Not quite dark here, but enough to see the flames better. You can see the flames are clean and only reflect off the stone shield. They then hit the metal I added which takes most of the heat before going up the side.
Thanks rsimon.  Very nice.  I was worried that the plate would push the flame too close to the platter, but by bending the bracket back against the sidewall the flame looks perfect.  Good idea, well executed.

High temp epoxy won't hold up at all with the kind of temperatures these ovens operate at. If the steel gets red hot, epoxy will definitely fail. Welding is pretty much the only long lasting option to consider.
Sorry, I meant ceramic adhesive.

Hi Bob.  I did a search on "high temperature ceramic adhesive +steel" and saw a few results that looked interesting (eg: fix exhaust leaks).  Have you used any of this stuff?

Dave,
I haven't used the stuff myself. I once leased body shop area of a full service auto repair business and saw the guys over there us it all the time. I think there is some product that will go to 3200 degrees. I do know that it is very dense stuff and is machinable. I've read where hot rod guys use it to shape and blend in high performance cylinder head work.

Pizza Night on the Blackstone after my mod. Worked great and I could crank it up 100% without any issues. The Pizzas are cooking in about 75 seconds or less when I get it hotter. Very tasty  :P

Here's a Sourdough Mac and Cheese I made tonight. For the dough I used TxCraig1's recipe with 75% Caputo 00 and 25% KABF. Cooked in about 90 seconds at 850F measured at the stones center. I also did two more at around 925-950 and the bottoms came out a bit too charred. I guess 850F is the sweet spot.

Some good looking pies!   I'm tempted to go to the dark side and get on the mac'n'cheese bandwagon.

 Thanks for the heads up! Ilvprobably continue to use my blue tarp since I can cover up the wheels. I'm not sure how those wheels would last in snow and rain year round without being covered.

I understand that the new models coming from Blackstone already has that heatshield in place and corrected the problem :chef:

Could someone confirm that their flame gets noticeably more powerful when going from a medium to high heat setting? With a 5 psi regulator wide open.

I ask because I thought that was the case with mine, but now I see that medium and high are the same. This is with a full tank, and two tanks are yielding the same results. If I'm not getting full power out of this thing after only about 10 cooks I'll be damned mad.

Thanks!

tommy,
It's hard to go by a dial setting. I think that some may be more "touchy" than others. Would be best if you can post a temp of the stones if you want to know if you are getting full power.
Then people can start comparing temps here.

Are you talking about a shield covering the "glow bar"?

Yes the covers the bracket on the side where the flame is and it also directs the heat and more circular motion around the oven I've seen it I've used it I love it ;D

Dusenberry,  love to see a few photos if you get a chance.  Also, can you measure how high you set your platter from the front opening ( distance to bottom of platter ) and then measure how much space there is between the back of the platter and the heat shield.  I thought that they designed it with not enough space to allow heat to come up there and reworked mine, I wonder if they moved the bracket location to solve that as well.

Sorry Barry, I must have missed where you reworked that area....it is tight back there and I'm wondering how you created space to open that up back there. Split the shield and added material?

CB, the brackets are little U pieces of metal,  I bent the one on the front right so the heat shield could be as close to the outer shell as possible,  and put an extension to the heat shield on the left side, otherwise it would not reach that bracket, and in the back, the shield does not rest in the U, instead it sits behind it.   I tried to take some photos, not sure if they are any help.  I was playing around with different heights, and found that as I raised the platter around an 1 off the front ledge,  the platter would scrape the heat shield on the rear,  so I moved it to the right, to let the heat shield catch more of the heat from the burner.

Hi everyone,

I recently bought a blackstone and have made a few pizzas with it.  I have a question for the group.

In terms of sausage on a pizza, I am wondering if I am able to put raw sausage on my pizzas or if I should cook the sausage first?  What do you guys thing?

I usually pre-cook sausage, but much depends on the amount of sausage and length of bake.  The bigger the sausage glob, the longer the necessary bake.  Just type raw sausage in the search box above (see pic) and you will find this post http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=25127.msg260981;topicseen#msg260981
