New to woo

BobDangerBobDanger Posts: 239
Well  after a few years cooking on my medium I finally bought a woo, stone and stainless plate. 

I probably cook 90% of all my cooks with the plate setter in feet up, so this should be interesting seeing if there is a difference.

Those using the woo with a stone...any recommendations?

Gonna try a chicken today low and slow to break it in.

    Wrap your stone in foil would be the only thing. I've never had a plate setter or coveggtor. Used a woo, stone, and drip pan on my large since getting it. Rarely cook with out them. Just got 2 half stones and ordered a woo for my xl.

    Try taking the platesetter out and cooking raised direct with the woo. Most of my medium cooks are raised direct.  I think you’ll like it.

    I would say my medium woo cooking raised direct is by far the most used configuration I use with all of my eggs (medium is used for most cooks). I bought mine years ago before they had handles and that’s my only regret.

    One last dumb question. Do you turn the plate setter hold ring upside down so the notches are down for more stability?
