where to place pizza stone in oven

this might sound like a stupid question but ill be taking the first trip in our 26bh this coming weekend. I have read about using pizza stones in the oven in other threads but am unsure of where to place it. Does it need to be placed on the wire baking rack or do you place it on the metal sheet directly above the burner? any and all recommendations welcome!

Wire baking rack. Make sure to put it in the oven BEFORE you turn the oven on and allow sufficient time for the stone to absorb the heat. In my home oven I usually allow 15 minutes of preheat time.

thanks for the response spoon059 good info on the pre heat, do you place the baking sheet directly on top of the pizza stone then?

If you are looking to deflect heat with the stone then on top of the metal base above the flame.
Another lighter variation is to put a 1/4 sheet pan upside down over this to act as an air cushion. This keeps the base of cookie sheets cooler and makes it more like a convection oven. I prefer this method for variuos reasons.

BTW, even if you don't make pizza in your oven, stones are excellent for keeping your oven at an even temp.

I don't look to make pizza just want to even out the oven temperature so nothing gets burnt.

We have one and it definitely helps even the temp out in the oven! However, don't forget to take it out during travel...I learned the hard way! It cracked in half during our return trip home and had to buy another one.

I have found that if the wire rack is in its lower position, I will burn food. On the upper position I do not. I too have been considering a pizza stone. I like 3'senough idea of an upside down cookie sheet. It would be cheap, and travel well.

I put a floor tile in mine, but haven't tried it yet. I just happened to have one I couldn't ever use, so I figured I'd try it. I've always read that you should put it directly on the metal flame deflector (as opposed to on the rack itself), but don't cover up the holes on each side.

Interesting idea with the sheet pan, I might try that if the tile doesn't work out.

Also for you cookie lovers out there get a 1/4 sheet aluminum cookie pan. Aluminum conducts heat better than the cheap tin ones and results is a better cookie with less burt bottoms or chips. Quite honestly it's all I use anymore for any baking sheet.

I use this and parchment on the cooler nights, hardly ever use my oven in the summer.
