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!

Does your platesetter looks like a arsonist crime scene?

Mine does, I notice a lot of people in videos putting down a tin pan over the plate setter to catch the drippings.

    Mine gets nasty at times because i stopped using a drip pan a year ago, all i use is a layer of foil bent up on the sides to catch the drippings and evaporate them!!  But it turns clean when i do something hot like pizza..

    Crank the Egg up to very high temp, then put the platesetter in.  It will look like new after a long burn.

    Yes, usually if you have a meat that drips alot, people will put down a pan or aluminum foil.

    My plate setter looks like a black cave monster. I only use some form of gtt pan when doing a juicy low and slow. But like others have said, when you do a pizza it'll look good as knew. I prefer the seasoned look of the egg innards over clean. Working hard to get my small dirty!

    I get these lids at Sam's. Don't recall the price but they were reasonable. Depending on the food they will last several cooks.image

    Mine is all nasty looking. I have it stored on a shelf in my back yard and my dogs are always trying to lick it.
