Woo for Mini

I'm a new owner of the BGE-a Mini. (Craig'sList $250 with wooden table!). It came with a ceramic grill, diameter 9 1/2 inches, so the Mini Woo won't fit :-(. Any suggestions for any easy way to raise the grill? I really want to do a spatchcocked chicken, but think the grill, as it is, would be too close to the heat. I'm also considering buying another grill, cast iron or steel, just so I canq buy the Woo. Thanks! Kathryn

    I had the same issue when i bought my first mini. I bought the Woo regardless and cut down the support rods and it fits just fine.

    Just buy a 10" SS and all works well.

    It works with the 9.5 just fine , just be carefully but not an issue and u save $40.
    Edit: not sure about newest model but the previous one claimed it needed 10" and its not a must.

    At least on mine it sits atop the woo...it won't latch in since its a bit smaller but sits and is usable.

    Don't shoot the messenger if it does not work out I believe my woo is also the prior model. 2nd edition of the 3 if I understand correctly.

    I think the grid changes went something like....9" porcelain, 9.5" porcelain, 10" porcelain, 9.5" stainless and back to 10" stainless.  Oh man, I need a whiskey with a splash now.......lol

    Reviving an old topic.  So I am the proud owner of a brand new mini.  For indirect, I need the mini woo and the pizza stones?



    Is this all I need for indirect or am I missing something?  I am putting together gift ideas for fathers day.  :)

  • You need one pizza stone to cook indirectly and another to cook the pizza on.

    Thank you sir!  So the two links I provided should get me going.  Anything else you would recommend?  I was thinking a cast iron grate but the stainless steel grate has given me terrific grill marks so far.

  • Nothing else is needed. CI grids are a personal preference issue. I like mine.

    I may save that for a later present.  Christmas or something.  Thanks again!
