Can't Get Platesetter in Canada - Brisket Ready To Rock

edited March 2012 in EggHead Forum
My local authorized dealers are very little help.

  • Enquired weeks ago about a platesetter and they said they were expecting a large order of accessories very soon.
  • Called today and now - "no idea when they are coming." 
  • Called two other dealers. They said they haven't had them in a while and unsure if/when they will get others.
  • Called another website listed dealer and he had no clue why they were listed on the website.
That's 4 dealers - my next dealer would be beyond the 100km radius. Found one three hours away but says he won't ship it.

How can I get a platesetter? Will costco get them? :-)

If I can't get one - can I do a brisket without it?

    order a spider and a ceramic stone from ceramic grill store. Will have it in a few days. The stone will be your heat deflector and you can put a drip pan on top of it. Or, look into an adjustable rig set up. A lot of the eggers on here pass on the platesetter and go with one of these setups. Me, I love my platesetter.

    Good louck.

    Does someone have one in Ontario?

    I say the Woo3 is closer to a platesetter than a spider because the spider lowers the stone into the egg, where the Woo3 keeps the stone at the same height as a platesetter would be.

    The spider and the Woo3 both work great, but with the Woo3 you get raised direct grilling which is a pretty useful option, and somthing the platesetter does not do.

    Perhaps you should have inquired instead of enquired. Hahaha =))

    If you go to the London area there is a dealer in Delaware, outdoorchef.ca , I bet they will have one. I bought my egg from them and found them to be great to deal with.

    I'd second Ontario Gas BBQ in Toronto.  They have a HUGE selection of BGE's and accessories.  I've orderd and had stuff shipped several times.  Good luck.

    Get the spider and the ceramic stone form the Ceramic Grill Store. I live in Ontario and had it delivered in a couple of days. I have a platestter but use the spider setup more often. The ceramic stone is also a great pizza stone.

    I live in Niagara on the Canadian side and I wouldn't think of buying egg stuff in Canada. I get it all in the US either by mail or direct buy. Got my Xl in Buffalo and it was $500 cheaper than in Canada.

    Yup

  • The Adjustable Rig looks pretty cool. How does that compare to the plate setter?

    I find the Ceramic Grill Store website maybe one of the most confusing websites I've ever been on. They could really explain that a lot better...

    I agree, at least for newbies

    You can do a brisket without it but you need two levels, one for the drip pan and one for the meat. You can use split firebricks or a drip pan full of sand or P gravel for indirect. If you don't have a second grid you could run some small angle iron, or something, across the firegrate to support the drip pan and put the grid on top of the pan
