Just a word about the flower pot saucer....... I have one that is upside-down that I put my chimney starter on and one day I let the chimney sit burning for longer than usual and the thing cracked open completely across it.
So it may not survive a full charcoal basket burning for many hours.

I'd like to be remembered as one of those "larger than life" people, but as I'm only 5'6" I just work on being *wider* than life.
