We'll, I bought it. $100. Older than @cazzy... What isn't. It is clay. Actually pretty good shape. It's not a BGE but for the price, I'll settle right now.

I also have 60,er... 55 bags of rockwood for @dlk7. Sorry, someone stole 5 bags...

    I still wish it was red. That way you could beat it when you are angry with it.

    Nice score - avoid lava temps and it will last for years. What are your plans to "mount" it, table, existing nest, adding mates?

    Will a spider with a pizza stone work?
  • nolaeggheadnolaegghead Posts: 19,299
    If you have a welder, get your hand on some 1/4 rod and make a spider for a pizza stone.  If you don't have a welder, go to Harbor Freight and fork out the $80 for a cheap MIG.  Get some flux core.  Pick up a 20% off coupon from a flyer or magazine like popular mechanics.

    I don't know that I've seen a spider... But will Google it. I have a welder that'll help me. Will any pizza stone work?

    Nice score. Plate setter should be easy. 2 pieces of aluminum flat bar crossed and clay saucer.

    Whatever you do don't mount it when its hot. You'll burn your junk.

    This, but modify it so you can flip it over and use for a wok.

    May crack... at Home Depot they have a 'grill stone', meant to take the direct heat.  Welder?  Just need some rebar and a hammer! :)

    I have a ps and ci grid for a small but don't think it'll work.

    What's the edge to edge diameter of the stock grid? 12.5"? If so, probably a little too small to sit properly on a Small Woo.

    I would bet the Woo would fit but be just a bit too large for the stock grid. Otherwise, something like this (Woo & 8.5" pizza stone) would be a good set up: Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

    Edge to edge diameter of my Small Woo is 12.25"

    Being clay. Could I paint this?

    Ok... Good news is that the BGE small ci grid and ps work damn near perfect. The exterior is stained and has a small chip. The fire ring and box are cracked.

    Can I jb weld the cracks and use a high temp paint for the exterior?

    Yeah, JB weld will hold up to the heat and they used to paint Kamados...just get a high heat paint.  Obviously don't use powder coat paint - it'll burn off fast.

    Do purple and only play Jimi Hendrix when smoking on it. Grab some Abita Purple Haze and you'll be set for life.

    Jb weld will probably hold on the fire ring but not the fire box. I tried and it didn't even make it 1 time. Are you sure that is clay I have never heard of a clay grill dome.
  • henapplehenapple Posts: 15,574
    Finally got through to the factory... It is ceramic. The manual says it is safe to 700...ill only use it for low temp cooks though.
