We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers for a backyard grill out, some brats before a baseball game or searing a steak for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

Just purchased XL BGE and have lots of questions. Is the plate setter basically used to make BGE like an oven, i.e., to be used for everything but grilling? I would like to make pizzas. What is the set-up I should use with plate setter/pizza stone? Thank you!

      Do not Make a pizza on your first light on your egg! You need to do a couple low heat (325 or under) to break it in.Thant being said.. First thing ..Make sure you have a Pizza Peel to get it from counter to egg!..Light egg..Flip plate setter over and place pizza stone on top of plate setter. run the heat way up 650-700. Make sure you burp the Egg when you open it or it may flash on you!! Throw some cornmeal on the stone and put pie on stone. I find it takes about 14-18 minutes too cook. But it all depends on your temp and your pie crust.. Just play with it and see!! Good Luck!!
