Where to buy a pizza stone larger than 14" for my LBGE???

Hello everyone,

Does anyone know where to buy a 16" or 18" high quality pizza stone? It looks like I can go up to 18" and still have about 3/4" all the way around the perimeter for airflow...

    3/4" might be enough air flow for low and slows but if you want to reach higher temp the same day you start your fire I would stick with 16" or smaller on your Large BGE.

  • Wont the bigger stones cause gasket issues guys?

  • Thank you!
  • Do you know where to find one @ 16"??
  • I would not go any larger than 14" diameter; especially if you want to cook above the gasket level (i.e., higher up in the dome) as most recommend. I bought a 16" diameter stone and tried using it twice before I gave up. You simply won't be able to get your dome temp up to optimal cooking temps for pizza.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I have the 16" from the CGS and use it on the grid extender high in the dome. Never have a problem keeping 550-650 temps. I think you would be asking for problems using anything larger than a 16" stone.
