i apologize in advance if this is a stupid question...
will be firing up the WSM again this weekend for the NFL draft (first time went great, finally thankful the weather and a break in work will let me use it again!!) -- but the water pan was a friggin' mess.
i have an old pizza stone that doesn't see any action around the house... would this work as a heat sink, as opposed to filling the pan with water (or sand)?? i should think foiling it would make clean up easy enough... see pics for how it sits in the water pan (stone measurements are 13" across, 3/8" thick).
if it's an option, do i need to worry about the pocket of air 'trapped' underneath the stone in the water pan?? i dunno how hot it can get, don't really want it to crack.
i know the only way to know for sure is to try it, i just want to know if it's a waste of time even thinking about it.
sorry again if this is a dumb question.
