Anyone know how much heat the indirect plate setter can take?  Just wondering for a pizza cook.

    I will be interesting to see comments.  The plate setter was glowing red when it was created.  I suspect you can't get the Egg hot enough to fail, and if you did you'd have the whole Egg fail.

    On the other hand, I doubt putting a cool setter in a hot Egg would be a good idea, nor would dropping cool liquid on a hot one.

    I believe the plate setter and the pizza stone are made of the same ceramic the BGE is composed of. I would imagine the heat needed to compromise the plate setter would be far higher then the egg is capable of reaching.

    Well. When they fired the platesetter itself, originally, it was probably taken to a serious cone level. Like 10'or above.

    If you can sustain 2500+ degrees for 8 or 10 hours, you might want to worry. Other than that, yer probably good.
