Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Dirty Platesetter

After a batch of hamburgers Monday and Chicken legs today', there is a lot of grunge on the Platesetter After taking food off, turned it over and put it back in legs down to burn it off Is this what the majority does ?

    Don't worry about it -- it will get dirty at times and clean at other times.

    + on that...although sometimes I'll do a hi temp burn to clean.  PS, AR, stones.  Being that I already fried my gasket yet again.

    That's early in the seasoning process :) just let it do what it do and eventually the whole thing will be black and seasoned.

    Don't worry about it -- it will get dirty at times and clean at other times.

    Depending on the cooks, somedays it dark and has moles all over it, some days one side is almost white :)

    I usually protect mine with thin foil, but if it get bad, i take a putty knife and scrape off the surface dirt.

    If I'm doing something especially drippy ill wrap it in foil. Otherwise, just let it go...

    The inside of my egg looks like a well seasoned wok.

    I have an old floor scraper (clean and with new blade) that I use to scrape the gunk off mine every so often.   I just scrape it into the grass and the dogs take care of the evidence.

    Spatula or putty knife and scrape right into the firebox. Done.

    Mu platesetter is still white. The legs are black. I foil mine. I read that it will leave a bad flavor on the meats if the drippings start to burn. Yes No?

  • I always use my drip pan lined with tin foil with the small air gap below.  I've got a 14" round cake pan that fits perfectly on my large placesetter.
