    Looks great. On the first pic, if you raise the drip pan off the placesetter the drippings shouldn't burn. You can use the little green feet, washers, small balls of foil, etc). Fantastic looking spatched chicken.

  • Thank you, I actually have the "little green feet" and have had no use for them until now. Another tidbit of information for an issue that has been stumping me from the start.
  • Count me among those valuing the info on this forum.  It has made all the difference and continues to reduce the angle of the learning curve.

    Great color on that bird. Can I ask why you used that grill pan underneath it?

    to raise the bird on top of the vrack and because it fits :)
    and I don't think it's a pan, looks like a CI grid from something, what is it I want one :)

    Ok....hard to spot the vrack underneath it. I get that.

    I've got an old piece of CI that looks similar to that, a flat griddle on one side, raised grill like his on the other. Rectangular to fit over two burners on a stove, won't fit in my BGE though.

  • Good eye Misu, I have the Vrack on top of the BGE grid and I have placed the cast iron grid from our old gas grill on top of it to elevate the bird higher into the dome. I couldn't really fathom putting out the additional money for a CI grid when I had three of them no longer being used on my deceased gasser.

    I don't think I was using all my brain on this one. I guess the angle threw me off as I couldn't see between the bars on the grid. I thought is was a pan. My bad. :\">

  • No apology necessary friend, I'm actually interested in the CI accessory you were mentioning even though it won't work on the egg.
