It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

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!!
