Turkey, Roasting Pan, Plate Setter Question

Skids Posts: 32
edited November 2011 in Poultry

If the turkey is on a V-rack in a heavy gauaged roasting pan (with about 1/4 inch liquid), is the plate setter beneficial?  I've understood the plate setter served, in part, as the device that distinquishes "direct" from "indirect."  If the turkey is in on a V-rack in a heavy gauged roasting pan, doesn't the roasting pan serve as the device that makes this an "indirect" cook?  If you recommend that I use the plate setter, would it also be advisable to use the ceramic "feet" that came with the Egg so as to have circulation between the plate setter and the roasting pan?

Thank you.
