I have seen several references to fire brick and using foil, and the stone while cooking indirect. Could you fine folks please clarify?
I have looked through the web site, but only words, no pictures. I need pictures!

    Daddio,[p]The indirect method is cooking with a "mass" placed between the fire and meal, insulating the meal from exposure to the direct heat. The "mass" can be as simple as an empty drip pan to a layered firebrick/pizza stone setup to create a hearth oven. Generally, the lower the cooking temp, the less substantial the "mass" needs to be.[p]A foil covering on top is often used to catch any drips/splashes to make cleanup easier.[p]Sorry no pics :-{.[p]Spin
