Anyone using the half stone to create an indirect zone?

I like the idea of using the half stone to create an indirect zone, I'm curious if anyone has one and what your opinion is.

    Haven't picked one up yet but I can see it being useful, especially with the Grill Extender.

    I have one. Haven't used it yet. I'm thinking it will be great for doing steaks or anything with a reverse sear.

    I liked it u can still cook direct one side and indirect for breads and such. I did burrito on stone.

  • Haven't used the half stone, but I did use the half-moon grid and pan to the same effect (meat skewers direct; veggie skewers on the half-moon).  Worked pretty darn well.

    I've used the half stone in my XL to cook sweet potatoes indirect and then cook either a  steak or some pork direct just about the time the potatoes are finished. It worked great (or grate) as I was able to do the complete cook without having to pull or move anything out of a hot egg. Best of both worlds.

    I love mine. Use it all the time. I put the half moon raised grid Otis of the stone and use it to reverse sear mostly. Also put potatoes on the stone under the rack.
