I had one. Sold the ring to a guy in FL and kept the 2 stones for spares for the BS. There's one huge thing I hate about the BlackStone.....I did not here of it before buying the Kettle Pizza!! As Craig said "the Blackstone is better in every conceivable way - and by a very large margin".
is actually an understatement!! I enjoyed the time I had with the KP but the sweet spot and margin of error with it was very small. You could not take a break and have a beer with a guest or answer the phone, start over. BS has continuous control of a gas range all nite long, compared to a campfire, with very little heat sink value to prevent huge spikes up and down. Does not come close to a real brick/stone oven in the consistancy of pie after pie bake. The BS, or for that matter the 2Stone does. And Craig has both, a brick oven and the BS as do a few others here. Side by side, BS will beat out the KP every time, all nite long. Like I said, fun for the few months I had it, MUCH more fun with the BS....and WAY more consistent pies. Of course I already had the Weber and still have it and love it, just not for pizza
