What do you recomend? I have a medium egg and its platesetter...


  • Same setup as other sizes. Platesetter legs down, pizza stone sitting on platesetter with gap (you can use the egg feet). I build my pizzas on parchment paper and place paper on preheated stone. I cook at 400 dome temp for around 1/2 hour per pie.

    Any specific size or brand for the pizza stone?

    BGE has a very good Pizza Stone but it's a bit pricey. I use a Plate setter, legs down with my own $10 pizza stone on top. Get the egg up to 500°+ with everything in place. The stones must be thoroughly heated. Pizza peel to deposit and remove the pie and after about 5 minutes....yummm yummm yummm.

    Same as all pizza setups, use the search forum feature.

    BGE makes a stone for the medium that's 12" in diameter.

    How's Cali. treating you and the wife?

    I got a pizza stone @ Target $14 it measures 12& a half diameter so far it has worked great.

    I use the plate setter feet up with two fire bricks set in the center of the plate setter on their side, then the pizza stone directly on top of that. I have read so many posts on the forum about people frying their gaskets I have always been reluctant to put the plate setter in feet down.
