    Tom--love the woo3.  Is there a way to use it with the swing rack from CGW?

    Thanks

    OK, I'll pile on. 
    Thanks Tom. The AR has really given me a lot more cooking options. Even made giving the drip pan airspace easier (no more need to play with Copper tubing).

    thanks to all for the positive comments.  Our goal is to support USA when economically and physically possible.  Terri, the wife, who does the packaging loves stickering the boxes, "Made in the USA". 

    It's been awhile for me lighting the egg.  Picked up a three pack of bback ribs from Costco for a so to be cook.....can't wait......

    I'm all for supporting USA manufacturing.  That said, it's a little ironic that the BGE (at least the ceramic) is made in Mexico.  Primo is the only ceramic Kamado made in the USA.

    Yes.  I like the AR allot.  Can  do multiple racks of ribs plus elevating the grates for better cooks.

    Soon I will be ordering the spider as I want to try a WOK adn especially a cast iron grate on the coals for searing steaks.

    I like to support the best product. If its made in the USA then all the better. If two products are about equal, with country of origin being main diff, I'll choose the one made in the USA. While a pipe dream be nice to see th

    This isn't a battle where you have to decide sides.  We all own the best cooker/smoker in the business and we have two of the best accessory makers here to support us.  There are no losers here.
    I'll be ordering from both in the near future.

    I have an adjustable rig, spider and ston; swing rack, shaft kit, etc.  I noticed you also have a woo.  Do I need that as well?  Scratch that, would it be fun to have that as well?

    @Baysidebob  I think the difference between the two is main grill level.  Woo2 is at the gasket and spider is (or can be) lower.  Woo2 is basically a spider with a raised ring attached.  I was gonna grab a spider because some of my larger cooks end up close to dome and cook fast.  I'm kinda a rookie though, I'd like to hear Tom's take on it...

    " I'd like to hear Tom's take on it..."

    jedawa, I'm not 100% sure what your asking  but here are some thoughts. 

    With the large egg, you really do not need both, rig and woo.   On the rig, you can get a grid at the felt line (woo setup) by setting the crossbars and Rig grid (oval or 16") at the upper notch level.  I prefer to put the bge large grid right atop the rig and grill there.  For me, it's much easier to control temperature when grilling in the dome's sweet spot.

    With the Spider and Q cooks, the only time I recommend using the Spider to hold the ceramic stone is if you need the vertical space for the meat.  Typically, use the spider when doing big, 2 grid, butt or brisket cooks.   If it's just a one grid  Q cook or couple grids of ribs, I recommend putting everything on the rig: ceramic stone for indirect and the grid(s).  Having everything above the fire ring opens up the egg for great airflow.

    Whether you need both the adjustable rig and Franco's swing grid is a personal decision.  I have experience with swinging grids, as I built several when I first started to egg.  Around 2007ish, I was using a two post, adjustable, swinging grid system.  I quit the swinging grids and pursued the rig, as for me, the rig provides more flexibility.

    I realize everyone has different goals and methods when grilling and Qing.  I give props to Franco for bringing the Bubba Keg swinging grid concept to "true" ceramic cooking.   I'm just not sure what happens to all swinging grid manufacturers should Bubba Keg perfect their 2009 patent application.  

    As always, feel free to call me.

    That's what I was thinking. I usually do large, low and slow cooks on XL. I was considering adding spider to gain even more vertical. What's a "Q cook"?

    I have the woo3.  what is the advantage?
  • AviatorAviator Posts: 1,438
    I think the PS woo3 has the spider built into it and can hold the plate setter as well, so when changing gears, the entire setup can be lifted out by two handles and then you can go direct.

    Something special about BGE aftermarket.  This guy coulda, sold me a woo on top of my A/R for my large with ease.  Instead, he tells the TRUTH.  Franco has been totally forthright about his product and shipping dates and expressed gratitude at his product being favorably compared to the AR.  I have both and use both frequently.  I think these guys are grill-men who came up with some good ideas for products and found ways to share them with us.  Thay aren't "salesmen" pushing inventory of minimal quality to maximize profit.

    sorry for the late responses, took the weekend off and did some Qing!

    Jedawa,  a Q cook is short for BBQ cook,  ribs, brisket, butt or chicken typically!

    Dan4BBQ,  the woo is a simple way to raise the bge grid to the felt line for direct or indirect cooking.  Woo3 indirect uses a pizza stone. PSWoo indirect uses the BGE platesetter.

    baysidebob, thanks for the comments, they are truly appreciated.  

    Smoked these Saturday, in the dome on the XL.
