preheating plate setter

I am cooking burgers this evening and want to out a pie on when the burgers are done. I am thinking I will preheat my plate setter in my weber and then put it in the egg when the burgers come off. Am I overlooking any flaws in this plan? Thanks!

    Sounds like a plan. I use the gasser to preheat Dutch Oven all the time.

  • Is the weber a kettle? I would cook the burgers on that and just do pizza on the egg.

    I don't think you need to pre-heat it. finish the burgers and then crank her open, drop in the setter and in <10 minutes you will be good to go. The setter will be hot before the pizza stone is, if that's what you meant by pie. If you are baking, raise the pie pan off the setter a bit and the dome temp will be good.

  • I used the Weber to preheat. Worked fine. I wasn't worried about the plate setter temp per se. I just didn't want to crack it. Thanks all!
