Indirect and direct cooking at same time

Hi all, what's the best way to set the egg up so it can do both indirect and direct cooking at the same time? I see the half grill grate with drip pan is available but it got horrible reviews on Something about being too small for the egg and not laying flat on the grill.

Is it the half ceramic baking plate then?

Any suggestions? Thx


  • Threre are many ways to do it, I'm sure people will chime in. Simplest would be to just shove your lump all to one side of the egg and cook that way. Could line the cooking grid with alum foil on the side that has no lump depending on what you are cooking. Or you could get a half moon stone and woo or spider from the Then the stone would be suspended below the cooking grid. That is also a great way to get a bit more flexibility with a full stone if you don't already own a plate setter. Or you could get an adjustable/raised grid and have a full round stone above the cooking grate, with indirect above and direct below.

    Or you could just buy another egg!
