cooking stone size

What is the best size cooking stone to use in an xl egg.


  • My guess would be the XL BGE baking stone is the best to use. Any bigger, and a pizza will likely cook unevenly. I don't have an XL, so there may be other who do that have a different opinion. I defer to XL owners. That being said, if you are thinking of using a non-BGE baking stone, be forewarned that many have tried to do this with a wide array of other brands stones and broken there alternative stones within their first few cooks.

    Sorry, I won't be of any specific help either, but go with BGE or ceramicgrillstore (if they make one for the XL). When you go win stones not made for the egg, you not only run the risk of breakage, but getting the wrong size which can cause air flow problems which can cause gasket problems - trust me on the last part!
