I'm not jewish but I have a new sister in law who is so i'm trying to learn the rules of kosher cooking.
I have a question about cooking matza, is it ok to put a stone tile on a barbaque and cook them on that or do I have to use an oven with tiles inside to bake it on?

Also why is there an 18 minute rule?

The method of heat is not important. The cleanliness of the heat source is what's important. I've seen it done with a pizza oven that was never used for non-kosher cooking.

The 18 minute rule comes from the time that it takes for flour to begin to rise naturally on it's own. It's unleavened bread and therefore it has to be in the oven before it begins to rise. That is 18 minutes.

btw I admire your ambitions, but the commercial brands work just fine and you can use your time to cook some really fantastic other foods.

This is from Long Island NY, but the Chabad in the Chicago northern suburbs does the same thing. Note the pizza oven and the discussion of the 18 minutes. I have pictures of my kids in 1989 making matzah at the North Suburban Chabad. I was in the flour booth.
