Villa Roma,

While you are at it, maybe you can test out the pizza baking method described at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,576.msg18918.html#msg18918 (Reply 297) and at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,576.msg24930.html#msg24930 (Reply 373). Rounding up a bunch of rocks around your campsite, along with a few of your clever MacGyver-like modifications (mainly to get more top heat), your sweetie should be mightily impressed 8) :chef:.

Peter


Now you're rockin! ;)

Hi

I just got confirmation on the delivery of the bottom "rotating hearth stone"
I have decided to go with the "FibraMent" stone which many of you already
own and can attest to its superior qualities.
I am taking a real beating on the cost, but want to offer the best possible product.
The actual baking stone plays a large part in the performance of the "2stonepizzagrill"
and my tests proved the FibraMent stone performs exceptionally well, with even baking
and excellent heat retention. 
My final retail cost is $257.65 .... so the 20% discounted price for "Pizzamaking forum members"
will be $206.12 and I will start shipping by the middle or so of next week.

I can truly recommend this product to those who want to "take their pizzamaking to the next level"

regards,

willard

I'll be getting mine tomorrow as well!  I won't be able to bake on it until Sunday, but you can expect a full report to follow.  I'm making my dough tonight too.

I'm really envious guys.

How I would love to try that new magic pizza machine out here.

If anyone is coming to Canada, maybe you can bring it over to my house
and we can give it a whirl !  :P

Well I need to confess,

I'm the type of guy who reads instructions after I'm
done putting something togeather.
I hope all of you who will be setting up your 2stone pg's
are not like me.
There are some very important instructions (some just as annoying as
fully charging your battery before you use your new cell phone.)

just a few tips:

1. I will be selling modified thermometers soon. You can pick one up at
    Walmart or your favorite store. Get the 100-600 and clip off the top
    with a pair of snips, then bend it back to fit in the 2stone.
2. With gas, position the 2stone over the burners to pick up the most
    heat. If you haven't cleaned out the burners for a while. You can get
    a tip cleaner from your local welding supply house.
3. The FibraMent stone takes a little while longer to heat up. Let it get good
    and hot before you start baking.
4.  As with anything, there is a learning curve. You will get the hang of it!!


Please post pics of your pies. I cant wait to see them.

regards,
willard

Thank you abatardi but I've tried 2 pic downloading sites and have givin up..

I just wanted to let everyone know that the 2stone exceded my expectations on just my first try..
it's been what I've been looking for in making a great pizza..
high heat and perfect crust..at first when I opened the package I wasn't that sure but this baby is amazing..on my first pizza it turned out perfect..in 3 minutes the crust was perfectly full of air bubbles and charred crust from the Lehmann recipe that I have tried about 100 times in my oven to no avail..
I didn't have a temp but I bet you it was up to 700 or 800 degrees on my weber propane which only gets up to 450..
2 warning signs..
when you have the lid open of your gas weber don't grab the handle..I burned my hand something fearst..I just didn't think that the Weber handle would be so hot from the heat coming out of the 2stone..
second is to keep the wheel a spinnin..back part got slightly burnt on the bottom..like Willard said it takes some fine tuning but over all it's perfection..

here's another pizza grill that looks interesting
http://www.villaware.com/store_item.aspx?pid=2763

It doesn't have the cover part that Willard's model has, so I think this isn't going
to give as much heat on the top perhaps.

Pizzamaker, Rib Smoker, HomeBrewer, there's not enough time for a real job.

Mark,

That product has been around for a long time, as noted by this geriatric post: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,259.msg4364.html#msg4364 (Reply 3). For a more recent discourse, see http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,4948.msg41881.html#msg41881.
