With 4 stars this one is rated a little lower than the 14 inch round one above but we did not really found out why. There were some problems with the stone arrived broken from the shipping but the performance did not get any complaints.
Still I think with about 10% of the buyers complaining about it Weber should look at this issues.

The higher ratings were pretty happy with it and claimed to make some great home made pizza on the Weber 8836 rectangular pizza stone.

Rectangular Pizza Stone For Grill

Some people prefer a rectangular pizza stone because of the shape of their grill surface or to cover most of that surface to retain all the heat.
This makes sense and that is why we looked at the best sellers and highest rated ones in this model pizza stone for grills and BBQ.

This Rectangular PizzaCraft that measures 20 x 13,5 inches is no exception. With an average of 4.3 stars from over 400 buyers there can not be to much wrong with it.
My only critical point would be the thickness of 0.67 inch but I guess I am the only one. No one else had any problem with that fact.

This is the number one seller in pizza and grilling stones in the largest online store.
Made of a material called ThermaBond and according the manufacturer this makes it shock resistant it is a FDA safe material.

The lower rating mentioned that even after using it several times it still smokes and smells no to pleasant. But most of the users mention it will be going away after a few times.

Heritage black ceramic pizza stone rectangular

(Back to Top)
heritage black ceramic pizza stone rectangularThis is a very nice ceramic rectangular pizza stone that measure 16 x 13 inch and can be use in the oven and the grill. Also available in 15 inch round from the same company named heritage products.

First like we always do is look at the lower ratings to see if they have something in common. There were 5% lower ratings and most of them were about the smell and some of them about the bad shipping and that it came in broken.

92% gave it a 4 and 5 star rating and this is a high score that I do not see to much. Big enough for a 2 person pizza. This stone is very smooth and this makes handling maybe a little hard since it does not come with handles.

When used like says in the manual and preheated it works great and makes some nice pizza according to the higher raters (3,4 and 5 stars).
I read several times that people have this stone for several years and still use it without any problems.

One of the things people raved about was the fact that spilled cheese does not stick to the stone. I think this is a great feature and will make cleaning a lot easier.

How to use a pizza stone on the grill

(Back to Top)
Some people call pizza junk food but I strongly disagree with that. A pizza made of fresh ingredients cannot be compared to the store bought ones that contain all kind of preservatives. Fresh is healthy especially when it comes from a good store.

The reason a pizza stone works better than for example a cookie sheet is the fact that the stone absorbs more moisture and retrains the heart better.
A cookie sheet is made of metal and can not absorb anything of course.
The stone also retains the heat better and most of them you can use in the oven or on the grill.
There are also special rings for in a kettle grill and they are called a KettlePizza kit and we reviewed one of them.
We will review more of them them later.

Moat of the time it is better to put the stone in a cold oven or place on a cold grill.
We must remember that temperature shocks can cause the stone to crack or fracture.

Since they absorb any liquid including dish soap, a pizza stone should be brushed of and rinsed in plain water.

What you do is try to imitate the same effects that a real pizza oven has and this includes the better flavor and the fact that the pizza crust is more crispy and less change on burning the pizza crust. The propane or charcoal of the grill adds even more flavor to it.

Temperature control.
The temperature of the stone and the air are equal important. There is a learning curve for every type of pizza stone and it might need a few trials to find out your perfect setting. Follow the directions that come with it and than add your own tweaks.

Here are some general tips:

  • Let grill and stone warm up for about 30 minutes
  • Temperature should be around 550 to 600 degr. Fahrenheit
  • Add flower to pizza bottom and pizza peel
  • Slide pizza on the stone with a pizza peel
  • cook for about 10 – 15 minutes and check doneness

I have read an article from someone who went to one of the big box hardware stores and looked for un-glazed, quarry tiles.
They look like Terracotta and can be as cheap as 30 cents a piece.
He used a few of them to make a pizza stone for in the oven.

My concern would be the possible lead in the material when you use these regular tiles as pizza oven stones.
But this site is about grilling and so we focus on the pizza stone you can use on the grill or BBQ.

One important aspect seems to be the thickness of the stone.
Some mentioned that thicker is better, so this is one of the things we will tried to implement in our pizza stone for the grill reviews. After doing a lot of the reviews we however found that the thickness is not that important as we thought it was at first.
