Allows you to cook foods with indirect heat. When paired with Kamado Joe's Divide and Conquer Cooking System the Half Moon Ceramic Deflector will turn your Big Joe into a versatile cooking machine. With a single deflector plate you can create a two-zone fire in your Big Joe. Sear your steak over the direct charcoal heat and then move it to the indirect side to finish cooking to your preferred internal temperature without burning the outside of the steak. With a pair of deflector plates you can turn your Big Joe into a perfect smoker or wood fired oven, giving you all the indirect surface you need to smoke ribs and brisket or bake pizzas, pies or other baked goods.
