What is a good, economical Infra red gun and peel to use with the blackstone pizza oven?

I guess you need to define "economical".

I use a Thermoworks IR Gun.
It is on sale now for $49 (regularly $69) with $3.99 shipping.

I don't know opening for Blackstone, so someone else will have to help you there.

IR non-contact thermometer $12.00 at Menards or $40.00 at Home Depot. Metal blade peel for peeling the pizzas out of the oven and a short handle wood peel for use as a prep-peel and peeling the dressed skins into the oven. Ace Hardware has a 12" short handle wood peel for about $25.00 but you can buy from the internet for about $5.00 less. There was also some pretty good discussion on wood peels a short time ago.

I have two of these. $20 and they work great. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JCFPODM/?tag=pmak-20

Check the specs on whatever you buy and make sure it goes up to 500C or more.

After some experience you will be able to correlate the BS thermometer to your desired IR reading and  corresponding bake time.

If you want a really cheap one I use this which they sell here in the UK too

Don't expect it to be as accurate as others, but if you measure the temp of something 300c and its 302c its fine for me...
