    @run53 you need protection on your bottom stone. Just like your top stone had from the bottom one. How you achieve this I dont know.  
    maybe a third pizza stone 
    Hmmmm.  I thought the plate setter inside my Woo would give me that protection for the first stone.

    So you would be running two stones over the top of the plate setter? 


    I wish bge would stop selling the plate setter, so many better accessories from other companies

    Ok I have done two pizzas at the same time with the Ceramic Grill store products and the Roswell Rig and they both do a great job hands down. At eggfest I like the Roswell Rig because at most eggfest they provide a plate setter not a (place setter) and I don't have to bring all of my CGS equipment with me, I travel in a Motor Home and storage space is limited. The Roswell Rig can only handle a 12" pizza and the BGE metal pizza peel will work just fine. Using the CGS equipment you need to have a lower stone to keep the bottom pizza stone from getting to hot, CGS spider and pizza stone will work, or just take the bottom stone and rotate to top and top to bottom. Either way with some practice you can rock out two at a time all day long. With either system you need to start with the first pizza on the bottom stone and when the next pie is ready to go on take the bottom pie and put it on the top to brown the cheese and the new pie goes on the bottom stone, then repeat. The CGS method is much more versatile for other cooks. The Roswell Rig is only good for doing two pizzas at the same time. I love both company's products and you can't go wrong with either company. I have done pizzas in the oven and the BGE I can't tell if one is better than the other but the BGE is outside and the oven is inside the Mobile Home with no A/C during the summer in the mountains of NC we like the heat from the egg outside. Don't have an oven in the Motor Home in Okeechobee FL winter months but do have a LG Egg and a Small Egg, it all works for us. Jim

    Sounds like maybe I just need some more practice. I have the CGS stuff but I didn't rotate the stones/pizzas from top to bottom. I put both pizzas on at the same time. The bottom stone cooked the pizza much faster than the top stone (BGE at 550-600). I guess I was only paying attention to the top pizza and when that was perfect, I took them both off only to find the bottom of the bottom pizza was black (top was perfect).

    I think two at a time is overrated. Crank the heat up, get em done in 5-7 minutes, and repeat.
