There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

china plate for heat deflector?

Newbie here.
I've bbq'd a long time but just got into the ceramic  thing.  I don't have a plate setter.  Cooked my first ribs last weekend.  Really great, but then I don't need to tell you guys.

Anyway, I'm a hopeless tinkerer so I'm looking at some old cheap  used  china plates from Red  Lobster, really.  I am wondering, will those plates  work as a heat deflector?  Will they hold up to the heat or will they just shatter?  From what I've read china is actually cured to a higher temperature than ceramic.
