What grate setting do you use and for what

Recommended Posts

Most of my cooks are on the main grate, except for pizza which I do using the KK baking stone on the upper level. You will find that the distance from the fire to the grate is bigger than on the BGE and therefore things cook more like they are in an oven, don't need so much about things burning before they cook. :)

To be clear - there are 4 levels in the KK: Upper, Main, Lower and Sear (upper grate upside down on the charcoal basket handles).

Upper: pizza and spatchcocked chickens.

Main: Almost everything

Lower: Normally where I sear meats. Main use is it's covered with foil as the heat deflector for indirect cooks on the Main and Upper grates. 

Sear: I rarely use this setup anymore. I can get a good sear without worrying about over charring the meat on the lower grate. YMMV
