I have 4 racks of ribs thawed and ready to cook I went out to get the BGE and discovered that one of the legs has broken off right on the corner I know how to fix the the placesetter but what to do with the ribs. Would I be able to cook them without the placesetter?

    Do you have any of the raised grate options?

    I'm sure you can find something around the house to prop up that corner and finish your cook. Next you get a Woo3 or a Woo2 and a 14" drip pan from CGS with a 14" BGE pizza stone. I put my Platesetter back in the box after I got them and never usedd it again. CGS accessories are very versatile and better made than BGE stuff, IMHO. You won't regret it.

    Can't you use it inverted?

  • Crumple up some aluminum foil to make a leg for the plate setter.
  • Get a couple of metal rods or some flat stock cut to size then lay them on the fire ring and sit your plate setter on them legs up.
