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!

Correction on earlier post about aluminum pans

I meant has anyone used an aluminum pan to make a cook indirect instead of using an iverted plate setter.[p]I started thinking today that that pizza stone material (plate setter) will hold and radiant a hot heat much more than a pan on top of the regular grate would IMO. [p]Using the guru now it's working like a champ, now let's see how the sucker turns out.

    Deetwood,
    i used to use a 12" skillet (alum) untill i kicked the vents open to clean the grill and left the pan ib the grill. its present physical form is more of a blob.

    Deetwood,
    I would avoid aluminum. If you use perforated stainless, it will hold up for high temps and let the coals breath while diffusing the heat. You can get stainless pizza pans or paper plate holders that are perforated. Hope this helps.

    Deetwood,
    I have used disposable aluminum pans under a raised grid for the last 8 years and have not had any problems, just keep the pit temp. below 250*.[p]Ed
