Pizza Stone: Round grills with a 19" or larger diameter cooking grid. Can be used in grills with 18" diameter grid (Large EGG, Classic Kamado Joe, Lifesmart 22, Pit Boss 22, Primo Round) but caution is needed. There can be issues with airflow depending on stone placement. Our 15" size deflector is a much better choice for grills with an 18" to 22" diameter cooking grid.

Pair vs. Full: A pair will typically be your best choice as they are easier to move in/out of a rack system and provide more capability. Pairs can be used for pizza too. Check specific Flexible Cooking Systems (racks) to verify best use.

Important Deflector Protection: Check our 16" Stainless Drip Pan - perfect for protecting the deflector and keeping the grill clean on long, messy, barbeque cooks.

Large Big Green EGG: A Pair 16" Half-Moon Deflectors are cheaper than EGG's ConvEGGtor and offer more functionality when used with an Expander or Adjustable Rig. Note, a Pair 16" Half-Moon Deflectors provide the maximum, round, indirect coverage on barbeque cooks. 

Size: Approximate stone specifications are 16-1/8" diameter, 5/8" thickness and high heat, refractory ceramics. Stones can vary from 16" to 16-1/4" diameter.

Classic Joe: The 16" Deflectors must be used with the Divide & Conquer Accessory Rack, KJ-XR. Only Kamado Joe Deflectors (~15 actual) will fit the Divide & Conquer lowest ring position.

Use: Best to set the stone in the grill as the grill comes to temperature to prevent thermal shock. Ceramic Stones absorb moisture like sponges, so protect the topside of the Stone with foil or drip pan.

Care: Do not oil or use dish detergents on the stone. Do not clean with high heat or in the dishwasher. To clean scrape debris off and heat at moderate temperatures. They will turn dark from absorbing smoke during cooks.

Ceramic Spacers: CGS Spacers provide two useful set-ups. (1) On pizza cooks, spacers can lift the pizza stone above the ConvEGGtor or heat deflector. (2) On barbeque cooks, spacers can lift the drip pan above the heat deflector.

Quality deflector

This half stone is quite hefty and I know it will last because I’ve also had the full circle one from ceramic for about 3 years now. Paired with the woo ring, this will allow for two zone cooking. Arrived flawless. Grest job packing with other items I ordered

16" round pizza Stone

Right now I am using this to put my hot wok on to serve inside the house.
I will be using it to do two pizzas at the same time using my 18" half moon pieces for the bottom one.

Ceramic stones

These are another nice addition for the K24 pit boss/ louisiana grill kamado grill. This setup lets you create two different cooking zones at the same time, when needed.
On another note, I've also found a Chinese company "Auplex" on that makes a rotissirie for the K24 pit boss/ louisiana grill which is designated a 23.5" model as they made these pit boss/ louisiana grills The price is quite affordable until you figure in shipping, but if you buy more than one, the shipping is much more reasonable. I think your store should look into buying a number of these and you could do a good business with them.

Quality stone

At first, I thought I could just use my regular pizza stone as a heat deflector, since it was the same diameter and material; there was a little buyer’s remorse after clicking check out. I was wrong! This stone from CGS is much thicker and heavier. The packaging was cushioned and came in a timely manner. There was an actual bright “FRAGILE” sticker on outside box so it was delivered without a single dent on box corners (some stores forget the warning on fragile merchandise).

This is one solid, heavy, and thick grilling stone. Looks VERY durable. Great for cooking pizza.
