Grilled pumpkin pie. What?

Yesterday evening our oven stopped working. So, long story short, my husband took the oven apart, and ordered replacement parts. But tonight, we want pumpkin pie, so I cleaned off the grill, and put my pie in there. It's outside baking now.
This is a blog in process as I am also getting help on the buzz.
The pie has cooked for 75 minutes, but is not done. It's still creamy. I've never relied on the thermometer in the lid before, and now I'm guessing it's not accurate. Per suggestion from chairlifter on the buzz, I've fashioned a reflector out of foil
and placed it over the pie.
I'm having fun with this little adventure.
The pie has baked another 30 minutes - still not done, but not burned either. The foil touched the top of the pie in one area - not ruined, but not picture perfect either. So now I've added two foil "supports" on either side to support the center of
the "reflector." But I'm still going to take a picture.
After another 15 minutes, the pie is done. The crust on the edges are a bit browned, but the rest is fine.
