Plate Setter Cleaning

No. 1, is it necessary to clean the plate setter after indirect cooking?  Mine gets a lot of drippings that build up on the surface.  No. 2, if cleaning is necessary, what is the best way to do it?  I know you are not to use cleansers and cleaning it in plain hot water is difficult.

  • It isn't neccessary to clean it unless you are getting off flavours from it or placing food on it directly. Just do a clean burn with the goo side down to clean it.

  • If I have something that is going to drip when using the plate setter I just cover the plate setter with aluminum foil.
  • I dont clean mine. If it gets drippings on it, by the next cook they are usualy baked off on their own.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
  • If you got drippings when you cooked legs down, then cook some pizza with the platesetter legs up ! Pizza cooking is really a good cleaning session. :) and it really good :P

  • I always go "legs up" and use a drip pan wrapped it foil, whether it be low & slow, chicken/turkey/ham, pizza, etc.  Then just throw the foil in the garbage and everything is clean.
