Pizza stone and meat hanger fabrication

<p />Taking a que from the k-camp I decided to play around and make a meat hanger and lowering bracket for the pizza stone. The combination increases the cooking room vertically. I haven't tried to hang anything on it yet but have used the pizza stone on the "Y" brace to do a chicken at 350 degrees (The oem bge cooking grate/grill fits over the "Y" pizza stone hanger too). It has no problem going higher in temp even though the gap around the pizza stone to the inner firebox is pretty small. I believe I had it up to 450 before I brought it back down.
I like the "Y" bracket/pizza stone set up so far, even better than the plate sitter because the heat is forced to the sides of the firebox at a lower level. A chicken on a vertical stand doesn't sit up close to the upper vent anymore either. I believe this reduces un-even browning.
Hope someone finds this interesting or helpful.
