The 5-Leg Spider fits the Large Fire Ring with 5 dimples. The 5-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. 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.

Wow. The difference between using the spider plus a small grill grate (any generic one can do, I found one online for like $8 that is 8inches as the cast iron was expensive) creates amazing steaks. The regular grate that is high up on the egg just is not sufficient to create the perfect steak. The reverse sear technique is by far my favorite way to make a steak. Without the spider you can't perform the technique properly because you can't get that perfect char sear without cooking the inside of the steak.

I’ve found so many uses for it that it is one of the most important accessories to my BGE.

I bought this and the 16'' wok. The spider holds the wok perfectly in place with no slipping, even during periods of heavy stirring.
