Slide and Gluide Bars on Adjustable Rig

Hey Guys, How much mileage do you get out of the slide and glide bars on the ceramic Grill Stores adjustable rig? Do they get used often enough in the Adjustable rig set-up to make them worth while purchasing? The best senario I can think of is using them to hold a drip pan below top grid so dripping from the top grid don't land on what's cooking below.

    I love mine, but use it mostly for a second layer of food, at felt level. 
    I usually put the drip pan way low on the stone

  • I use mine quite often. I also have the oval stone and grate the fits on top of it. Use for both a double layer of food and for putting a drip pan on it. It is worth the money for me.

    I used mine on every cook since my purchase.. Either holding a drip pan, or more food. Sure makes it easy to simply slide out and flip or pull the food.

    I thought the same thing when I unwrapped my setup. YOU NEED THEM........... I use them in all kinds of ways....DO ORDER THEM....

    For searing you wouldn't really use the rig.

    For searing you'd use the Woo
  • The woo2 and the 18 Inch CI for the LG BGE. I can pretty much mirror the same set-up as owners of the XL Egg. The woo2 brings the Adjustsble rig up to the felt line with the XL Egg. With the Big Joe the firebox is 2 1/2 deeper to the fire ring and 2 higher in the dome. I might have to keep that in mind since the lower grate will not be sitting at the felt line unless I find a way to raise the woo2 up 2 1/2 inches out for the slide guide to work for a lower grid.

    You need them...

    for searing, you'd actually use the spider. I use mine, with the weber 13" cast iron cross hatch grill. works like a charm, watch your temp thou, hotter than 600 and you'll scorch them real quick

    My advice is to get them. They add so much flexibility to the BGE. If you have questions you should call Tom and discuss. He spent a good deal of time on the phone with me, discussing different coking techniques, and walked me through my decision. I ordered the R & B combo and then a 16inch stone and couldn't be happier. The equipment is rugged and functional. The service from Tom and his company was wonderful. Enjoy the journey!
  • The woo2 has a built in spider too, the deal for the woo2 package and Adjustable rig is far better than the spider package.

    can the woo 3 and the 13 inch cast iron grate be used for searing

    or

    for the large, the Spiders and PS Woo3 drop into the fire ring for searing closer to the lump.  BGE's 13 inch cast iron grid (13CI) for the small egg is the recommended grid.

    for the xl, the Spiders and XL woo2 drop into the fire ring for searing closer to the lump.  BGE's medium (15CI) or large (18CI) cast iron grids are recommended.    

    hope this helps....t
