The Open Bar Ring corals the lump for smaller cooks in the xl cooker. The open wall construction incorporates four 1/4" stainless rings to hold the lump in place and promote an even burn. The Ring dimensions are approximately 14" in diameter and 3.5" high tall. The Reducing Rings work in tandem with the XL Spiders and XL Woo2 to sear, blacken or wok closer to the lump. The 14" diameter matches nicely with Big Green Egg's medium (15CI) cast iron grid for searing. The material is 1/4" Stainless round stock with mig welds.
In comparison, the XL Open Bar Ring allows additional airflow from the side where the XL Solid Sheet Ring allows airflow thru the lump grate. Ceramic pieces shown are not included. Made in the USA exclusively for CGS.
