Baking Steel - Bottom Broiler?
« on: November 22, 2014, 12:27:20 AM »
I have a gas oven. The broiler is in a drawer at the bottom of the oven. Maximum temperature is 550F.

I would like to start using a baking steel.

Can I place it in the drawer and preheat with the broiler on?

Would there be enough bottom heat if there is no heating source coming from below the steel?

The other option is to place the steel in the main oven and when the bottom is done, transfer the pizza to the broiler drawer.

Another option is to place the steel above my regular stone to get better top heat.

Any suggestions for getting the most out of a bottom broiler?
