Question Craycort Pizzastone / Hotstone Insert?

I plan to buy the Craycort cast iron grate for my 22.5 Weber soon. Wondering if anyone has experience with the black granite insert, labeled a "pizzastone / hot stone". I can get where having one stone "quadrant" might make a nice warming area if put over indirect heat, but even if you had multiple stones I don't see how they'd effectively cook a pizza that stretched over the cast iron crosspiece. A search turned up very little info. Can anyone weigh in?

I agree with you. The stone doesn't make sense. If you are looking for a pizza stone check out the Red Sky stone. It has a section cut out on one side.

Funny thing is that I have yet to use mine. Too busy last summer.

That Red Sky stone is parked on my Amazon Wish List!

I'm also interested in the Baking Steel, great reviews for the oven or the grill. http://www.thekitchn.com/the-pizza-s...-review-178599

As excited as I am for my Craycort grill grates, think I'll pass on the stone, no matter how pretty that polished black granite is...

I use it in the oven as well all the time. Works perfect in both situations. Use it for baguettes and boules a LOT, as well as pizzas.
