Gas grill pizza coving
« on: July 11, 2012, 03:18:31 PM »
We got a shipment of these in all beaten up, so they replaced them.  I am going to cut this one on the line and then a co-worker will cook pizza on his grill this weekend with it.  I will let you know how it works.  It is a fireplace throat tile, so it is high heat clay.  The size is 10"HX12"Wx14"D on the outside.

Your experiment with the fireplace throat tile sounds interesting.  Good luck!   ;D

Here is the finished piece, I didn't spend a lot of time on it, just roughed it in.

Tom, I applaud your initiative.

This should be interesting.  I don't know what kind of heat the grill can pump out, but I would probably stay pretty low and go with a long-ish bake- maybe 525 or 550 on the hearth.  If you push the temps too high for a shorter bake, I think you might run into top heat issues.

I asked him to try it, he makes decent pies with same day doughs.  If it works at all, I have 2 more that I will cut to fit in my gas grill.  I did tell him to go for 650-700 degrees, 4-5 minute bake.
