Problem solved with plate setter.

If I removed the fire ring, I could not install the plate setter. Fixed. Used a grinder to remove some of the "tabs" on the outside of the legs. Now it fits either with legs up or down . ;)

    Why would you remove the fire ring?

    Thanks,

    I have the older version of the XL. The dome is too short to be able to use a raised grid for much of anything of size. Now I can use it.
    I want to be able to use 2 tiers of rib racks. Now I can. :)

    From the pic it looks like the platesetter is choking off the air supply when set that low, let us know how it works out :)

    The 3 cut outs are still there around the legs. I think it will be ok?
    If it does cut off too much air, I can go legs down and still get what I'm after, or just add a little spacer.
    Before the plate setter would "wedge" against the sides. I was afraid I was going to crack the base.
