Barbeque, pizza stone & oven

On our 27 Catalina, we have no oven and I have used the barbeque as the oven for the boat. I have met a baker and he bakes most of his product on a pizza stone like product. He is adamant that baking on a stone is superior to anything else. I have found our pizza stone is the perfect size for our barbeque and plan to use it; have any of you baked using a stone in lieu of baking pans, etc?

Mostly for pizza, but the missus has also made bread and rolls on the stone. Next best thing to having a wood-fired brick oven.

Just remember to have it in when you turn the bbq on. If you put it in afterwards, it'll crack. Also the stone still works even if it is cracked in half

Oh, and yes, bread, pizza, naan, I think she even does fish cakes on it.

Now that you have my interest and since this seems to be a Canadian thing where do you get a pizza stone and what size barbeque does it fit?

If you can live without a food-safe certification, Unglazed Quarry Tiles can be used in place of a Pizza Stone.
At about 25 to 40 cents each, it can be a cheap experiment.
Look for Natural Red Clay (lead free) tiles. High-fired tiles do not crack as readily as low-fired tiles.
Baking Stones (& Quarry Tiles) should not be exposed to direct flame, so make certain your Bar-B-Q has a flame diverter before using them.
All stones absorb some moisture, so pre-dry (temper) the new stone prior to first baking use. A slow gradual temperature increase will dry the stone gradually, preventing cracks.

Lancerbye,

You can buy them at most kitchen supply stores - they have the best selection of sizes and shapes, but tend to be pricier. Walmart carries them for about ten bucks in a couple sizes.
