Just our way of saying, Thanks
Note: The XL Spider only fits the XL Big Green EGG. It does not fit other manufactures grills. It's a multi-tasker that can be combined with other accessories to create new cooking experiences.
The XL Spider sits on the fire ring. It can hang down, creating a platform inside the fire ring. Or the Spider can be inverted, creating a platform higher up.
Hangs down inside the fire ring.
The Spider drops approximately 2.25 inches inside the fire ring. This puts it just above the fire box and Kick Ash Basket handles. It does not interfere with lump baskets. Sitting down, the Spider holds any round accessory 15" to 20" in diameter.
Set a Half Stone inside the fire ring:
The XL Spider can hold a half-moon deflector to create two zone grilling, one side direct & the other indirect, The XL EGG cooking grid sits above on the fire ring. Below left is EGG's XL Half-Moon Deflector. Below right is CGS' 18-Inch Half-Moon Deflector with the XL grid.
Grill Closer to the fire:
Adding a grid, griddle or grate is a great way to get closer to the fire for hot & fast searing or blackening. Pictured are two popular grid choices: On the left is EGG's 18" Large cast iron grid. On the right is CGS' 20" Stainless grid and Lump Reducing Rings.
Wok - Asian Style
The XL Spider can be set up or down to wok. Down puts the wok closer to the fire. Up makes it a little easier to manage the wok cook. The choice is yours. CGS Lump Reducing Rings is a great way to manage the fire under the wok.
Elevate the pizza stone:
The XL Spider can be inverted and paired with EGG's ConvEGGtor®, EGGspander or CGS' XL Expander. It is an easy way to elevate and create separation between stones. Add CGS Ceramic Spacers for additional height.
On pizza stone size, we recommend a 15"-18" pizza stone, 16" stone pictured above. 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 temperatures.
Spider Specs; Ring OD is approximately 14.25". The leg drop is approximately 2-1/4 inches. Fabricated using 1/4" Stainless Round Bar with Tig welds for improved strength and durability. The XL Spider does not interfere with airflow or Ash Baskets.

This is perfect for my Wok.
I put my two 18" half stones I got from you and it is perfect for my Dutch oven. See the pineapple upside down cake cooked perfect.
Just got my spider for my xl green egg. I already had a ceramic pizza round and they went together perfectly. What a great product! Used it to make indirect heat for smoking. This was my first attempt ever to make a brisket and everything went great! I would highly recommend this product!
I wish i would have known about the spider for the XL before i got the BGE platesetter. The spider is thick, heavy-gauge steel and it lives in my XL. I use it with a stone and the adjustable rig and oval grid setup (this way, I can add wood chunks for smoke flavor throughout the cook) and I even use the spider to hold kebabs directly over the fire. this is a versatile and necessary accessory that every XL Big Green Egg owner MUST have.
This is a great item if you want to use a WOK on your BGE. I bought this and could not be happier. Built for years of use...
Great construction, great for woking on BGE !
