Value Tip: If you are cooking on a hooded barbeque with 4 or 6 burners, you can replace the flat hotplate with an extra set of grills (available at an additional cost from Barbeques Galore Stores). You can then use 2 x Bar-B-Chef Stones on the grill and cook pizzas for a large family or gathering.

How to use your Pizza stone
Home-made pizza tastes infinitely better when baked in a BBQ on a pizza stone. By reproducing the intense dry heat of the traditional pizza oven, this Bar B Chef pizza stone will ensure perfect crisp-based pizza. It distributes heat evenly and, to prevent sogginess, allows steam to escape from the dough during cooking.
