Pizza day

Got the PizzaQue out last weekend because it was so nice out!  Made a Margarita, Sausage n Bacon, and Hawaiian pies for the game.

Thanks Travis!
I have nothing to compare the PizzaQue to.  It's the first pizza oven I've had.   I used to just throw a pie on the grill.
That being said... I love it.  It cooks restaurant style pizza in minutes.  I haven't been up close and personal with the Weber version, but for the difference in price it was worth it.  I can't imagine the Weber is much different.
It fits on the 22" kettle. Heats up quickly to over 700 degrees (comes with a therm on it.  It was pinned.  I don't have an IR thermo)
The only downside, and would be the same with the Weber...When you're done cooking, it's a PITA to shut it down.  There is no door so it's constantly getting air.  and takes forever to burn out because it uses (at least) 2 full chimney's.  If you have a heat proof place to put it on when your done, I suppose you could save some coals, but a PITA regardless.
If you like Pizza, get one.  It's faster (and cheaper) than delivery!

Thanks Dave....I was typing the above when you posted, so that is for you too! 
Not sure what else to tell you.   In the picture you can kinda see it on the kettle. 
I can post better pics if you want.

Great looking Pizzas @EricD!  I hear you on the large amount of coals you have to use and it being hard to shut it down.  I have my gasser kettle right next to my performer when I am making pizzas as well as the lid off off my 26er.  Gives me places to put hot things!  I've found it easy to lift the entire Kettle Pizza off with the lid on it if I need to add coals.  I can lift it off and place it on my gasser kettle while adding coals, then can move it right back without losing much heat.  I use my 26er as a place to let me stone cool down for a minute or two if it is getting too hot. When I am done cooking my pies I can move the KP to my gaser then shutdown my performer to save the leftover coals.  I don't think the Pizza Que has handles on it, so I'm not sure if this is an option for you.  It might be worth seeing if you can mod you PQ to put some handles on it.  You might even be able to buy the KP handles.  If you need any measurements from my KP handles just let me know.

Thanks @Nate!
@MikeRocksTheRed, You're right the PQ does not have the handles, but I have "The Beast" Grilling gloves (https://www.amazon.com/Grill-Beast-Grilling-Cooking-Gloves/dp/B00T3NZXIE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1477328071&sr=8-1&keywords=grill+beast+gloves) and I've done the same thing moving it all to the gasser.  But, I haven't perfected my workflow with the PQ yet, and forgot to get the gasser ready, so I just let it burn.  Laziness mostly!
Next time I do pizza's, I'll pay better attention to moving it around when hot and see if modding up some handles would be worth it.
