Hope this helps I'm sure others have good ways to do it also.
Thanks everyone for the great advise. I just got back from camping...
I tried out the method of two bricks wrapped in foil and the pizza stone on top.
I let it come to temperature with the charcoal.
Shortly into the cook, the stone broke in 3 pieces.
I think next time I do it, I will put three bricks on. I'll have one in the middle bracing the middle so it doesn't crack, or break there.
I think that will solve my problem. I guess trial and error is the best way to go about this. I appreciate all the insight and great suggestions. I'm taking it all in. I'll come back to this post in a few weeks when I've figured it all out.
Thanks again guys and keep on grillin!
