Indirect cooking on a small BGE

edited 1:31PM in EggHead Forum
Is there enough space in a small BGE to effectively indirect smoke/grill? I know the mini is out of the question, but I am waffling on the small...

    Sure, just buy the small plate setter and you're in business.
  • You can cook indirect on both the small and mini.

    Two racks of ribs on the small

    Stuffed cornish hens over veggies on the mini

    One rack of ribs on the mini

    A woo from CGS or similar devise and a baking stone is what you need - both my mini and medium have that set up. No problem indirect cooking as shown in Frank's pics.
  • I am not familiar with a woo from CGS, please explain?

    What are the thoughts of letting the drippings of a tenderloin hit the plate set on a small with out aluminum foil or a pie tin?

    Advised or not?

    Thank you!
  • How much do you want to smoke indirect? You will have to custom make or buy accessories to smoke on the mini. You have a platesetter and many things readily available for the small.

    You can get a good size butt or brisket flat on the small with no trouble. It is very portable and easy to use. I would get the small.

    That works fine too, but an aluminum pie tin will be the best.
  • Yes! I made and use this setup I saw from WessB all the time.
