Rig Extender Question

Does anyone know of a tutorial available on the use of a Rig extender, sliding grate, spider setup. Also got a Woo2 for Christmas and it has a piece to it I cannot figure out for the life of me.

It was a GREAT Christmas - now need to figure out how to use all the new toys.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Tom's web site is very good and the photos with sample set-ups are the best.
    I think if you run through the web pages you will find all you need and think of others on your own.

    The best advice I can give you is to have a plan in your head before you get your Egg hot and even test fit your idea before you start your cook.

    Thank you,

    What piece do you have that you can't figure out? Is it the spider?

    Sounds like your Santa knew what to bring you for Christmas. I recommend you call TJV and he can walk you through whatever you need to know. Did you ever find the lump you were looking for around Conroe?

  • Yep! Walmart had an ample supply of US made Royal Oak. Tried it, liked it and on my way to get some more!

    Thanks for the tip.
  • Thanks for steering me to the website - the piece I was confused about appears to be an extender. I tried ever which way to fit it to the woo2 but it looks like it sits on the GRATE! Mystery solved.

    Now if I can just figure out how to make the sliding racks on the rig extender work...?
  • Thanks, I went to the site and found a place to send a note for help. Hopefully that will solve the problem.

    Also, I couldn't agree with you more on having a plan in advance. Went out to the eggs an hour ahead of time and started laying things out. Good thing because if I had waited until cook time the party would have much later than planned!

    Cooked two slabs of huge beef ribs on one Egg wit the Woo2 indirect and four slabs on St. Louis spares on the other Egg with extender. All turned out excellent.

    BTW, two of the spare racks were Berkshire pork with JH Pecan rub - The true winner of cook.

    Sounds like you got a handle on every thing.
    I'm sure Tom will answer your emails for any questions.
    Tom is a super nice guy and all his stuff is quality.
    The nice thing about this forum is people call it like it is. If a product is crap or service is poor you will know about it here.
    I have the Adj Rig for my large, Flip Ring for my XL and an original Woo for my XL.
    I don't have any of the oval sliding racks. Your Santa was better than mine...
    Thank you,
