Our popular Small Big Green EGG Expander raises the cooking grid, holds half-moon or full round deflectors for indirect cooks and easily lifts in & out via handles. 

Note: This Expander fits the Small Big Green EGG®. It does not fit other kamado grills.

    Grilling on a Raised Grid:

    The Expander raises the Small EGG's cooking grid near the felt line (base top) for direct grilling on a raised grid. It's approximately 2-3/4 inches above the fire ring.

    BBQ, Low & Slow Smoking: 

    For the long indirect cooks, add CGS' 10-inch (full or half-moon) heat deflector(s) and 10-inch Stainless drip pan. If want wider coverage, go with a pair of Big Green EGG 12-inch half-moon deflectors and Small (11") disposable drip pan.

    Two Zone Grilling:

    For two zone grilling, direct and indirect, add Big Green EGG's 12 Inch Half-Moon Heat Deflector (#127273) on the lower ring.

    Handles for Easy In & Out:

    Handles make it easy to lift the Expander in and out Small EGG. The Expander with Handles only works with the 13-inch cooking grid that came with your Small EGG.


    • Egg's ConvEGGtor does not fit the Expander. Folks prefer the 10-inch deflector stone, as it is easier to handle.
    • Egg's small, 13-inch, Cast Iron Grid does not fit the Expander with handles. 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.
    • The Expander is not recommended for wokking. Check out our Small Spider for that.


    Use two deflector stones for pizza. Best to place both on the cooking grid to get higher in the grill. CGS Ceramic Spacers are ideal for increasing height and creating an air gap between stones. 10-inch deflectors pictures. Best to keep the deflectors the same diameter.


    The Expander raises the cooking grid approximately 2.75-inches above the fire ring. The outside diameter of the upper and lower ring is approximately 12.25-inches. Round accessories from 8.5" to 11.5" will fit inside the Expander.

      Measure to insure the Expander fits your grill. Confirm the Expander's 12.25-inch OD base ring will sit atop the fire ring, preferably in the middle of the fire ring. The distance from the top of the fire ring to the top of the base should be at least 3 inches.

    The Expander is fabricated with 1/4-inch diameter, 304 grade Stainless Steel. Made in the USA by Ceramic Grill Store, in our wire fabrication shop.

    Another great accessory!

    As with all of their products, another simple but perfect accessory for my egg. Handles model fits the standard grill grate and cast iron perfectly, adding stability to the grill when flipping your food. Also puts the grill up so you can get a spatula at the right angle. Deflector sits perfectly on tabs.

    A must have for small BGE

    Do not know how I could live without it. When cooking anything that needed to have the grill at the top of the egg I used some juice cans. They always fell into the fire and generally was not a good experience. The woo does it all.

    Woo is great in Kamado Joe, Jr

    I have used my new woo ring in my KJ JR 4-5 times. It fits this cooker perfectly and really makes it easy to do "raised level" cooking or to set up for indirect cooking. My only complaint is that it wasn't available earlier than it was. I love it!


    Works great on the small. Love having the cooking surface at the felt line.

    Great as always

    I have several items from the Ceramic Grill Storeand they are always top notch.
