I'll be curious to see how well the oven holds temp in the winter.

From Scott on page 23...

According to my calculations, the density is .056 lb/inch^3. I don't have the specs for fibrament, but cordierite runs in the .09 range, so I think it's safe to assume that this isn't cordierite.

Strictly speaking, it can't be a pure Fibrament analog without the reinforcing fibers, but it's definitely cast cement rather than kiln fired cordierite. This is basically the same material as the cheap walmart stones, just thicker.  I might recommend eventually replacing it with cordierite, if it weren't for the fact that the low density/low conductivity is an important part of maintaining the proper heat balance, so, when the stone goes, it will need to be replaced with either same stone or something equally as light/fragile.

Nice job Doc. That looks like a proper NY elite pizza.  You were generous with the sausage.   :drool:  Making me hungry.

Paul's favorable review pushed me over the edge, but I went to griddleguru and they show it out of stock.

Ö but I went to griddleguru and they show it out of stock.

Well it looks like I just slipped in before the door closed today, although my order is still listed as "processing". Hopefully I don't get the dreaded "our inventory count was off" email. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Take care!

My order still reads as processing as well.  Wonder how long it will take them to restock.

I just talked with Customer Service at Griddle Guru 'cause I was a little concerned about the order I placed yesterday. It's still listed as "PROCESSING" and the Blackstone Oven is showing out of stock. They informed me that they are not out of stock and have plenty more units on hand. The item counter on the web site needs to be reset, as it only allows a certain number of units to be included in the online order inventory. So as soon as they reset the counter, they will be available again. He also mentioned that they are a little backed up from the long holiday weekend orders and my order would probably go out today or tomorrow at the latest. So those looking to purchase, watch the site for availability. Take care!

Bob, I think they might be overwhelmed with emails as it is probably the fastest selling product ever for them.  I am guessing they sold several thousand ovens with most of the sells in the last month.

Bob,

When/if you get that BS parts list, could you post it here? I for one would be interested in having it for reference. Thanks in advance and take care!

pt, is this just a stab in the dark number(several thousand)or is there some sort of indicator to you that makes you feel this may be a close ball park figure?

Certainly Jim....the grills don't include a replacement parts list in the package I assume?

Bob,

There's a general parts list/illustration for assembly in the manual, but not something with part numbers & prices that you would use to order replacement parts.

In case anyone is interested........I called Blackstone and inquired how much the stones themselves cost in the event that they break or wear out after the 1yr warranty period....only $15 for each top/bottom stone. I think $30 for the pair is pretty reasonable, and would think the heat shield and other wear-able parts are going to be just as inexpensive.

The Blackstone customer service is very responsive and easy to deal with, anyone can call to ask about the part prices....they seemed to have that info readily available (I wish I asked about other part prices).

Bob, Iím stabbing in the dark on this one my friend but with the distribution they had at Cabelas and other outlets along with and the great price/free shipping at Griddleguru I can see 3-4K units shipped pretty easy.
