Deflector question

Recommended Posts

My Vision from Home Depot should be delivered in a couple weeks, so I'm trying to get all the extras to go along with it.  I ordered the Woo Ring with 2 15" half moon ceramic stones for smoking and using one for 2 zone grilling.  I also have a 14"  cast iron Round Griddle coming.  My question is...when I want to bake a pizza, can I use the CI round griddle as a deflector, and use the 2 moons for the pizza?  Thanks!

It should work, but I've found my deflectors have gotten so nasty I wouldn't want to put pizza on them. You might want to keep yours wrapped in foil when not doing pizza cooks.

Im considering using a 14" cast iron skillet/pizza pan as a heat deflector as well. Have you tried it? How is that working out for you?


I use a 10.5" cast fry pan on my Akorn Jr.'s with great success.  I liked the results so much I bought a second pan for the second Jr. I keep at my cabin.  I cut the handles off and ground the edges smooth.

I use it as a diffuser, cover it with foil leaving an air space  and catch drippings when I want to, turn it upside down and with an air space place a pizza stone on it and I've even done a standing rib roast in it.  I suspend mine using 3/16" round bar, not sure how that would work for your application.  In your case the bigger pan for a bigger application should work well.

My husband and I recently purchased a M series Vision grill. From the reviews, it sounds like the lava stone heat diffusers break quite frequently. I have read that some people use pizza stones as heat deflectors, and above, people are discussing using cast iron pans as deflectors. How do you hold them in place above the coals? I cannot find the vision grill deflector brackets to purchase separately--what am I missing?
