barbeque set-up.  

To smoke low and slow barbeque, add a pair of 13" Half Moon Deflectors and 14-inch Stainless Drip Pan on the Expander's lower ring. The Drip Pan is strongly recommended to protect the deflectors from drippings and keep the EGG clean. Foil the pan for easy clean up. The 13-inch half-moon deflectors provide 3 key capabilities over EGG's ConvEGGtor.

  1. Provide bigger indirect coverage on BBQ smoking cooks;
  2. Gain better airflow with the deflectors elevated above the fire ring; 
  3. Add the option to create two zone grilling by using only one half-moon deflector.

If you want to maximize indirect coverage on two zone grilling, then opt for one of our 15-inch Half-Moon Deflectors. Please Note: a pair of 15-inch Half-Moon Deflectors will not fit the Expander.

  • The Medium Expander fits the current 16-inch (15.75-inch actual) diameter Medium Big Green EGG cooking grid. If you have the older 15-inch grid, you will need to upgrade. EGG no longer offers the 15-inch grid. 
  • To use Big Green EGG's Medium Cast Iron Grid atop the Expander, you need to remove the handles. Note, we do not recommend raising cast iron grids or griddles, as it pushes the cast iron away from the heat it needs to impart the grill marks. Cast iron is best used close to the fire.
  • Egg's ConvEGGtor does not fit the Medium Expander. Folks prefer the Half Moon Deflectors, as they provide more options, bigger coverage and are easier to handle.

  • Which Medium Expander to Order: We make Expanders to fit the three most common Medium Big Green EGG fire rings: smooth top, 3 ConvEGGtor notches and 5 shallow dimples. Please check your EGG's fire ring before ordering. Feel free to call us if you need assistance.

    • Smooth top surface on fire ring (current) - 3 Leg Expander,
    • 3 convEGGtor notches on top of fire ring - 3 Leg Expander, 
    • 5 shallow dimples on top of fire ring (old original) - 5 Leg Expander. 

    The Expander material is 1/4-inch round Stainless Steel. It's tig welded for added strength.  The top ring's outside diameter is 15-inches. The lower ring's outside diameter is 10.75-inches.

    Made in the USA by us in our wire fabrication shop.

    Just order it!

    Was so glad to find this woo. Had been looking at upsizing eggs only for this type of accessory. Figment and quality are amazing! Very fast shipping and so useful to expand grilling capabilities. Thank you CGS!

    Very pleased, does exactly what I needed. Dropped right in place.


    The woo with ceramic half stone deflectors and drip pan offer added versatility to the cooking experience on the medium BGE. Happy with my purchase from CGS and that they offer additional upgrade options for the medium BGE.

    Great Purchase

    Bought the Woo w/ stone and pan for my medium egg. Haven't used the stone yet, but immediately appreciate being able to cook with the grate raised to the felt line in the egg! Can't wait to try out the new stone and pan on my next indirect cook. Quality products and great customer service!
