It definitely would help but when you do something like that it would be a hassle to configure imho. I could try for you next time I fire it up by standing 2 firebricks on edge and put another layer of tiles over the top and slide the pizza in between the 2 layers and see if it helps. It does pretty good. But I’ll give it a try

Your way is easier than my idea! It would be an interesting experiment. Even if it doesn't help, if you have what you need to set it up and it isn't difficult, you still get to eat your test pizza!

Did a little research and found out that the burners were brass and still under warranty...they sent me new ones and I bought new knobs and only cost me 8 dollars to turn it into a pizza oven. I cut a large chimney flue and covered the grate with it It will peg the thermometer and makes great pizza. Cut the legs off to place in my pavilion
Just wondering, would it be helpful to add fire bricks (or similar) in the lid, to help radiate heat down on the pizza (more like a wood fired pizza oven)? I know you would have to start thinking about counterweights if you were to do that, but I was wondering.
Fire brick does not weigh much

Hey mike didn’t mean to hi jack your thread Jess With the thin wall light weight firebrick it would be over 30 pounds just for the lid and my little woman wouldn’t help with the pizza :shock:
