Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Hot Darn! Should have thought of this sooner.

I have solved my "raise the drip pan off the plate setter" problem. It cost $5 and came with two alum cookie sheets for free. 

This thing has sat in my man box for a few months and I never thought of using it as a spacer until today. It is basically a bakers cooling rack or whatever. My wife uses them too cool cookies and cakes. 
Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

  • I also hunted for the right bricks for about 15 min until remembered I have a half a pallet of bricks in my back yard. I felt like the Village Idiot.

    I do the same thing. Also, sometimes I lay sliced of bacon on it and cook them. I love bacon that way.

    Your idea just jiggled my brain stem:  I kept the two racks from my $50 electric water smoker that I used for 15 years, the smaller one fits inside my place-setter perfectly.  Thank you!

  • Texans, sometimes you just can't tell 'em anything without pictures. This is a great idea, 'cause I've been using it for sometime.....

    Slap head! I've got tons of racks. Put a Travis stamp on it and you could sell them as an Egg accessory for $29.95.

    I would like to know more about the cakes and cookies that were on those racks before.

    "Hold my beer and watch this S##T!"


  • That is one of the few very tricks I figured out (on my own!!) right off the bat. My problem is that because I'm now using them in the Egg, my racks are here, there and everywhere and I have to go hunting for them. Chaos.
