95 Silverado Has Missing Exhaust Manifold Plug

I bought a brass plug for the manifold but about 5 weeks later it blew the plug out (and stripped its threads) i was wondering if i could weld the brass plug into the cast iron manifold or if i would have to do something else?

Not an exhaust expert, but I don't know that brass will take that kind of heat. What exactly are you plugging off?
