Pizza stone for indirect???

I'm doing my first brisket this weekend and was wondering about using a pizza stone to create an indirect method with my drip pan on that and briskie on a v-rack? Thoughts on this? I have not yet procured firebricks. And given the looks I'm getting, may not be procuring them SOON!

    mollyShark:[p]That is what I do. Works great for brisket, which is the only thing I cook indirect. I suggest covering the stone and pan separately with foil for easy clean-up.

    mollyShark,[p]A pizza stone will work handsomely. A drip pan will also work, but the pan will suffer in the long run. [p]Spin

    Actually I was going to use a foil pan for a drip pan and sit it on the pizza stone that I. But a good idea covering the pizza stone with foil. Will rub down briskie tomorrow and toss him on Sunday morning. It's perfect...flat, pointy, and cryovac-ed. Will let you know howsit goes. Thanks for the help!
