Deflector rig


Recommended Posts

The Akorn doesn't include a deflector.  I havent want to drop the $40 for the factory stone.  I bought a pizza stone kit from Lowes, $12 (link below).  Is there a reason this is a bad idea? should I go for the deflector made for it?  The stone just barely fits on the bottom, it's only 15".

I had that same set.  The problem is they stones will not hold up to the high heat and will eventually crack.  I keep using it and just put the pieces back together.... In the long run it's probably cheaper to just pick up the factory stone.

I bought the same one, I plan on putting a couple bars in a triangle to keep it from slipping

The fire grate for the 22.5 in Weber. Beware of using a pizza pan that is too large (eg 16 inch). I used one a couple times before I realized that my ash pan and handles were burning up from overheating. Once I switched to a smaller pan, everything worked better.

Ditto. I've broken two. The last one is pieced back together in two layers of BBQ foil. Try a foil pan with some nice clean sand in it. Works reall well. Just put some BBQ foil over the sand to catch drips.
