The Plate Setter can also be placed on the Fire Ring with the legs facing up. In this position, simply place the cooking grid on the three ceramic legs and turn your Big Green Egg into a convection oven. You can place a roast directly on the cooking grid or in a V-Rack. Clean up is easy because the ceramic Plate Setter is self cleaning from the heat inside the EGG®, but you can also set a Drip Pan directly on the Plate Setter.
In the legs up position, you can add one of several Grill Extenders to the cooking grid; you now have multiple levels of cooking. With the convection effect of the Plate Setter, all levels of meat will cook evenly without turning.
If you are cooking an oversized turkey on a Vertical Turkey Roaster, take out the Fire Ring and place the Plate Setter on the Fire Box with the legs up. This lowers the cooking surface to give you much more room for an extra large turkey.
Whether you are baking or roasting, the Plate Setter is a great EGGcessory and it should be one of the first supplementary purchases you make!
The Plate Setter for the XL is slightly different than the others. The XL Plate Setter has shorter legs to better fit the dome of the XL EGG. It can be used in the standard configuration or it can be inserted between the Fire Box and the Fire Ring to provide for more air flow if desired.
