The Big Green Egg Plate Setters is one of the most important BGE accessories you can buy. Why you ask? Well, the design of Plate Setter allows the heat of the coals to radiate within the dome of the Big Green Egg and prevent the flames and direct heat of the fire from reaching the food. This method of grilling is called “indirect grilling” meaning that you are grilling similarly to what a convention oven does… only better! Nothing will contribute greater versatility to your outdoor cooking than adding a Big Green Egg Plate Setter to your accessories collection.
