WOO3 VS Adjustable Rig (Ceramic Grill Store)

edited 2:29PM in EggHead Forum
Looking to raise my direct cooking. What does everyone recommend getting. I have a platesetter, but when I direct cook it is too close to the lump. What will give me the most bang for my bucks. Advantages and disadvantages of each?


  • I went with the AR simply from a standpoint of flexibility.
    The AR will allow me to go a bit higher than the Woo, or lower
    that the Woo if need be. You may also consider a spider; it along with the AR gives you all the space you might need.

    Good eggin'
  • You can't go wrong with the adjustable rig.It will do everything the woo will and more.I have the A R for my large and the Woo for the medium. The AR is just natural for the large and I use it nearly all the time.I honestly believe the AR should be a standard part of the large.The only time I don't use it is for baking.

    I bought a 2" fire ring, use it all the time. It lays right on top of the 4" fire ring.

    I've been using a Woo2 for years and love it, it gets used on almost every single cook now whether low and slow or grillin. I think the only time I ever take it off to cook is high temp steak searing. I don't even own a platesetter for my LBGE and wish I hadn't bought one for the XL, it sits outside now. I also bought a spider, use it for multiple tier indirects to hold a pizza stone and drip pan.

    You see a lot of guys already talking about the AR, I don't think you can go wrong with either of Tom's products. Just check em both out and see what fits best, well made stuff.
  • Thanks for all of the help. I learned a few things. This will help me make a decision. Keep on Eggin!
