No personal experience with it...never actually even seen one. Just curious, does it do anything other than pizza? Looks big/expensive for just a pizza cooker...

Wonder if you can use a 20 lb tank. Those 1 lb tanks will get pricy pretty quick unless you have a refill kit.

Brother Jsperk has one and is really happy with it. It turns out some nice pies in a few mins. Here are a few of his threads. Its a decent product.

I got one just before Christmas. Its awesome. Heats up in about 10 minutes and cooks a pizza in 2 minutes @825*-850* I cook pizzas every Sunday for dinner. You can use whatever propane tank you have. I use a standard 5lb tank.

They are very big on http://www.pizzamaking.com These guys are hard core pizza makers and they have accepted the Blackstone with open arms.

Yes you can use it to cook other things but I just do pizzas. My xlbge cooks everything else.

This might sound silly, but why not just spend $40 and get a pizza stone for the ole Weber and press on?

I love my b.s. cooker. I started out just using a stone on the weber, then my ceramic for pizza baking. After that I bought the kettle pizza. The black stone is easier and makes better pizza in my opinion.

Yea you can turn out good pizza on weber, ceramic or whatever cooker. I just think the b.s. takes my pizza to another level. Certain recipes you need that high heat.

I was tired of cracking fireboxes in my ceramic and the kettle pizza worked good but I had to make smaller pizzas so it wouldn't burn them when trying really high temps.

I will be using it tomorrow as matter of fact.
Do you need it? No but I think it takes pizza to another level and easy to use.

It uses the 20 pound tanks. I wish I could run a gas line from house to the BS.

I make pizza once a week, I usually do two or three pies on the B.S. I started using it mid October and filled my tank two weeks ago for the first time.

Also, there has been a lot damaged units. Customer service has been great about replacing the parts you need and they are working on fixing the issues. I think mainly bad packing.

I hear ya, but some folks want it to be even easier. I've seen the videos on youtube for this thing and it look so easy to use. Some people think using just a stone in a kettle is easy and other consider that hard. I have a xl egg that I cook pizza on and after seeing the videos still want one of these in my arsenal. I wish it was a little less expensive or I'd have one right now :mrgreen:

Thanks fellers! That was my only concern about this unit. Other than figuring out how to afford one...:roll:

That what I sold to get my B.S.

Did good job but I didn't want fuss with it in the winter weather. Also takes a lot of fuel. Chimney to a chimney and half plus wood.

The OP was asking if anyone had one and whether they liked it.

I'm guessing based on your comment you don't have one... :roll:

I want to correct my earlier post. I use a 5 gallon tank (20lb) with my BS. Like jsperk said it take the pizza to a higher level. It really improved when I started using Caputo 00 pizzeria flour.

Did I need it? No, but I wanted it so I got it and very glad I did. My xlbge cooked pizzas fine, but this cooks pizzas great. Its a great addition to my other toys in the back yard.
