WOO 3 Extender

I'm looking for a "good" extender so I can smoke more than 2 racks of ribs at one time (I usually buy from Sam's & they're packaged 3 slabs per pk)- Since I will be using the plate setter I would appreciate feedback on using the plate setter/grate/WOO3 extender grate -- I'm also wondering if I would have room for 4 8 lb ea boston butts - I can do 2 with the plate setter & grate

Thanks in advance


  • What size is your egg?

    FWIW, I do 3 slabs on my large Egg on the main grid.  They may overlap a little, but no big deal.

    As for butts if you use the three level grid, you can place a pizza stone on the bottom as your heat deflector, then 3 butts on each of the top two levels.  If you only want to do 4 butts, all you need is the BGE Raised Grid.  Good luck!

    Edit: I am assuming you have a large egg?

  • Thanks much & yes my BGE is a large - so  I getting is that the plate setter - BGE grid and the extended grid will work well -  my problem before with the plate setter & BGE grid was that one rack was getting direct heat past the plate setter.

    Thanks much

    If you are using a plate setter no problem doing 3 racks on a rib rack. I go every other rack so they don't touch.

    The Woo3 extender is very well made and is perfect for what you are thinking of doing.  I would (and did) purchase it as opposed to the BGE extender.  It is made of polished stainless, and it is very simple, very sturdy, and reasonably priced.  It is slightly smaller than your main grid to account for the dome walls ... so keep that in mind.
  • Thanks everyone for the input -  I would like to give a "shout out" to Tom w/Ceramic Grill - after ordering the WOO 3 extender I called Tom and he was most helpful and professional - he really took the time to discuss my concerns - a great purchasing/customer service expierence

    +1 for CGS. I have the Spider, Woo3, and Woo3 extender and love them all.

  • More kudos to Tom @ Ceramic Grill. He assisted me with my adjustable rig combo and even helped me to cancel a previous order without a hitch. Great customer service.
