remember the other day, many of us were talking about ways to get a large turkey, in roasting pan, into the egg with a heat barrier? . .well, i just finished doing a test fit. .. [p]i put in my plate setter inverted, with some of those green bge 'feet', then put the pan in there with a basketball to replicate the turkey. . .everything fit great, with plenty of room to close the dome. .. i just bought a 20 pounder, and i'm comfortable with how its going to fit. ..and by having the pan sitting on the green feet, there will be airflow between the heat barrier (the plate setter) and the bottom of the pan, just like in an oven, therefor, i should be able to avoid any problems of the juices burning/scorching in the bottom of the roasting pan. . .[p]here is the plate setter w/ feet

    mad max beyond eggdome,[p]What was in that brine to make it so colorful?[p]Banker John uses some 3/4" copper plumbing 90° "ells" to keep his Dutch oven off of the plate setter when he cooks chile in the egg.
    Same idea to get the air circulating.[p]BOB

  • BobinFla,
    LOL, cranberry juice and blueberry juice . ..heeee. ..i should have known when i posted that pictures, that i'd bring in all the unemployeed comics (grinning thingy). .. .[p]yea, i finally found a use for those bge 'feet' i've got, but copper tubing would certainly work. ..someone else suggested a cake cooling rack.. . just about anything to allow the air flow. ...

  • mad max beyond eggdome,[p]Great idea. Let us know how the basketball turns out. :)
