Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Forgive me if this has been asked and answered.

My hubby got the Large BGE for Father's Day (I'm going for the "Wife Of The Year" award), and we've been using it quite a bit.  I've done smoked meatloaf (yummy!) based on a recipe from this site, and smoked a turkey breast (there were no leftovers!).  We just got half a steer the other day, so we are both itching to get using the Egg again.

Is there a specific time for smoking or grilling meats?  Or is it more of a "learn as you go" kind of thing?

We have a place setter, but unfortunately, the company we bought the BGE from didn't show or tell me how to use it.  So I've been just pushing the coals to the side and doing indirect heat that way since we typically grill first beforehand.  Can you (again, I know this is a silly question) put the place setter on after grilling so you can do some indirect cooking/smoking?
