  • Re: Woo Modification

    be careful with what and how you pick up the xl woo.  We've played with handles on the xl woo multiple times but always came to the same conclusion -  It can be real tipsy if the load is slightly off center or one forgets to keep the xl woo level. 

    It does not have to be a heavy load for objects side out/off.  You get in a hurry and forget to keep the xl woo level.  Next thing ya know is that small grid is heading for the ground.  Just be careful, don't ask me how I know, but your feet are prime targets for anything falling.

    We'll be making stainless grids in a couple weeks to replace our cast iron grids.  Waiting on the cnc router to get here for cutting our grid fixtures.

  • Re: Dropped the youngest off at college

    dropping 'em off at college is one of those days you'll always remember.   seams like a simple task but ever so life changing, for both young and old.

    I dig the meal, perfect doneness of the flat iron and my favorite sides.

    next time, might try the breast ends toward the outside.  should get a better cook, less heat riding over the easy to dry out breast.

  • Re: What all can you use the spider for on the egg?

    these work in large or xl.

    elevate a pizza stone into the dome, 3 leg spider on platesetter, separation between stone and platesetter, 13"-16" stone large, 17.5" stone xl

    raise the cast iron grid up/off fire ring, easier access to the grid, great with burgers - anything you flip with a turner, grids about halfway between felt and top of fire ring.

    hold a hot object off your table, saves the table finish, any object that is bigger than the spider's ring - 11.75" large, 14" xl 

    set up indirect with stone for big cooks above, works with the adjustable rig, 13" stone large, 17.5" stone xl 

    hold a half stone under a grid to go direct and indirect at the fire ring, two zone grilling/cooking, 15" stone large, 19" stone xl

    drop a grid/skillet closer to the lump for searing

    hold a wok, up or down...most prefer up in a large

    No doubt I missed a couple.
