    I apologize if you answered this before, but do you have the 1/4" or 1/2" thick steel. It looks like its 1/4"?

    I wonder if the Mangrates guy has been following this thread.  THIS is how you sell things to this forum.

    It helps that this company has some credibility and high praise from respected people.

    And to clarify, I have nothing to do with Andris or The Baking Steel.  My opinions are unbiased and based on what I assess. 

    I was the lucky test dummy who was gifted a valuable tool for the arsenal.  One steel replaces a ceramic stone and Griswold griddle. 

    This all started on an older thread about the standard Baking Steel.  A few phone calls and emails later from an intrigued egger, and a round steel landed in Iowa.

    "...I have nothing to do with Andris or The Baking Steel." 

    Never had any doubt about that!  We appreciate that you're acting as the forum's guinea pig!

    Just read some of the other threads about this. Has there been a concensus about the best size for a LBGE? Does 16" seem to be best?

    Raised, indirect above the felt.  That's why a 16" will work on a LBGE, without restricting airflow correct? (PS - pending SWMBO approval, I'm in too).  I need a LAR.

    I'm just a poor boy, I roll with the 3" bolts on my grid to raise it.  I've used a 15" pizza stone  on my un-raised grid (poor boy's platesetter) and that restricts airflow.  If I raised it I bet it's OK.  Back to home depot for longer bolts!

    I will be creating a new thread here shortly with all of the details. I will also post them here.

    Ok I talked to Andris and he has finalized the pricing, coupon code, and details of the group buy so here we go.

    Who: Anyone who owns a Big Green Egg
    What: "The Baking Steel" steel designed to make really good pizzas either in the oven or in the egg
    Where: www.bakingsteel.com
    Why: Because we like great quality food!
    When: Deadline for ordering is this Sunday 4/21/13 end of day!!!!!
    How: Coupon code "biggreenegg"

    Ok, now to the nitty gritty: (PLEASE READ THIS!!!!)

    1. $15 custom order fee is waved. (Yes round is custom from what he designed the Steel to be).

    2. Price of each 1/4" round Baking Steel is $76 with free shipping to anywhere in the US. The size of the Baking Steel will NOT affect price. So one for an XL will cost the same as one for a mini, this is the only clean way Andris could do this order.

    3. You may order as many as you like, please just specify the sizes (see #4 below).

    4. Specifiy in the "Order Notes" what size you want. For Example "15 Inch Diameter." or "10 Inch Diameter."

    5. Only MA has sales tax, if you live there, sorry you will need to pay it.

    6. If you are wanting 1/2" Baking Steel please PM for more information, Andris is going to a case by case basis on these.

    7. Production dates will be from Monday 4/22 thru Saturday 5/4.

    8. Andris will ship items out as he is able within the production window.

    9. All other items he sells will be normal priced.

    10. He at this time is not able to produce a Baking Steel with a rim, he is working on this and may have something in a couple of months.

    11. No really you have to order by this Sunday if you want in on this. The code will not work at 12:01AM on Monday 4/22/13.

    12. For you Canadians, Andris will need to charge a flat $15 shipping fee. Apparently there is some custom charge as well but it varies I guess??

    13. If you want to forward this information to a fellow BGE friend by all means please do so, just don't send it to CNN, ESPN, Maxim or post it on your blog about cats.

    If you have concerns/questions please ask.

    Disclaimer:
    (I am not pretending to be a guru ordering agent and I am not going to pretend this system is perfect, I just like supporting good quality products and people. If you don't want to order, you are not hurting my feelings, just don't rant and rave about why please.)

    Anyone decided on what size will fit each egg. Thinking about a medium and a large steel.

  • chrisnjennchrisnjenn Posts: 534
    So, no matter if you buy for a small or for a XL, it is the same price. It is $3.00 off his regular price on his site which he gives free shipping also. Decent deal if you got a XL. Interesting.

    Yeah, I just need to know the best size for a Large BGE.

  • jimreed777jimreed777 Posts: 283
    ymmv - but I ordered a 14 for medium and 16 for large. Those are the stones I use high up in the dome to cook my pies.

    @chrisnjenn, how does that make @canegger a troll? He is stating fact. The baking steel is made to fit a standard oven(square with rounded corners) and this guy is custom making rounds for eggers. He is waving the normal fee plus 3 dollars in what amounts to nearly 20% off what it would cost you to ask for it on your own.
