It feels as though we’ve waited forever for college football to start, and finally the wait is over! Check out our tailgating page for recipes that are sure to become fan favorites. As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that. It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

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!!
