We have had some pressure from the serious pizza foodies to develop a new pizza stone/grate combination. This combo can be used on the top and bottom KettlePizza standoffs. The stone is larger, thicker and “tombstone” shaped allowing more pizza cooking surface on the bottom as well as a refractory ceiling on the top. The grates are 304 grade stainless steel and provide access points on the sides and rear for restoking. The stones are made of cordierite for extreme temperatures. Delivery is expected to be September 2012. As always this product is proudly Made in USA. More details to come!
Nice to see some more design features. It looks very interesting. Some sort of D shaped grate so that you can feed the fire from the back (by rotating the KP insert would be really nice too, though the one you are coming up with may handle that if it will accept round stones, D shaped stones and the rectangle stones.
I am adapting mine to have a ceiling. And to use as a smoker extension on the Weber as well as possibly being used for baking. Lots of possibilities for your Pizza Kettle!
