Plate Setter Alignment

Anyone else align the plate setter, when doing indirect, so one of the legs are directly under the dome temp probe? Kind of like blocking the direct heat.

    i always put one dead center in the back, i read somewhere when i first started the egg naturally drafts towards the back creating a hot spot there.  now it's just old hat and thats what I do.

    I have a Stoker and use the Stoker Log software to monitor long cooks. I use 2 meat and 2 fire probes, one fire probe at the grid level next to the meat and one in the upper dome temp probe hole.

    Cooking a butt tonight and they are running +/- 2 degrees of each other. 

    Just curious if I am the only one that looks at things like this.

  • My gasket gap is in the back right, so I align my plate setter so that one leg is aligned with the gap, as I set my Maverick wires in the gap. My thermometer is really accurate since I was given that advice here.
  • Do exactly what "U Tarded" does pretty much for the same reasons. I need t get a stoker or digiQ! Need to do some research
