Is the general thought on here to skip the plate setter and get the woo and stone from CGS.com?

Any bge accessories needed for the small? Picking mine up Saturday.

    High Que is very much needed in the Mini / Small / & not as much in the Large but still  needed.

    And yes to your question.

    good advice there...get a second stone...one for indirect piece and one to cook pizzas (or whatever) on.

    Yes to the High Que. You will be very happy with it.

    The stock charcoal grate on the small is totally useless. High Que first for sure.

    I am waiting on my high que for my large. I finally split the stock grate and have to say goodbye

    I never had issues with air flow, but might as well upgrade.

  • Is your other egg a large? If so, get the CI grate for double duty with large spider for searing.

    Bought the High Que for my small before picking it up in Georgia....should have waited.  I have no problems hitting 600 with the woo 8.5" stone on the bottom and 12" BGE stone on top, standard CI charcoal grate.  Stir-fried Kung Pao Chicken and Jean Yueh's Beef with onions and peppers from The Breath of a Wok during the entire eggfest with no problems.

    Switched back to the standard grate.  Found I was cleaning out the small every other cook with the High-Que. 

    Many have had issues I believe d/t the small platesetter restricting airflow.

    I lay a 12" pao style hand-hammered carbon steel wok from The Wok Shop directly on the grid for stir fry.

    The 5 quart double dutch oven on amazon is a perfect fit.  The lid doubles as a nonhandled skilet.

    A #12 vintage round griddle pictured on the left below is used the most.

    @Mickey I gotta disagree with you on the gate for the mini. I have no problem with temps. If any, it's keeping the temp down.

    I have them on both my Minis. Found them a world of difference after adding the first one. But that's just me. I do recommend them to everyone for the Mini and Small. I suggest to Large owners.
