    Not sure what you are discussing @bigphil. If you are talking about the added ceramic ring that is two or three inches thick my buddy has one and I think in the five years he's had his Egg we haven't used it when I've been at his place. I'm assuming it just creates a more raised direct so maybe we have used it but I've had a couple to many cocktails to notice.
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

    I've never cooked without it...and in fact often put bricks on it to raise the cooking grid even higher.

    I add a second full fire ring when cooking Spatchcock chicken and will use it when cooking a big batch of wings.  It lets you get the wings nice and crispy.

    I bought one to raise my cooking grill higher then I found out about the Adj. Rig & haven't used it since.

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...
