Two Questions for AR & 2 Tier Swing Rack Owners
I'll bet most people reading the discussion title probably figured this was the usual which one is better question. Well it isn't. While being completely buried with work has kept me indoors for the last three months, it has given me a little extra spending cash. So I solved the which one to get question by getting one of each yesterday. I can see advantages to each and I do have two Eggs.
So once I started thinking seriously about actually having and using these Eggcessories one question came to mind. Trying to research the answer here created a second question. My first question is how much temperature variation is there the higher you get up inside the dome and how do you deal with it? For example how do you deal with two pizzas when one is 6" different in height than the other? I've watched the videos for both products and never see this mentioned. Do you swap their positions midway through or cook them for different times?
The other question that came to mind when trying to find the answer to my first question related to cooking methods. Sure pizza you do indirect, but I saw lots of pictures where people had their Eggs almost overflowing with food on multiple levels and I just don't see direct grilling giving you even enough heat distribution to pull this off. So when using these products do you typically cook indirect for large multi-item cooks?
I can't wait to have the time to get back to using my Eggs and I'd like to avoid some beginners mistakes with these products. Thanks in advance for any insights owners of these rigs can provide.
