If its just one I put it in the center, as Al said thick end towards heat source. I don't think placement matters that much if you monitor your temp at that point on the grate. If I'm doing more than one I do swap em but I don't rotate. I always keep the thickest part towards the firebox. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
