  • Placesetter Cracked

    After grilling chicken, I went to put my placesetter on top of the hot grate and shut the egg down.

    The placesetter cracked in half instantly (Must have been the heat difference as I set it down very gently).

    I have a 17" heavy duty stainless drip pan and a spyder from Tom @ The Ceramic Grill Store.

    I'm going to see if this will work as a placesetter replacement.  It seems like all that is really needed is a separation
    from the fire....I'm betting the thermal mass of the placesetter is less important.

    Frankly, the placesetter is a pita, so I'm not really sad it broke.
