I have had my xl egg for approx. 1 month. A coupld of weeks ago I cooked an entire dinner on the egg. From appetizer(pizza), dinner (smoked turkey, sidedish (zuc casserole), and dessert (apple pie). I had to cook the pie first,casserole, pizza, then the turkey, because I was the turkey. Is there a trick to changing the direction of the plate setter? It was very difficult when the temp gets up to 500 for pizza!
