I was cooking wings the other night indirect using the spider with pizza stone and drip pan on it. It melted the pan!! These things can get hot. I didn't think dome was above 450. Although I was trying to speed it up at the end! This is the first time posting pics so hope they show up



Those are actually ripples in the pan, guess I needed a new one anyway!!!

    Put some kind of spacer between the stone and pan; should help a bit next time.
  • :pinch: ouch! That's a gonner fersure :blink:
    What kind of material was it? Did you know that into the fire can be much hotter than 450 F :whistle:

    :) Hope you still enjoyed your wings! Any pics of the cook?

    Thanks B)

    The egg can get very hot over 1000 degrees for sure.
  • Wings were good. Sorry no pics. It was a al pan from the guys that make the adj rig. Normally I do put spacers but was in a hurry so just wadded extra foil under it.
