Air restriction question

MasterC Posts: 1,323
New mini max user , I love my wife, with a question about air flow when using a ConvEGGtor and stone.
My stone is 13 inch in diameter leaving a 3/8 of an inch gap between the stone and egg wall. It's raised 3/8 inch over the base sitting on the convegator legs up.
Would there be enough air flow, convection? non

    IMO, your stone is far too large. I have a 14" stone for my large (which has an 18" grid). Leaves 2+" gap all around. 

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!
