Where do you put a hot ps?

Had a great weekend back up at the scene of the ice fest. Well GW made (with some vital aid) ribs on Saturday and then had to convert the large to direct and yank the platesetter. Being a fan of 'path of least resistance' he set it down on the driveway that had over an inch of ice on it. :pinch:


I can't believe it didn't at least crack from the shock. So I took some leftover hot lump and warmed it up in an hour or so.


Great weekend of cocktails, killer meals, a handful of Crappies and eggcelent company.

    Ha I would love a couple of handfuls of Crappies! Some Walleye too. :P

    I have several fire brick around my egg so that's what I set my hot plate setter on. ;)

    I saw a guy put his extremely hot p/s down just like you did on a recently resurfaced asphalt parking lot. It ended up sticking to it and when he did finally get it pried loose it was covered with tar. I believe he later trashed it.

    the imprint in the ice looks like a UCLA bruin ;)
    context is important :)

    Adam, thanks for bringing back not-so-sweet memory. the first time i picked up my hot p/s the intense heat penetrated the leather gloves and i had to rest the p/s on the gasket :blush: :( :angry:

    I use a collapsable X shped trivet I got from Lodge. They make it for setting hope dutch ovens or their lids. It works GREAT for a hot platesetter!! Especially if you do not have a icy driveway handy. ;)

    The damn garage was all of 6 feet away. Lotsa concrete and no ice. :P

    For the record. I didn't put it there. ;)

    I did the exact same thing. It was either my hand or the gasket. The gasket was shot anyway; Rutland, here I come (when the weather finally warms up a bit!).

    That's why I still have my old gasser. It makes a great plate setter landing location :P.

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    WE did an event with the PBR here in Springfield last year. They had the EGGs well over 900* and we had to put them in the box trailer for transprt back to the store. So we rubbed them down with big chunks of ice. No issues, other then the gaskets.

    Clark, what he failed to reveal is it was late in the day when I had to switch from doing ribs to doing chicken and I had grate in one hand, plate setter with rib juiced foil in the other and yes, I was cooking solo at that point :whistle: I'll have to post some pics of the weekend if I get a chance..... Was a fun weekend none the less!
  • 2Fategghead2Fategghead Posts: 9,623
    Yes let us see the pic's. :laugh:

    How convenient (and 'Adam-like) to have left out the details! :laugh: :laugh:
