Left to right...

  • 30" Masterbuilt vertical electric smoker (non-digital). The rig that started it all! Burned a lot of chips and really figured out my flavors on this bad boy. Nowadays it serves mostly as a hot box when I have a lot of people over.
  • Brinkmann Trailmaster Limited offset smoker. This is my main rig. It does great for a cheaper stick burner.
  • 20" Weber Kettle. Travels well, works great direct or indirect, and makes one hell of a pizza with my PizzaQue attachment.
  • Broilmaster H3XN gas grill tapped into my home's natural gas line. Of course the most expensive unit gets the least use.
  • 18.5" Weber Smokey Mountain. Given to me recently by a friend who is no longer using it and man this thing is a lot of fun to cook on.

I've haven't worked with one personally, but I've been researching it for years and have watched countless videos.

The heat coming off a pizza oven's ceiling is distance dependent. The farther the ceiling is from the pizza, the less top heat the pizza is going to get. The ceiling height on the Weber is just too high for a balanced bake. The only way to get a fast balanced bake out of a Weber is to add a lower ceiling. What this means is that, unless you plan on buying your own steel plate to cover the kettle pizza, the only option is the top tier $400 model, and, for the bake times this is capable of, you'd be far far better off getting a $300 Ooni.

Now, if $300 is more than you want to spend, and you really want to work with the Weber, I'd get one of these.

This has the advantage of having a lower profile than the Weber, so, beyond the incredibly competitive price, the height is a big plus.

Now, like the kettle pizza insert, though, you're going to have to add a lower ceiling in the form of steel plate. You don't need a super thick slab of steel, just something thick enough so that it won't warp with the heat- 1/8" thick steel plate should be fine- you might even be able to get away with 1/16". A locally sourced 22 x 22 x 1/8 steel plate should be in the $40 realm, max.

What size is your grill? I think the 22" works better because of the extra space- ideally, you don't want any charcoal/any heat directly under the stone.

12", been doing 4 pies at a time when I fire it up and the thing still is hot for long after I'm done cooking so been adding smores for desert on a pan in there LOL. Might as well.

The fence should be crimped with pliers when you put it together and it has held up just fine inspite of others comments. I don't know for sure you need 10lbs each time if you use lump it runs hotter and stays longer. Even with minimal coals it hangs up there in temp. This last go we used mesquite lump cause Costco has a 40lb bag for $13 and it does indeed add a little flavor! Thought it cooked so fast it wouldn't be obvious in the end result.

I have the pizza que. it’s an adaption for the Weber 22 inch kettle grill. It makes great pizza and it’s fun if you are into the social aspects of cooking. It takes a lot of time and some practice and the pizza should be eaten right out of the oven while people stand around and socialize.

If that how you like to cook and entertain and if you like cooking challenges, I would say go for it. If you are just looking to make the odd pizza, likely not worth the investment.

u/Rorschach120 · 2 pointsr/Cooking

I've got one of these for my Weber and I find that it works well as long as all of the heat is coming from around the stone and not from underneath the stone. Otherwise your pizza will burn on the bottom before the top gets cooked.

The kit I have includes a little mesh fence to prevent coals from going into the center of the grill, but I found that setting the stone on top of some bricks works the best. Just make sure the bricks are arranged so that air can pass through them or else it will take forever to heat the stone.

Another way to accomplish this would be to have the coals at the same level as the stone by putting them on the grate or another stone (similar to how a wood-fired oven works).

One flaw I see in your approach listed would be that not enough heat is going to get stored in the lid in order to cook the top of the pizza (even with the coals setup properly). I would keep broiler on stand-by to finish the pies in this case.

I hope it turns out delicious, cheers!

It's this:

Insert for your Weber charcoal grill that turns it into a pizza oven. I mod it using a heavy duty foil under the lid to get it hotter.

Has anyone tried this item for cooking pizza?

Obviously there are better cookers out there but for the price, this doesn't seem too bad.

Has anyone tried one of these grill-top pizza ovens?

I'm not looking to spend what I'd need to spend on an Ooni, like the larger capacity, and I'm tired of heating up my house with the oven on at 500F for an hour and a half. Skeptical, especially because this one is Pizzacraft, but thought I'd see if anyone else has had any luck.
