Stone under the egg

Has anyone used a pizza stone instead of a tile or concrete paver under the egg (as a base/heat barrier)?

    Bill S,

    One would have to ask why. If it is a thickness issue, you still need the green feet to create an air barrier if the stone is on wood.

  • I agree with Steven. Go to Home Depot and buy you self one giant stone floor tile for a dollar.

    A paving stone at any Hardware or Home Supply Outlet is a buck or two, pizza stone $35.00? No brainer B) .
    Get a 16" stone, smaller will not quite do it, and use the feet! :)

    I used half size firebrick. It is 1 1/2 inches thick and made for heat. Readily available at a brick supply place and not expensive.

    to expensive for me to use a pizza stone, unless you have to many on hand
