What is Direct cooking?
When you cook at a high temperature in direct contact with the cooking surface, that's searing. This cooking mode falls under the "direct heat" category, as whether you're using a searing grid, skillet, or plancha griddle, you'll be utilising the heat without anything blocking or deflecting it around the dome of the EGG.
What is indirect cooking?
When you're cooking directly, the flames cook your food. That's good for smaller items that take less time to cook or for things that can easily be flipped over. However, if you've got a large cut of meat with lots of connective tissue to break down, a loaf of bread that requires consistent, even heat all around, or something you're looking to roast or smoke at a very low temperature, direct cooking won't cut it for you.
By placing a ConvEGGtor into your firebox (or by using the EGGspander System), you block the direct heat and deflect it around the dome of your EGG. Thanks to the EGG's careful design and amazing ceramics, this heat bounces back to your food, cooking it indirectly.
It couldn't be easier. Once your firebox is filled with charcoal, insert the ConvEGGtor Basket. Then, depending on what kind of cooking you'd like to do, add in either a Half Moon Baking Stone (for indirect cooking) or a Cast Iron Searing Grid (for direct cooking). By mixing and matching, you can cook with two types of heat at once.
Maintaining the Big Green Egg's temperature is easy. Simply close the rEGGulator Cap and the bottom vent slightly to reduce the temperature, or open them slightly to increase the temperature. Make sure you make only very small adjustments, as even a few millimetres can make a big difference to your temp. You'll get used to how it works in no time.
