Platesetter vs Woo2 for a med egg?

antonanton Posts: 1,813
I am looking for the best indirect set-up, I like the handles on the woo2, but looks like I would need the round stone or fire bricks for indirect. The Platesetter on the other hand, also raises the grill and provides the indirect function, yes? Who likes what and why? Input please. Thank you.

    You can use the pswoo2 with the platesetter. It makes it easier to remove the platesetter when it is hot using welding gloves and it can also be used without it for raised direct.

    I have the Woo2 with fire bricks and 9x13 pan. I like this setup for long meat slow and lows for ribs and brisket. My ends don't get burned as much.

    Pretty sure the PS won't work on the medium woo. You have to use a store or firebricks I got this pic from CGS website http://www.ceramicgrillstore.com/woo2-direct-or-indirect.html image

    @Paqman and @Mattman 3969, Looks like the pswoo2 is not sized for the med egg, i'll probably have to settle on the woo2 w/ stone.

    Sorry you are right. This is for a large egg.

    This is the set up I have. The two fire bricks was cheaper than the plate setter. I have a plate setter for my XL, but wanted to try something different. So far it has worked out great.
