I use common paver stones of the thinnest size I can find. Typically 1.25 inches thick. 2 of them lined up on one side of a pit will allow you a nook to pile your fuel (briquettes or lump with wood chunks buried) into. I keep 4 around so I can create a square hole in middle of my kettle for a sort of vortex effect cook, pile fuel in middle of cooker, and set all the chicken parts or whatever all around the outside of the cooking grate. It's cheap, it's simple, it works. When they decide to break a few years down the road, it's only another $5.00 to get 4 new ones.
