Cut out slits in the fire ring so the plate setter sits low enough for it to fit. Came out really good..image.image.image.image

    Do you have issues with the drippings falling on the plate setter and burning, giving an off-flavor to the meat? Chicken cooks (skin on) end up getting a little fiery for me once the chicken fat starts hitting the coals.

    Nice job.  What tool/blade did you use for the cut?  I tend to get a bit nervous around tools and messing something up that would viod a warranty from operator error.

    @Caliking I almost never use a drip pan and have never noticed a bad flavor. It was sizzling and smoking pretty good but it tasted really good.


    @thetrim I used a dremmel with the tile cutting attachment. Took like 10 minutes. Its basically like a drill bit with little spikes.
