Awesome, pizza conversion on a weber?

Was it easy to build? Would come in very handy should we have a decent summer (fingers crossed)

I hasten to add it's not my idea, it's based on this: http://www.kettlepizza.com/?gclid=CNjuo ... tAodpScA_w

Although I hope my final design will overcome a few of the shortcomings of the original ;)

Essentially it's just a sheet of stainless steel with a slot cut in it :)

Try getting a stainless steel disc for both the top and bottom racks with the top almost to the edge and the bottom one a bit smaller. The bottom rack could have a stone instead. Envy here. :D

Thanks. I've got a 3mm thick mild steel 54.5cm disk coming for the top (couldn't afford stainless :cry: ) and a 38cm stone on order for the bottom. I'm not sure whether to high temperature paint the steel or just keep it oiled with vegetable oil: any suggestions?

I wouldn't use paint. You'll have this heated past the rating for it. Shopping for that infrared thermometer yet? :D

Thanks, I'll just use the iron pan approach then :)

I already have an infra red thermometer :D

I think I'll have a go at this for the summer - gotta love gadgets and addons!

Rustoleum do a high temp paint that may be suitable...let me do a quick google...

I'd love to know how you did this. Seen a couple of videos on youtube where people have made there own. Kettle pizza is way overpriced for what it is in my opinion.
Great job.

You need to resize them before posting. I think... :? :? :?

It all looks superb Dave.

Nice bird there saucisson. I bet you would find that you don't even need water in there, just a heat shield for indirect heat, and you can control the temperature with the vents.
