Mini Plate Setter


Recommended Posts

I was able to make a platesetter/heat diffuser for my newly aquired mini bge. I first tried to use a small ceramic pizza stone that we have....used to have. I needed to trim some off the edges because it was too big. Well, that didn't go so well then I remembered I had a flat cast iron griddle that I got with one of my weber performers and I have never used it. So after some cutting with a jigsaw, a trip to the store for a new blade, some more cutting and some grinding....viola! I even have enough to do a half shield like a mini divide and conquer.

Now for some seasoning and away we go!

Haha, I finally got around to getting a platesetter for my mini!  Splurged and got a new ring and firebox too!  Love this little guy.

Read through this whole thread @Lumpy_Coal great iniative with original homegrown plate setter. I gave my mini to my nephew years ago. He uses it alot.

When you bought the new platesetter did it require a new ring to sit in grooves? Or did you just replace to have new?

It did require a new ring as the design was different to accommodate the legs and I just wanted a new one. 
 

I’ve seen post in the bge forum where a guy uses an extra ring to raise the grill up more.  I wanted to try this plus my original ring although was still together did have a crack.  
 

I also saw in another post where someone modified his old ring to accommodate the square legs of the platesetter. For the small extra price of the new ring, I opted to get another.  It is only a mini after all, parts are cheap when compared to the big eggs.
