I'm confused about the heat deflector


Recommended Posts

If you're cooking pizzas and your stones arent up to temp, you're gonna end up with crap pizzas 

Part of the idea of cooking pizzas on a stone is the stone distributes heat and helps cook the base 

If you put a cold stone in a hot grill and then throw a pizza on it, not only will your dome temp drop (because youve introduced a cold mass into the dome that will suck a lot of the thermal energy out of the atmosphere) the base want be cooked by the time the top is 


If you put a cold stone into a hot grill and then wait til the stone is up to temp before putting a pizza on it, you've just lost whatever time saving you thought you were getting, and you've probably cracked your stone
