What is a platesetter?

A plate setter is a ceramic heat deflector which serves as a barrier between the food on the Grill Guru kamado and the charcoal. 

Want to cook indirectly, such as smoking a whole chicken or salmon, slowly cooking large pieces of meat or roasting spare ribs and pulled pork? Then you need the plate setter (heat deflector). With this ceramic heat plate, you'll give your kamado the effect of an oven. Your meat, vegetables or fish will no longer burn and will cook evenly. A plate setter is also indispensable for making the most delicious pizzas. In combination with a pizza stone, of course.
