Butt w/ no plate setter.....

As an egg newbie, I've been having a great time for the past few months w/ my new toy (large BGE). Ready to try a pork butt tomorrow. Went to local supplier, out of plate setters, more on order.

So, what do you recommend for getting indirect heat w/o a plate setter? I have a v rack.

Thanks for any suggestions,

  • You could put a grate down low, fire bricks on top of that then a drip pan.I did that before I got a plate setter. But i'd reserve one of those setters that are on order. Happy 4th

    Just set the V-rack in an Aluminum pan, that will act as indirect barrior.

    If you don't have firebricks - you need some insulator - maybe a pizza stone?

    In addition to the aluminum pan, I would put something in it - water with maybe a can of dr pepper or coca cola... sounds strange, but you'll hear about the dr pepper coca cola in the near future.

  • If you use a pan with liquid in it, be careful when opening the egg. Others have been blasted with steam when opening the lid.

    Thanks to all for the advice. Butt is in over an hour now. Used a grill extender down in the charcoal w/ water pan on it, all below the grill. V rack holding the butt. Looks a-ok, will know in 9 hours or so!

    Cheers
