Did some pizzas tonight on the shirley. Got a nice fire of oak and Fogo lump going.. Temp at the grate was around 650-700, but I didn't really pay that close of attention.. checked it once and just let it ride where it wanted.. It was a lot of fun. Kids made their own, then I made a couple. We used all home made salamis which really made these not suck.

I love this cooker. These pizzas were taking about 4 minutes a piece. it worked great. can't wait to start doing this more. I do need to buy a bigger stone though... I have one that is 22" across, but that is 2" too big for this so I had to use my small one. I would like find a good 20" square that would fill a whole grate. then I'll have some real fun!

Thanks for lookin

Thanks guys! Yea, we try to get the kids involved all the time. My son especially really enjoys cooking. Julian did a lot of the prep tonight. Both of em have better palettes than a lot of adults I know.

Nice to have the kids involved, teaching them well.
Food looks great also.

Any way you could take a masonry cut off wheel and cut an inch or two off your stone to make it fit in the Shirley?

Try a baking Steel, it fits perfectly in the warmer. I used it last time I made pizza in the warmer

Maybe you can get Tyler and the boys to build you one and get them to let you work it off by the hour:becky:

That's so like me, when I do a cook for orders, I seldom have any left for myself. Usually after a long cook, I have no appetite for bbq, then the next day the cravings will hit me, but then I'll just have to wait till the next time I have a day off.

I may be slightly impaired, but I just staggered out with a tape measure and it looks to be a 5" Inner diameter. It was drafting fine. I cut a bunch of oak splits in half, and once it was rocking, I spread the fire and coals across the pan, which is about 20x20

That's perfect! Thanks dude. I think that will slide in just like an expanded steel shelf. I may order 2, so I can use one over the top for extra heat. My big stone I use for bread is cordierite and I love it!
