  • Re: 47# Whole Pig on BGE XL - First Time

    Hammer and chisel was to break out the back bone, so we could make him bend. As far as the dome and grid temp, the dome is currently 20 degrees higher then the grid. I removed the top fire ring, placed a piece of old broken plate setter on the fire box edge and set the plate setter on that. Without the spacer, the plate setter catches on the sides. With the grid lower, I have a larger temp differential than normal. It's been as much as 40 degrees off. I wanted more height so I lowered the grid that way. I got to run now and get started on the cracklins.
