Hey guys,

Bit of a query here.

Have had my Kamado (no-name, Aussie ebay one - seems perfect) for a few years now and it's fantastic.

My query is: everything is pretty basic with how it goes together, but it came with a small, round ceramic disc - same material as the basket. I've always just had it sit at the bottom of the pit, but that was just because it was the only place it seemed to fit.

It does take up space in the bottom, would interfere with airflow and doesn't seem to have any real point (other than protecting the bottom of the keg from coals/ash)

Is this what the item is for?

thats where to put it!

what it does is prevent a single hot spot in the center down the bottom which can cause cracking :)

Cheers - was guessing something like that, but wasn't sure
