The XL Woo Ring fits the XL Big Green EGG®.

Recent Update: To keep up with EGG's fire ring change (removed the convEGGtor notches), we shortened the drop on the XL Woo's lower ring. It's not a major change. Also, due to supply issues, the lower ring and legs are now fabricated using 1/4" dia. Stainless round bar.    

Handles, Stones, Drip Pan: Handles make for easy lifting - you'll like this option. Our Ceramic Stone is 18" wide and can replace EGG's ConvEGGtor when smoking ribs, brisket pork shoulder or chicken. You have a choice between 2 Halves or Full Round Stone. Most folks pick the 2 halves, as they are easier to use, provide basically the same coverage as the ConvEGGtor and offer more cooking options than the full round or ConvEGGtor. We strongly recommend adding the 18" Drip Pan to protect the Stone(s) and keep the EGG clean. Foil the pan for easy clean up.

The XL Woo can hold the ConvEGGtor. The ConvEGGtor slides into the Woo from the top. With Handles on the Woo, you can quickly lift the convEGGtor, grid and food in/out of the EGG - manage all as one unit.

The XL Woo is a two ring Stainless frame. It's an XL multi-tasker for setting up cooks near the felt line. Folks are pleasantly surprised on how robust the XL Woo is. It's a stout XL multi-tasker!

The XL Woo's upper ring holds the 24" XL Big Green EGG grid near the felt line for cooking on a raised grid. We do not recommend using cast iron atop the xl woo, as cast iron works best close the fire.

The XL Woo's lower ring drops a smidge into the fire ring and creates a platform to grill with our 20" Stainless Grid, wok with an Asian flare or set-up with a half or full ceramic stone. We offer the XL Woo with our 18" Half or Full Ceramic Stone(s) to create the indirect set-up for smoking ribs, brisket, pork shoulder or chicken. We recommend adding the 18" Drip Pan to protect the Stone(s) and keep the EGG clean.  

The XL Woo can be paired with our XL Adjustable Rig for multi-grid or super elevated set-ups. No racking system can match the XL Woo and XL Adjustable Rig Combo for convenience, capability or capacity.  

If your EGG's fire ring has the three ConvEGGtor notches, the XL Woo can sit in or out of the notches. For most cooks, we recommend out of the notches. Two instances for in the notches are getting closer to the fire or when paired with the XL Adjustable Rig.

If your XL Big Green EGG is new or only a couple years old, you can skip this part.

From 2008 to 2012, the Big Green EGG XL grill went through a number of improvements. If your grill is older than 2012, we recommend you take the measurements outlined below to confirm capabilities.

XL Woo Ring: To make sure the XL Woo Ring fits, measure from the top of the fire ring to the felt line. The measurement needs to be approximately 3". See picture below left.

XL Adjustable Rig: For the XL Adjustable Rig to work in tandem with the XL Woo or EGG ConvEGGtor, the measurement from grid to daisy wheel needs to be 16". Follow the three steps and see picture below right .

  • set the XL Big Green EGG cooking grid on the fire ring and close the dome;
  • slide a tape through the daisy wheel until it hits the grid;
  • take the measurement at the daisy wheel. It needs to be approximately 16".

The XL Woo Ring raises the XL Big Green EGG Stainless grid approximately 3". The main cooking grid will sit just below felt line, keeping the grid inside the EGG. Handles make for easy in and out.

Over the years, EGG has made a couple modifications to the XL fire ring. The XL Woo works if your EGG's fire ring is smooth on top (current version) or has the 3 notches for the convEGGtor (older version). With the notches, we recommend setting the XL Woo in the notches when using it with the XL Adjustable Rig.

Any round object 15" to 20" in diameter will fit the lower ring. Ring diameters on the XL Woo are:  

  • 23" OD top ring diameter,
  • 15" OD bottom ring diameter.

Typical accessories for the lower ring include: 20" Stainless or 18" cast iron grids, 16"+ woks, 18" full or half ceramic stones, skillets, griddles and pans. We recommend a ceramic stone under any drip pan.

The XL Woo Ring is fabricated using 1/4" and 5/16" 304 Stainless Steel round bar. It's fabricated in-house by Ceramic Grill Store, USA product. It's a workhorse and will make cooking on your XL Big Green EGG more enjoyable.

Note: Big Green EGG's 21" XL ceramic pizza stone does not fit the XL Woo's lower ring. The Stone is to big for the fire ring.

Great product and great customer service

While looking at similar products for my XL BGE, I was fortunate enough to stumble across the PSWOO. For less money than some of the alternatives, you get a far superior product. Although great for smoking, it also allows you to raise the grill grate to cook more delicate items. When my order arrived, FedEx had managed to crack the 18 inch ceramic stone. It was replaced immediately without question. Like the intro says, a great product and great customer service.

Game Changer For Me

Having an XL egg, I am always lifting the grate or the conveggtor out during some cooks and generally it’s a nuisance. Especially when it’s hot. Maybe not as bad in the smaller eggs, but the XL parts weigh a ton.
Along comes the woo ring with handles and with a few well picked accessories and all of a sudden your life gets easy! Seriously the handles on this thing make it so much easier to deal with lifting it all out now. Watch the video and get out your $. You’ll be happy you did!
