A friend of mine wants to know if you can put the pizza stone on the BBQ. I'm guessing, no, but just wanted to be sure. Thanks!!

No. Stones can only go up to about 475 degrees and the temp cannot be controlled accurately on the grill. Oven only :)

I believe it says on the use and care that they can not be used over direct heat (= Flame)

I had someone try to use their stone on their oven burner once and you guessed it ... It broke in about 3 seconds.

You will find people who say they use their stone on their grill with no problem. I tell them they are lucky and that neither PC nor I can sanction that kind of use.

This is the key - direct heat. So, a gas grill is definitely a no-no. With a charcoal grill, you could do it, if you know what you're doing (make sure coals are gray, move them to one side, put stone on other, etc), but I would not recommend it to anyone, and I would stick to saying it voids the guarantee.

I have no idea what this is???

A trager (spelling) is a grill/smoker that uses pellets for heat. I don't have one myself, but if others have one and could explain it better, please do. Thanks!!

When you put pizza directly on your grill, are you only using a prepared crust such as Boboli? Or are you using a real dough? Would pillsbury dough be too doughy and sticky or floppy to work with? I'm guessing you use a prepared crust, but I thought I'd double check. :)

Amanda, I've used prepared crust, but then I've also used homemade crust that has been prebaked for just a bit.

I use my small bar pan on the grill and ONLY on the very top shelf of the grill. I am using the grill like an oven then. My stone is jet black (people think it is cast iron) and NOTHING sticks to it now! :)

I have uses prepared crust and rough. If using dough here are a few tips...
heat should be on low
1. make smaller individual pizzas
2. have all your toppings ready
3. lots of olive or veg. oil is KEY! Oil both sides of your dough as well as your grill.
4. lightly grill on one side, flip add toppings sparingly!, close cover for 4-5 minutes then check.

Grilled pizza is awesome, it just takes a bit of practice.

Geez I must be a total grill klutz! I tried dough and it got stuck in the slots and burned because I could not move it fast enough! I have to admit though, I am going to practice it again this summer because the parts we salvaged, were wonderful! You can not get that flavor in the oven! And no, I did not use a lot of oil so this time...!!! Thanks for that tip! Oh and I have a customer who has the square baker and he uses it all the time. He has a two burner grill and never turns on the burner on the one side. Instant oven! He has had his stone for over 4 years.
