Kick Ash Basket and Divider for Large BGE

This looks interesting. Does the divider work on a Large? I've heard creating indirect zones on a large BGE is easier said than done.

    With my large, the way I handle direct and indirect at the same time is to use a kettle for the direct cook.

    I have the KAB and divider for both my large and XL.  Obviously it works a lot better on the XL because it’s much more space.  On the large if I want two zone cooking  I usually use a CGS half stone and spider and bank the coals to the opposite side of the stone.  However, for reverse searing I much prefer the full conveggtor approach.

    I like using the KAB and divider on my Large when I use the rotisserie. Seems perfect to me.

    Can't speak for the divider but I love my KAB. Makes ash cleanout 1000 times easier.

    On my Large I prefer to do the duel zone higher up in the Egg using a half stone in the Adjustable Rig or Woo Ring. Using the lump divider works much better in my XL but still not as well as half stone higher up.

    Like @OhioEgger, I use my divider for my rotisserie.  It helps that accessory a lot.

    I used it for a rotisserie cook a few weeks ago.  Then, the next day I was going to cook chicken.  Normally, I cook chicken raised direct.  Because I already had coal in the back half and the divider installed, I went ahead and cooked the chicken at the fire ring and used the front half of the grill.  It seemed to cook the same as raised direct.

    The divider is a bit messy when taking it out or putting it in.  You have to have a place for the used charcoal in your KAB when installing.  Pulling it out is easier, but usually leads to black hands, regardless.
