    Great looking pizza - looks like you nailed it. I've been waiting to see threads about baking steel cooks after the recent group buy.

    @caliking I have had the regular baking steel for a few months, using it in the oven with great results, but this was first time with the round 18" on the BGE.

    The result on the BGE were very even better, as you would expect.  Higher temp and raised grid made for faster cooking times and a great crust.

    @Duganboy - How high above the felt line did you have the steel? Would it be possible for you to measure and post back?

    Looks great.  How long did you let the steel heat up before you put the pie on it?

    @caliking look for a post on this tomorrow.  I have the table all covered up, but I will measure it for you tomorrow and post it.
