    tmelosi That appears to have replaced the one I have, and is bigger, with no lip to get in your way. Should do great!

    Can't wait to try it out, thanks for all the information.

    I couldn't find the lodge 14" that is in your post, but did go ahead and get the Lodge 15" cast iron pizza pan:

    I have a set for my Performer Deluxe. I was researching how they would work on a Summit charcoal and the rep told me all I need is another panel and it’s the same as the WSCG part number. I believe the part number for the WSCG and the 26” kettle are the same.

    I've been looking to get a good pizza stone but will probably just get the lodge pizza pan. Thanks for the info.

    I highly recommend the Lodge 14" CI pizza pan BTW. It makes great pizza in the oven or on the grill, and you don't have to worry about it breaking or cracking like with a ceramic pizza stone. Also can double as a griddle too on the grill or stove top.

    Yeah - I think the key is getting the stone, or in my case, the cast iron, preheated. With that cracked lid method that they show over on the SNS website, I've seen the dome thermometer pegged out around 550F. By putting my Lodge CI pizza pan up on an elevated grate in the dome, it helps get the pizza up in the heat more than if it were on the main cooking grate. My pizzas take 7-8 minutes at that temp, and I use my Grillgrate spatula tool to turn the pizza every 2 minutes.

    Thanks for the info, I'll check out the post.

    I've cooked pizza on the 22" with the SNS, the 26" with the vortex, and the pellet grill. The crust never seems to get as done as I think it should. Wife seems to think its fine though so that is what counts.

    I'll give your method a try.

    tmelosi you are taking the right approach by waiting to see the fit.

    I've made pizza on the kettle, and actually "baked" a frozen or a store bought deli pizza on Grillgrates on my 4 burner gas grill, but I had to only use the outer two burners, otherwise the crust burned before the pizza got done.

    My take on the kettle - the grill grates just don't have the temperature retension of a stone or even cast iron, and are not ideal for pizza. You need indirect heat to make pizza. Grillgrates are really intended for direct heat cooking.

    My technique for making pizza on the kettle is shown in this post from a while back:

    Thanks for the information. I thought I would wait until mine arrived and see how they fit on the 26".

    Have you tried to use the flat side for pizza?

  • jfmorris
    replied
    I have the standard set for the 22" Kettle, and enjoy them when I want to direct grill on my kettle or kamado, and use the entire grill versus doing a 2 zone setup. Or to use the flat side as a smash burger griddle, grill veggies, etc.

    It does look like they only use a 20" setup for the 26" kettle set, which surprises me. The radius in the picture looks the same as my set. So, yes - you could buy one more 20" panel and add it to the set to cover more of the 26" kettle. I am surprised they don't do it longer than 20" to cover more of the kettle to be honest.

    If you ordered the set already for the 22", and its shipped, just wait on that to arrive and see how it will fit if you add another panel in the middle. Or ask them. Their customer service is top notch and good about responding to questions.

    Another way to go would be two of the half moons for the 24-26 inch kettle, but they don't lock together. Those are 23" long.

    started a topic Grill Grates for 22" and 26" Weber Kettles

    Grill Grates for 22" and 26" Weber Kettles

    Grill Grates has a 15% discount for fathers day so I pulled the trigger and ordered the Grill Grates for my 22.5 weber kettle. I looked at the description for both the 22 and 26 inch Weber Kettles and it almost looks like they use the same size grates? It shows they both use the 20" panels. Maybe the radius cut panels are cut different?

    I guess my question is if they are both the same size panels, do I just need to order another 20" standard panel for it to work with my 26:?

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
