Welcome Willard.....Those are some of the best looking pizzas I've seen, nice work! How long did they take to cook? Also have you tried using regular firewood? I've used apple wood and it burns really hot and would be less expensive than the lump charcoal.

thanks,

I don't keep track as much as I should on the baking time because I check the bottom after about a min  but anywhere from 2 - 6 min.
I have not tried wood yet but that would be really cool

hey, maybe there will be a special deal for pizzamaking.com members  >:D

I love the concept, it looks clean looking, and very easy to maintain, and could be a very
big seller.  I see you have patent pending, that's very smart in this day and age.



thanks again

Yes.... I would make a special deal for members of this forum.
I have gleaned alot of information, and would like to contribute.

The pat pend is to try to recoup some of the investment in the R&D

Most companies usually have you sign up to their newsletter or something or join an interest list for something like that.  I'm sure you probably have neither at this point though but I suppose you could have people email or PM you with their email or info to "sign up", then just draw a name from a hat or something.

Thanks for sharing the pictures and information, Willard. Great looking pies! This, along with other posts I've come across recently, have really piqued my interest for exploring the use of grills to cook pizza.

I'll try to make it simple.

I'm not looking for a mailing list
or anything like that right now.
If you would be so kind and answere
the following questions, as a token of my appreciation
I will enter you in a drawing (exclusively for this forum)

1.Do you own a grill (grills) if so what type.
2.Would you use charcoal or gas.
3.Do you like cooking/baking or grilling outside.

I will write your handle or your nickname down
on a piece of paper and put it in this jar.
10 days from now I will have a drawing and post
the winner of a 2stone pizza grill on this thread. Then
you can send me a message with your shipping address
and you will be the owner of a free 2stone pizza grill.
I will pay the shipping.

(you must be in the U.S.A. on the U.S. continent)

good luck

willard

1. I have a weber gas grill (genesis something)
2. I would use gas if I won the oven
3. I live in the south.  I grill 12 months out of the year.  LOVE Grilling.  This summer, with the outside temps being well above 90 the entire month of August, and the house barely getting below 80 degrees, there was NO WAY I was cranking the oven up to 500 degrees. I cooked most of my pizzas outside (at least once a week).

Please enter me in the drawing.

Thanks

willard,

You might want to disclaim who is paying shipping costs in your contest.  There shouldn't be any assumptions.

Hey, Willard!
Great idea!  This is exciting!!  Sign me up for the drawing, please!

1) I own several grills, all charcoal, with my favorite (and most often used) being my 22 1/2" Webber Kettle.

2) I use charcoal only, mostly hickory and mesquite lump.

3) I live up north of Seattle and our climate is very mild, both summer and winter, so I grill outdoors year-round (even in the rain...oh, is it raining again?  I hadn't noticed!) I have to say that my favorite thing to grill is pizza.  I am playing with several dough recipes and the grill gives me a chance at higher temps than my kitchen oven. 

I'm keeping my fingers (and eyes!) crossed cause I sure would love to make pizzas with your invention!  Looks like exactly what I need!

~sd

edit:  Forgot to mention that I also cook outside, both a pot on the grill and with a propane turkey deep fryer which I also use to boil the Dungeness Crab that DH and I catch on Puget Sound..and make Frogmore Stew, etc.  My pizzas are, I guess, more accurately baked than grilled on the Webber Kettle.

We're all very excited about this, as you can see. :)

Weber Kettle
Charcoal
I cook predominantly inside but would like to change that. :)

Have a kettle grill, black egg modified with gas, and a conventional gas grill

Bake pizza only on both 10 months a year (even in the early winter)

The family likes pizza on the grill at least once a week

Hi Willard
Please enter me in the drawing.

I have a weber kettle grill
I cook with wood charcoal
I use the grill a fair amount but never baked on it before.

Thanks for the contest.  Your oven looks pretty cool.

Nice to see some of you use both
charcoal and gas. I love charcoal,
(nothing like that authentic charred taste)
but gas is fast and easy and because
of the moisture factor also produces
great results.

here are closeup pics of last nights and this mornings
gas fired pies. Ramp up time: 30 min, Temp: 650-700 F
Bake time: 4-5 min

regards,

willard
