The Large 3-Leg Spider fits the Large Fire Ring with 3 Platesetter Notches. The 3-Leg Spider is a handy positioning platform that drops 2" into the fire ring. Add Big Green Egg's small cast iron grid (model #13CI) for searing closer to the lump, drop in our 16" Wok for Asian style cooking, or add our 13" Round Ceramic Stone & 13.5" Round Stainless Drip Pan to create the indirect set-up for two grid cooks on the Large Adjustable Rig.
The Large Spider can sit above the fire ring in an inverted position. Position it in or out of the Platesetter notches. Use the Spider in the inverted (up) position to raise the wok higher or as an elevated platform for dutch oven cooking. We recommend setting a ceramic stone under the dutch oven when simmering. The Large Spider is fabricated with Stainless. Made in the USA exclusively for CGS.

The spider is another great product found here at the ceramic store. I use it to sear my steaks close to the coals or to hold a ceramic disc for indirect. I also use it to hold a drip pan below the normal level grate. As with all the materials found here the quality is great.
