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

Newbie starting Grill with plate setter

I am a neophite to the egg. In fact, my new XL is being delivered tomorrow. I have a question about starting this puppy. How soon do I put the plate setter/ indirect pizza stone on after I light the charcoal? I have seen some videos where flames are quite high once it gets going. Do I put it on right after ignition then close the lid? Do I let a good roaring fire start first then put in on the flames? Do I get my coal burning, close the dome to get it to temp, the open it a put the indirect heat plate on? The latter seems the safest but I am worried about a cold stone cracking from the hot fire. Sorry this question is so rudimentary but I don't want to burn myself or break my pizza stone/woo combo from the CGS. Michael
