Well....I done goofed, it seems.
I'd lit the coals intending to get them hot, fast. I'd stirred the exhisting coals and added some mesquite chunks and slivers which I'd used as tender.
I'd gone inside a minute to rub the bird and came back to a hawt fire as the mesquite chunks were burning mightily.
I quickly attempted to put the smoking stone in place. Yeah, not too smart doing that without gloves.
I got one leg of the stone on the bracket and lawdjebbusissafire dropped it an inch or two to the other brackets. Short drop cracked it in half. Arrrrgggghhhhhhhh.
Good thing I still have the Webber grate and pizza stone. I'll be able to use the broken stone over the grate. Should work just fine.
Cooking around front is getting old. My backyard is covered with old deck wood and a partially finished new deck. I'm hoping the weather will cooperate so it can get finished up!
