I have a few cooks cooks under my belt now with my LBGE. I held off on buying the platesetter when I bought the egg until I could determine what indirect method might be best for me. I have read many comments here regarding indirect cooking and the systems/ingenuity is incredible. I have not solved my quandary.
I fully anticipate doing pizza, ribs, and brisket in the future. I also cook for larger groups on occasion so the rig would be good for that. The platesetter appears to be used by many veterans here. It appears to me that the platesetter takes up a larger footprint then the adjustable rig when set-up for indirect cooking. Does the platesetter result in a larger area of indirect cooking? Does it really matter? I am strongly leaning towards the AR. Do the platesetter and AR essentially function the same way for indirect cooking?
Thanks for all the information I have found here previously. I have found that I no longer need TV since I can log on here and find much better drama unfolding when following an overnight brisket cook! This site has clearly been a great source of humor and information for me...
