not eally trying to be cheap, but

I finally got a 22 1/2" weber kettle. Do you think this will work as a pizza stone? will get a good one later. Just wondering if this would get me by till then.

Re: not eally trying to be cheap, but

no time it won't work, it will split. I don't use a stone when making pizzas or calzones, just cook them indirect.

Definitely NOT work! Get a piece of unfilled and unpolished travertine. The 16 x 16 size work great. http://www.ecrater.com/p/4881087/light- ... ine-pavers

Re: not eally trying to be cheap, but

Here are a couple of good options.

http://www.axner.com/cordierite-shelf-15roundx58.aspx

http://www.amazon.com/Old-Stone-4461-16 ... 580&sr=8-2

I will say that I don't own iether one of these stones but, the reviews I here are pretty good. Another option is to go to Big Lot's and get one for ten bucks. My finding is if you don't put any stone into a hot grill or oven, it will last. The heat shock(especially if it has any moisture in it will cause it to break.
Let it heat up slowly from the time you light the grill to the desired cooking temp. When finished, I just leave it in or on the grill and let it cool down slowly.
