Slightly thicker stone for Blackstone
« on: December 14, 2014, 12:12:37 PM »
I was cleaning out my pantry and found my stack of various pizza stones and kiln stones I had when I converted my grill to a pizza oven.

I had 2 of these Pizzacraft round stones.  They happened to fit the Blackstone exactly.  16.5" diameter

Blackstone on top. Pizzacraft on bottom.

They are almost .1-inch thicker.  Not a HUGE difference, but it can't hurt to have a little more thermal mass on the bottom (or if I crack the stone).

Did you ever end up putting this slightly thicker stone into your BS? If so, did you notice any difference? I have a 1-inch thick 16" stone that I was thinking of stacking on top of the top stone for additional refractory heat, but don't know if that would make much of a difference or not. Or I could swap it out for the bottom stone, although I was going to raise the stone the recommended 1/8" from steel plate and thought maybe doing that as well as adding nearly 1/2" to the stone thickness might put it too close to the top.

Did you try it on the top or bottom?
