Don't mean to transgress here as a new forum member, but Jason, my BS arrived in pristine condition. The only modification I did was to add a $12 "thrust collar" to give the baking tray some bearings on which to sit and revolve on. I was impressed with the quality of virtually every part that came. I think I may end up needing to replace the rotisserie motor with one more powerful down the road, but that remains to be seen. The pizzas are terrific. I'm thrilled.
I wrote a long post late last night in the thread I started in Home Ovens-My First Blackstone Pizzas-OMG! It may be of interest to you.
Deb, those are beautiful creations. Love the chives on the white one! Tonight I will be making my first with Reinhart's "Neo-Neapolitan Dough". Just exploring...
Good luck with whatever you decide to do, Jason.
Dave, the pictures tell a great deal. What tells all is eating them!
