How I remove my heat diffuser when hot

Recommended Posts

It took me about 30 minutes to build this lifter for the diffuser stone.  If you are interested I can explain how I made it.  It is aluminum.  The aluminum makes it spring loaded which holds the arms in place.  12" aluminum with a few simple bends.  and a block of wood in the center to lift.  The wood block is cut as an equilateral triangle.

The reason I did this is so I can add additional smoking chips during the rib cook etc.


I will be trying this today.

I'm a glove user too. Where do you park the hot stone when adding chunks or generally messing about with the fire during a cook? Mine gets placed on the fire pit surround.

Sasquatch, hope to see some video of your stone yanker in action.

Since I work for a granite yard I just set mine on a thick 3cm piece of granite on a table. Works great, sure you could find a small piece at a local granite yard or fabrication shop near you.

Video per request


I just use extra kitchen back splash stone to keep the grill of the table.  It does have a little lag into the video as I didn't edit.  If anybody is interested I will take photos and give my approximate dimensions.  I used 1/16" x 3/4" aluminum flat.  This material is easy to bend.
