    Pizza stone on bricks, bricks on stone and grill on top of that?

    Check that last one, grill pizza stone and rib rack in drip pan or direct on stone.

    Don't worry. I doubt I've used a platesetter for ribs more than 2 or 3 times. Anything you can get under the ribs to shade them from the direct glow of the lump is fine. I usually have a cookie sheet, or cake pan on the lower grill. If the drippings start to burn later in the cook, add a little water to the pan.
