Best stone for a Large Big Green Egg
« on: January 13, 2011, 03:33:44 PM »
Hi....new here and very first post :D

I have a large big green egg that I want to start cooking pizza's with.  Alot of people use the 14" BGE pizza stone but I was wondering what other options I might have that will fit the Large BGE?  Thanks ahead of time for any suggestions.

When baking, follow directions.  When cooking, go by your own taste.

Critter, if you're willing to cut masonry, split firebricks will run you about $10.  Otherwise, a round cordierite 16-17" kiln shelf will run you about $25 at a local ceramic supplier. Both will be more durable than fibrament in a grilling environment.

I've been using a Fibrament grill stone (on the metal pan it comes with) in my BBQ at 700F+ (sometimes way over 700F) for years with zero problems. I love it.

These stone work great and are good for like 2200 degrees.  Price is right also.  I have two that I use in my Bubba Keg which is the same size as a large BGE.

Guys....I ended up buying the BGE pizza stone from the local dealer.....couldn't be happier with it and the quality of customer service was exceptional.  Already made my first batch of pizza's last weekend and they turned out great. 

Gearing up for another round now and am looking for a really crsipy, thin crust and a nice white sauce. 

Thanks for all your help and advice.
