  • Spiders are available for the medium now, small too. Be careful on which stone you recommend for the medium, as stone size is dependent on old vs new fire ring.  ID of the old medium fire ring is approx. 12".  12" stone with little vertical clearan…
  • @NPHuskerFL  the 075 woo is not the best fit for the new minimax fre ring.  it works but you need to be careful.  You would need to send the woo back to us for alteration to fit the new fire ring. tom

  • great looking cook.  thanks for the recipe.   One note on the recipe, might recommend a Grade A chicken.  Grade A means the bird has been inspected by USDA and should have no flaws in the skin.  For me, important step for spatchcocking birds.  Bett…
