We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Aluminum foil on Plate Setter Melted?

Was just cleaning/prepping my Large BGE for my next cook. Noticed after my last cook (indirect spatchcock chicken @400 grill temp) that the foil that I had wrapped around the PS was melted(?) at the edges on the fire side. It looks a bit disintegrated:


I didn't think I was anywhere near the melting point of aluminum foil? Also the fire side of the plate setter looks clean and not charred at all.
This is normal aluminum foil (not heavy duty). I could not catch all the fat off the chicken with the rectangular BGE drip pan and that was causing some flare up. Could that do it? Thanks
