    My Pizza Set Up (For SheilaAnn)

    SheilaAnn Here's how I'm setting up right now. I don't know if you can do this on a Joe Jr. but perhaps others do.

    So the pizza is a full foot above the charcoal basket here. I started doing this because I was burning the bottom of my pizza. Perhaps there are some Joe Jr. owners here who can shed light on how to make it work in that vessel.

    Mine is very similar to this. But, instead of bricks, I just bunch/roll up a wad of foil in the shape of a “C” to create the air gap (same principle of the bricks). I make 2 “C”s to make a full circle.

      Ah yes, C+C=O.

    My Large BGE set up is very similar too. My accessories came from the Ceramic Grill Store. Here's the link for you SheilaAnn if you want it. The CGS has good stuff and you can talk to a real person too.
