Kroger has some nice ones for less than $12 this week. Bought one for the oven and one for the grill. Thinking about getting a third for when one of them breaks. Pizza peels are less than $6, too.

That's why I changed to steel. I've broken too many over the years.

Cool! Thanks for the heads up. I've been wanting one for a while and that's a good price (I'm a cheap, uh...I mean thrifty b@stard Laughing ).

Mike, at the Shallowford/Sandy Plains store, they are in a stand-alone display in front of the turkey freezer near the lunchmeat/bacon/sausage case.

I recommend a kiln shelf instead. Available at pottery supply stores.

Might pay a little bit more, but they can handle temperatures over 2000℉.
Buy one, and no need to buy another one down the road.

I have one that I use in my KettlePizza set-up.
Got that sucker up to 900° or so with no indications of cracking.

I think you are onto something there Mark. I have gone through more than a few over the years.

I use one for a heat diffuser in a Chargriller Acorn (Kamado style) Q when making pizza. I have a large one that is wrapped in foil and just fits inside a 16" Chicago style pizza pan, which acts as a heat shield for the stone. This stone/pan goes below the grate, and another stone for cooking the pizza goes on top of the cooking grate. No pizza stone failures since going to that setup.

A word of warning; don't cook pizza on the grill when it is freezing/snowing outside. The moment I opened the Kamado, my cooking stone broke. Doouhhh!
