Season pizza stone?

I just became an Egger a couple of weeks ago, have used it every day at least once, having great fun trying pizza, casseroles, and of course lots of great BBQ. Should a new pizza stone be seasoned before using, and if so how. Also, what's the coldest temp. you can safely use an Egg at? I plan to use mine all winter, but it can get pretty cold here in Ontario, so just wondered what some of you other cold dwellers do. Just going out now to try a batch of Celtic Wolf's buttermilk biscuits.

    Smokin' Lady,
    No need to season your stone.Normal useage will do it for you.Temperature is no problem.Just remember to put the stone in right after you light your lump.No thermal shock that way .

  • Smokin' Lady,
    No, do not season a pizza/baking stone. Just use it. Don't ever clean it with soap. If you need to clean it, just use a food scraper and scrape it off. It will self-clean with use. It will get dirty and nasty looking, but that is what it is supposed to do. Good luck![p]TNW

  • Nice to meet you otobiz, I'm near Tiverton, and my Egg came from the Stove Parlour in Tiverton. Thanks for the advice, I'm looking forward to some wintery cookouts.
