It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

CGS

Hi Everyone, Getting ready to place an order with CGS. What do y'all use the most? Do I need to buy the spider, woo, and adjustable rig? I have a large Egg, with accessories, plate setter, and pizza stone. Best Wishes, Greg

  • call tom, but I don't think you need a woo and a spider. I have the rig oval combo and spider. I use them all the time. They never leave my egg.

    If you already have a plate setter and pizza stone, I would recommend a spider (and wok) and a raised/swing grid (different ways to do this, CGS is good for lots of things.)

    +1  I have the same set-up.  Call Tom at CGS.

    + 2 I have the same setup, but I too would recommend calling Tom and talking to him about your order, I probably would have saved 20-30 bucks in shipping alone had I talked to him instead of ordering what I eventually needed for the large in three separate shipments.

    I have both but if I were going for just one I would definitely go with the AR. Get a spider as well

    The choices are mind boggling! Looking through their website can be a daunting task. The options are endless! For sure getting a wok.

    The site can be intimidating, which I think is why so many of us recommend actually calling Tom and talking to him about what type of cooks you want to do.  He is a good business man and a better human.  He won't oversell you on something if he doesn't think that you are actually going to use it.

    The new Woo3 comes with a spider built in and works with the plate setter you already have...and is much less expensive. I am very happy with mine. Take a look at both and see what will work best for you.

    Anybody have a number for CGS?  I called the number on the website and it puts me to a voicemail for a completely different number.

    @tjv?

    Phone issues or misdial? You decide

    You could also PM him. His handle is tjv. I haven't called him in a while but I got the number off the web when I did and it went right to him.

    Not a misdial, tried it four times.  Maybe it is a call forwarding thing.  Ok, thanks for the help Cen-Tex.

    I figured as much. I was hoping Tom would chime in and let us know what was up.

    I received an email from Tom this morning in response to a question. It mentioned they were moving into a new facility. I'm sure it probably has something to do with that. I also ordered a Woo for my small and got a message shipping may be delayed...same reason.

    Tom called me back. Super nice and very helpful. Anybody looking for great accessories need to call and talk with him. Very helpful, thank you all for your advice. I'll let you know when my new toys come in!
