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!

Plate Setter Lifter

Just came across this.. Seems like a good idea, but I wonder how long it will be before that lifter cracks the plate setter, especially on the XL? Seems like a lot of weight on a small piece of metal.

    I built my own from rebar for ~$4.  Works like a dream.  Styled it up with a handle and everything.  I give them away as presents to my "egg" enhanced friends.

    Real nice design on this one -- keeps the back of your hand away from the heat coming off the platesetter.  I have never had to remove mine while it was hot, so i wouldn't use this.

    Sorry to make 3 post, but I do not like this set up. Looks cheapo and flimsy.

    I've got the plate setter lifter from Dicksonbbq....works like a charm....heavy duty & solid. Well worth the shipping.

    I played with it when I was at Dickson's few weeks ago, it was a very tight fit and I also wondered about the p/s cracking under stress (especially the XL one) because of the single bar under, imho two parallel or v-shaped prongs underneath would be safer.

    btw, Dickson bbq is the host of June 1 Toronto Eggfest, all eggcessories will be discounted 20% on site.

    @Eggucator, can I be your friend?

    Yep.  Gloves work for me too.  Can't dally around tho, just like you said.

    The plate setter is thick and solid, I'd be very surprised to hear it cracked under stress because of the lifter.........again, it works perfectly fine on my large plate setter.....has a firm hold of it without any play, it actually feels overkill for the large plate setter, which was exactly what I was looking for.......a solid tool.....a solid buy.....worth every penny. I got mine here.

  • I wonder how many cooks under the influence will burn their knuckles for touching the plate setter. Gloves for me! But the two prong rebar set up actually looks more stable ;)

  • @Eggucator:  That looks great!  Is that #4 rebar?  What kind of wood did you use for the handle?

    I use gloves too...only time I ever had to pull my setter when it was hot was when I forgot to add wood chips to my firebox....otherwise I haven't needed to.

    Remove mine and then it hangs on a hook under my table. Nothing gets dirty or burned.

    @EggHeadinFlorida, not sure which tool you're referring to.  We got our plate lifter eons ago, most Chinatown grocery stores carry it.

    Elegant design.  Just had a big steel delivery the other day, I'm gonna weld one up and see how it works!
