Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

medium owners what stone do you use for indirect cooks?

10 inch seems to small, 13 inch seems to big on the woo.  Just asking. Used the 10 inch for brisket yesterday and it worked but seemed like I burned a lot of charcoal.
I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.
Inbetween Iowa and Colorado, not close to anything remotely entertaining outside of football season.

    The medium plate setter is about 10 1/2" across, obviously the legs are the full 15 1/2" to 15 3/4" depending on the vintage. I use a dollar store 12" steel pizza pan, foil wrapped and it sits inside the setter legs leaving a nice +1" all around for air flow. 
    I only use the pizza pan if the meat I'm cooking will overhang the setter. 
    I've never noticed any difference in charcoal use wether using the setter alone or the "larger" pizza pan. Temp is temp, and fuel use should be constant regardless of what indirect set-up you are using.
