What setup is recommended...the Woo 2 and extender set. I am wanting to get the best and most usuable set to make it easier to get higher in the dome for making pizzas. I almost bought it last night, but hate to spend my money and find out I should have purchased something else that would work better. Any help will be appreciated. I am still waiting the dealer promised my large table would be ready next week.

    It depends on your budget, Woo2 and extender, spider, wok, platesetter, pizza stone, digi II, egg nest, composite shelves, (all 3)thirdhand, 2 inch fire ring, rib racks, turkey stand. I may have forgot something, but I would say these would be your bare essentials.

    newegg, I wouldn't worry too much about getting your stone high up in the dome, lid level works fine as long as you are properly pre-heated:

    whoa, way to much coffee this am, what is a good set up for PIZZA? simple platesetter and pizza stone. Just like Zippylip stated, there realy is no need the go up in the dome. Heat everything for an hour. Don't forget to put down corn meal on your stone so the dough does not stick.

    & may I add to bubba's cornmeal advice which is a must do, another tip that will greatly improve the cooking of your toppings is to bring everything to room temperature before you top your pie & I mean everything: cheese, sauce, toppings, everything. Cornmeal is King:

    About 10 years ago I was experimenting with a quary tile in my oven, I put in on the base of the oven & cranked it up to 550, after heating for a 1/2 hour or so, I slid a beautiful pepperoni pizza on it & the tile instantaneously exploded, the pizza began dripping & drooling down into the undercarriage of the oven as I was frantically trying to pick it up with the peel, here is the other side which actually has the imprint from the tile (which I also fished out of the oven in pieces practically on fire). Yea, it was a frigg'n calamity (mostly because I had to throw the pie out)

    I figured there was a good story behind that. I wish I had a picture when I learned about using cornmeal. Not as bad but I did redecorate the title on the deck!
