I never considered that but maybe I should have. I cooked at around 250f and just assumed that since they are pizza trays they could stand up to that.

They can definitely stand 250f, but I doubt they'd be very safe at 250c or the 350c often reached for kamado pizza.

Oops sorry, I meant 250c. :oops:

Looking it up on Google, it seems that there's a bit of debate on this and on source says it's ok up to 260c. My tray wouldn't have got up to that in the short time it was in the oven.

Oh ok, at 250c it might depend on the quality of the specific item.
Check out this from wikipedia: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polytetrafluoroethylene)
"Safety:
The pyrolysis of PTFE is detectable at 200 °C (392 °F), and it evolves several fluorocarbon gases and a sublimate. An animal study conducted in 1955 concluded that it is unlikely that these products would be generated in amounts significant to health at temperatures below 250 °C (482 °F).[28]
While PTFE is stable and nontoxic at lower temperatures, it begins to deteriorate after the temperature of cookware reaches about 260 °C (500 °F), and decomposes above 350 °C (662 °F).[citation needed] These degradation by-products can be lethal to birds,[29] and can cause flu-like symptoms[30] in humans."

I place the deflector on the grill rack which is on the riser, then i put the pizza stone on top of deflector stone. ( as shown by urbangriller somewhere). Heat it all up together for quite a while and never have a problem. No burnt base and good top.
Cook directly on stone--no tray needed.
