Ceramic Placesetter vs. Woo3 vs. Adjustable Rig vs. Spider

Hey guys,

I have been grillin on my parents egg for about 2 years.  I finally received my own as a wedding gift and while looking for table ideas I just now discovered all of the tools and techniques that I have been missing. 

I have previously used the ceramic placesetter, which I found great for low and slows as well as making pizzas, but I have noticed a lot of adjustable rig fans on here.  I have never seen the adjustable rig in person, but online it just looks complicated to move food around the lower level and lacks the ability to sear close to the lump like the spider.  I also love the idea of the spider, being able to do close to lump sears, as well as flipping it up near felt line, though I don't understand why they made it with no grid attached.  What do you guys recommend for a good all around riser (or is it even possible to decide on just one?)

    I use the Woo with a ceramic stone in lieu of the plate setter.

    Funny you should ask... I asked pretty much the exact same questions the on either Mon/Tues.  I got a pretty good response from the board.

    No problem man.. I searched the board before I posted, but all the info I was looking for was scattered throughout random threads...

    Its sometimes easier just to start your own. 

    Have you decided what you will be getting yet ?
