@Jupiter Jim brought out some amazing swag for all the cooks (Drunk Hooligans) at NCBB2, and one of my great gifts was a CI platesetter.  For those of you that have experience with this piece, what do you use it for or what is it not good for?  Thank you in advance.

    I looked at those today after my XL platesetter cracked for the 3rd time...  I'm curious as well how people are using them.

  • A free CI platesetter AND some Knob Creek after a great weekend?!?  This is bull$hit. 

    Staying tuned for some great cooks. I can only imagine high heat and seafood will work well on this contraption.

    I've already seasoned it and imagine finishing SV poke chops, SV chicken breasts and hot steaks.  Look forward to the experienced opinions.

    That will be round one, inspired by you.  I like it.

    You can use it for indirect cooks.  Shields your meat from direct radiant heat.  Helps low&slow.  Ideal for barbeque style cooking.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    I'd like BGE to have a perfectly flat one for smash burgers, they are missing the trend there. 

    Seriously though, I hear they are hot enough only if they light a fart.  Positioning is essential.

    @theyolksonyou was kind enough to give me one awhile back. 

    Perfect for reverse searing:






    Quick seared steaks:




    Kebobs (and if you're using wood skewers, the skewers won't burn):




    And the opposite side has elevated ridges to keep pots and drip pans elevated:




    Pretty handy gadget for the arsenal IMO.
