Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I have seen several references to fire brick and using foil, and the stone while cooking indirect. Could you fine folks please clarify?
I have looked through the web site, but only words, no pictures. I need pictures!

    Daddio,[p]The indirect method is cooking with a "mass" placed between the fire and meal, insulating the meal from exposure to the direct heat. The "mass" can be as simple as an empty drip pan to a layered firebrick/pizza stone setup to create a hearth oven. Generally, the lower the cooking temp, the less substantial the "mass" needs to be.[p]A foil covering on top is often used to catch any drips/splashes to make cleanup easier.[p]Sorry no pics :-{.[p]Spin
