OK, here it is... decided today was as good as any to set up the Large BGE and measure how long it takes the pizza stone to get to temp...
lump temp at 890 degrees as plate setter and pizza stone go in
30 minutes later with dome temp reading 500
plate setter temp only at 379 degrees
and pizza stone only at 239 degrees
50 minutes after putting p/s and stone in - dome temp is still stuck on 500... plate setter now reads 488 degress
Pizza stone is up to 345 degrees....
90 minutes after p/s and stone go in, dome temp is still 500, the p/s setter is sitting at 585 degrees
the stone is now at 469
The nine year old can't wait any longer, so we put his pizza he built on...and 8 minutes later
The the adult versions go on...
enjoyed the exercise... but the pizza more!!!!
