Plate Setter Question

I will be direct grilling tonight....doing some oysters and a big cowboy steak. After I am done grilling direct, I want to put a pork butt on for a long overnight cook. I will let the egg cool down before I put the butt on, but can I place the PS into a warm egg without fear of it cracking? Once the egg gets down to about 350-325°, I'd like to put the butt on and let it continue to cool off.

    Should be fine.

    +1 with Airwolf-and at the risk of stating the obvious, as you are getting ready to land the PS make sure you have plenty of lump for the duration-if necessary stir what 's already loaded and add more.

    Yes. The PS won't crack and will help bring your temp down faster.

    Thanks guys....and I will be sure to add more lump before I put the PS in place. I'll finally get a chance to use my new PS Woo2.

    Well the oysters and steak are done, and the pork butt is on. Had no problem with the PS.
