I have so much to learn. And when it comes to grilling, this is the best place I've found to do that. So here goes: I want to get a cooking surface that can handle higher temps than my cast iron skillet because whenever I try to use that to sear my steaks, I ruin the seasoning--which is a huge pain. I've been looking at getting a soapstone, but my aversion to paying $120 for a half moon led me to a few different places. I've been considering an 18" round stone from Soapstone Products.....but then I ran across the Fibrament-D baking stone, which got me wondering: Will a soapstone work well for pizza? Soapstone Products believes so, but I understand it's not porous and that may not allow for the "perfect" pizza crust." On the flipside, will something like Fibrament's products (or even some pizza stone) satisfy my need for a high-, even-heat searing with good heat retention? Or a third option: am I thinking about this all wrong? And to be sure, in all of the above cases, I should still be using my heat deflector below my cooking surface, right?
