It would be on the bottom of the grill itself then, and well beyond 5 feet from the overhang, but I know flames and heat shoots up. If I need to leave the starter beyond the overhang, do I have to put it on cinderblocks, or can it sit right on the 1/4 inch cement board?


    I'd leave it right under the underhang. If you want to make yourself feel better get the chimney really going with a full load and hold your thermometer right under the underhang. Or just feel the overhang with your hand; if it's very hot then you know you have a potential problem. But I doubt you will. I think you'll be surprised at how much heat dissipates.

    Thanks, Dave. That's some really good advice.
