Plate Setter

edited November -1 in EggHead Forum
I got the egg on Saturday - so far smoked chicken, ribs, marinated chicken breasts, and, last night, sun-dried tomato/basil/garlic chicken sausages. I find that I am even cutting back on eating during the day in anticipation! May be a solution to dieting???[p]Question - what is a plate setter? I think I may have seen one at the store where I purchased my egg - but am not sure. What is it used for? I assume that it provides a surface for indirect cooking, but why so specialized?[p]Thanks!

    Janet,
    See Wess's post below for a picture of it. A plate setter combines an indirect "shield" with ceramic mass. It can be used upside down to create a barrier for indirect cooks, with the main cooking grid sitting on top of the legs, and a drip pan (or just foil) in the surface of the plate setter. It can also be used upright with a pizza stone on top for baking.[p]I have been cookig for 2 years without one, but I just purchased one at the Eggfest. There are many ways to set up indirect cooks, and baking setups with drip pans and/or firebricks. The setter is a handy item, and easy to set up, but it is not toally necessary. Depends on your budget whether or not to add it to your goodies box.[p]Cheers!
