Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • insulating lid of propane grill?

    I don't have the time/space to build a proper wood oven, but I was considering putting my pizza stone/tile on my propane grill to cook pizzas. I can easily get the lid to 600-700F (keeping the propane on the whole time rather than pre-heating like a wood oven). Would it help to insulate this inside of the lid with some sort of blanket or fire-proof tiles? It looks like it is a double layer of stainless steel and it gets very hot on the outside. Has anyone tried this before?

    At the building supply shop, their grill had a layer of perlite insulation on top of it but it was not done to cook pizzas.

    You can always add a rack over your pizza stone and place bricks over it to act as the top of the oven if you are unable to build the full oven.

      Wow this is an old thread!

      I ended up inserting a layer of KAOWOOL in between the two stainless sheet metal layer on the lid. Then I built a jig to hold two granite tiles about 4" apart. This setup gets very hot in about 30 mins and cooks a very respectable pizza. Still, it's not a WFO, which I plan to start on next summer.
