Get the Blackstone and don't look back. That's just my opinion. I was all set on the kettle pizza also. I had some good pies but to inconsistent. I had to make smaller pies to make it work better and it is more work.
Only regret was not getting it first so I could have had it all summer.

You guys contemplating a Blackstone...make sure to get a decent 1000F Infrared thermometer.  It's the only way I know you'll be able to get consistant results.

I have this one and it's invaluable.

Chuck, nice looking gun. Where is it made? Thermoworks does make a good product. If I didn't have a working IR gun I would consider it, especially at $20 off.

BS does make good pie.  But for those contemplating this, or a comparable oven, I'll put this out there. 

We have been making pizza from scratch now for 3+ years (flour, Ischia, san marzanos,  even fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, etc.).  For precise stone temp I use a calibrated HF IR gun.  But last night, we picked up a doughball from Whole Foods (it was partially frozen), and relied on Blackstone's thermostat reading between 350 and 400.  The result was a great pie - better than 90% of the restaurants around here, albeit not a Craig topper.  I should have taken a photo - burp - but there wasn't time.

All I'm saying is that after chasing an ideal, when we tried a "take and bake" doughball with (okay) scratch sauce and store-bought cheese, the result was something that we could enjoy many times over.  With a decent oven, it isn't difficult to make $5 worth of store-bought ingredients taste better than $25 down the street - and that means the Kitchenaid mothballed, no weekly feeding the fridge, no 3-day rise, no curd slicing, etc - way less muss and fuss.   

Before the end of the year we'll probably host another neighborhood party, and this time, I'm considering store-bought dough.  I think they will love it (just like those pigs in Park City did last month :P).

Here is last night's Take & Bake pie.  Two minute bake in the BS, 700F launch temp.

Dough - 1/2 of a Whole Foods dough ball, this one was whole grain so I'm eating healthy! ($3/2)
Ingredients - pep, ssg, ricotta & moz, basil

Nice looking pie. I think I may pick up a case of dough balls at Sam's club this weekend.

not seeing a good deal yet. That griddleguru site is killing you on shipping charges. Was really hoping to see this on amazon for 349 free prime shipping.
