    Good morning smokers :)

    Just wanted to ask quickly if anyone has any advice for a pizza stone for my Vision Kamado grill/smoker.

    I just made pizzas last week and had this thing hotter than heck and it shattered my stone.

    I want to make sure whatever stone I get, It can withstand the temps that these grills kick out.

    thanks in advance.

    I started using non glazed clay pot bottoms so far so good. Only used them a few times though. You can also a use cast iron frying pan for deep dish or turn it over and use the flat bottom.

    I did lots of reaserch on this one...Untreated Round Cordierite Kiln Shelves. The link below is best size and thickness selection and WAY cheaper than Pizza Stones. Leave about 2" around the stone for convection. These handle A LOT of heat...JJ

    Make sure when using a pizza stone that you put it in when you first start your fire so it comes up to temp slowly.  Putting a stone into a hot oven can crack it.

    Nice find JJ! For those prices you could buy 2-3 for the same price as a "pizza stone"!
     
  7. Any thoughts on Travertine ?  Any toxins in them there ? 

    What kind of temps is that Kamado throwing off ?  I am trying to jury rig a cheap square charcoal grill just for pizza. Don't know what I'm doing  what the heck.
