Pizza temps and porcelain.
« on: August 27, 2018, 09:24:50 AM »
I want to order a Pizzaque, but the high temps they are talking about, and it's  potential effect on the porcelain coating concern me. At what point does it get detrimental to the condition of the porcelain?

I wouldnít know but to play it safe donít use a kettle of color that you really like. Buy a cheap CL black kettle and have at it. Some guys here use their redheads but I wouldnít do it. Personal preference.

That's what I have. It's not touching my redhead!
I have a black OT I paid $30 for at my campsite. Which is where I'm heading this weekend. Let the experimentation begin!

This is a result of quite a few high heat pizza cooks.



The grate strap has since fallen off. I plan to bolt it back on and continue to use the kettle. You can't see the damage from the front, so it's all good by me.

One thing to think about, not all pizza styles require mega super high heat.  Unless you are going for authentic Neapolitan style, ~500*F works great.  Plus it won't pop chunks off your kettle finish.
