Pizza stone for small egg

Has anyone found a good quality pizza stone for the small egg. I don't really intend to cook a pizza on my small, but would like something ceramic to put between the fire and casserole dishes or bean crocks when cooking something other than meat. I think the small BGE pizza stone (12"??), while it will fit on the 13" grill of a small, might be too large to allow enough heat around it to cook beans or a casserole in a reasonable amount of time.

    Steve-O, someone (I think it was Julie) posted a web site where you can order two 9" stones for around $15.00

    Steve-O,[p]As Bill posted, you should be able to go to a ceramic supply shop and find a 10" or 9" round stone. While there, get yourself a set of 4 1/2" kiln posts to put between the stone and the bake dish.[p]Here's a link to examples of kiln posts.[p]Puj

    Puj,
    Why do you use kiln posts between a pot and the pizza stone? I have a stone in my oven and whenever I put anything in the oven, I just place it on the stone. [p]TNW

    The Naked Whiz,[p]It just depends on what I'm baking/roasting, and in what order ...[p]At the moment I have a pan of lasagne baking in the Egg. It is a glass pan sitting on top of a stone and the 1/2" kiln posts. Prior to putting the lasagne in I baked 3 loaves of Pain à l' Ancienne at a much higher temp (500°F), and using the kiln posts will ensure that the heat from the stone won't burn the bottom of the lasagne.[p]Puj

    Wise One,[p]Here's the link for the small pizza stones. Santa brought me a set for Christmas, but I haven't gotten around to using them yet. They are 9"x1/2". Comes in a set of two stones.[p]Kelly Keefe

    Steve-O,
    smgrill.jpg[p]The cooking grid from the small Weber (Smoky Joe) kettle ($7 from Home Depot, Lowes, etc.) is 14" in diameter and just a tad too large to fit on the Small Egg firering.[p]Raise it up with 3.5" bolts, however, and it's a perfect fit. Now you can use the 12" BGE pizza stone on it with enough air flow around the outside for any temps you need.[p]smgrill2.jpg[p]This has become my brick oven for small pizza baking.[p]K~G[p]

    Kelly Keefe, I think that is it. In case folks have troiubl efiguring why it's not the 13" or the 16" it's because it is hidden as "Pizza for Two". But you do get two stones for $19.99
