Jumbo Joe / Mighty Pizza Stone
« on: July 10, 2018, 10:19:56 AM »
I made couple of pizzas with my Jumbo Joe / Mighty Pizza Stone (MPS) using one load of charcoal briquettes . For the last pizza I added 1 oak wood chunck to raise upper temperature. Bake time was about 6 minutes.

Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

@JEBIV @captjoe06 Thank you. This grill can make much better pizza with few mods.

Bert looks great. How is the stone supported to the jumbo Joe and what size is the stone?

@Anthony11204 thank you. I attached 3 bolts to charcoal grates to support Mighty Pizza Stone (MPS) instead of just placing it on the cooking grates, that makes loading wood chunks or additional charcoal much easier, plus I can easily adjust the height of MPS.

Thank you Bert.  I am taking my time deciding how to do this and appreciate your pics.

I tried something very similar. Raised pizza stone on the Jumbo Joe. I just used the wire handle that the stone came with and flipped it upside down. Not very sturdy, but I was careful with it. I also threw a cast iron heat diffuser underneath to try and help maintain temps, but I fired several pies in a row and couldn't maintain 500. First one came out ok, and then it was a struggle after that. I kept loosing too much heat taking the lid on and off. If you can't keep the temps over 500, ideally 700, you might as well use an oven. Let me know if you have any tips for maintaining high temps with a Jumbo Joe. Maybe I just need to double or triple the amount of hot coals I was using.
