    Don't quote me on this but I believe that most stone manufacturer's recommend a minimum of 1". I think that is what mine said. It will still work you just won't have a good air flow/circulation.

    Edit-if you can raise it above the felt line, you'll be in better shape.

    Here it is from the site I bought mine at:
    What size FibraMent Baking Stone should I buy?

    When measuring your home oven, allow approximately a one inch opening on each side of the stone for proper air movement.

    It would be the same for the egg. Approx 1"

    The BGE platesetter leaves a 1 1/2" to 1 3/4" gap in the small egg.....3/8 will definately limit your airflow, and in turn limit you max temp..

    Nice to see your back! How was the "burning" on the river?

    Just testing the waters so to speak....we actually didn't go out on the beach to watch the actual boat burning, but we did watch a pretty good fireworks display...
  • That's probably a bit tight. I use a 12" stone in my small Egg.
