Big Green Egg accessories

I know there's lots of BGE discussion and people contending for or against it. I recently bought the Large size BGE. I already have a Weber gas grill and a Weber kettle (the latter of which I've mostly used). So in my case, the issue is not whether the BGE is "worth it," but instead what accessories are most useful.

I bought it with the "plate setter." Before I buy a pizza stone, I think I might try using the plate setter itself as a pizza stone (on the grill grating). It does seem like an ash-catcher adapted to the egg would be a good addition.

Any other ideas about accessories that are really useful for the egg specifically? A number of things I see in catalogues just look like overpriced branded yuppified accessories, like the V-Rack and the "sittin' chicken" thing.

I have no grill lifter yet, for example, but don't know yet how crucial that might be, or when. And do they need covers for weather protection? (Midwest here--snow, heat, you name it.)
