Indirect cooking w/ large BGE

edited 10:10AM in EggHead Forum
How can I cook with an indirect fire with a large BGE? If I fill up the fire box with charcoal I have red hot burning coals right underneath the food.[p]Any ideas?

    Billy Griller,
    I think the easiest way to buy a Plate Setter. Below is the link to the accessories catalog (PDF file). Page down and you'll see a photo. If you don't want to spring for one, another way is to use firebricks on the grid as your shield, drip pan on the bricks and then an elevated grid over that. You can find half-high fire bricks called "splits" at brickyards. They are about an inch thick and are perfect for this.[p]TNW

    Billy Griller:[p]Just curious, is that a problem? Is the grill too close to the fire? Is is a matter of reducing the dome temperature? Why do you prefer a indirect cook?
