The XL Deep Drop Spider fits the XL Big Green EGG®.

The XL Deep Drop Spider has two primary uses:

1. Hangs down inside the fire ring for grilling hot and fast just above the lump. 

When sitting down, the Spider drops approximately 3.5 inches. This puts it just above the fire box. Using the XL Deep Drop Spider in conjunction with a cooking grid, griddle or grate is a great way to get on top of the fire for hot & fast searing or blackening. Down, the Spider holds any round object 14" to 18" in diameter. The most popular is an 18" cast iron grid for searing steaks and burgers.

Please note, an 18" round accessory (grid) may ever so slightly interfere with one of the Handles on the XL Kick Ash Basket. It's not a big deal but needs to be noted. 

2. Sits inverted (ring up) on the ConvEGGtor or our XL Woo to elevate the pizza stone. 

In the inverted (up) position, the XL Spider elevates the pizza stone up into the dome. The Spider can be paired with EGG's ConvEGGtor® or the XL Woo/Grid.

For a pizza stone, we recommend a 15"-18" pizza stone. A bigger stone can complicate and hinder the pizza cook. Using a blocking stone under the pizza stone is dependent on dough thickness and cooking temps. 

Spider Specs; Ring OD is approximately 15". Leg drop is approximately 3.5". Fabricated using 1/4" Stainless Round Bar with Tig welds for improved strength and durability. The XL Spider does not interfere with airflow.

The Best Use Isn't Even Listed

I bought my BGE XL 11 years ago. Recently they replaced my firebox and fire ring under warranty (they had cracked into several pieces under normal use). The new fire ring is not as tall as the old one and is shaped a bit differently. As a result, my old XL Spider, with a shorter height, did not bring my cooking grate to the rim of the Egg (even with the side shelves). This taller Spider makes up for the difference.

Now I have two Spiders - the lower and taller versions. That gives me additional options for cooking. Glad it was available.
