Flat bread

edited 3:52PM in EggHead Forum
Fired up the Baker Egg for bread. I use a second firering and other modifications to help with baking. Side benefit, my gasket is original on this 2 year old egg an it's still in great shape after many cooks and breads.



Ok, clay oven has slowly heated up and I'll run at 600 degrees dome for about 45 minutes before the first round goes in.

Flat bread is fun to bake and is really good eatin.
Interesting how it puffs up. I like it still hot from the clay oven, I bring the butter dish out and I eat standing by the egg the first two breads.

    Are those regular fireplace bricks? How long does the bread cook? Thanks for posting.

    interesting idea using a second fire ring! is that the same size fire ring as what's in there? or slightly smaller? (e.g. a large inside a large, or something like a small or medium inside a large?)

    The second fire ring is an amazing tip, you rock! Now I have to get one for my wife's Egg which is primarily our baker.

    Mine does all the smoking. Thanks for the wonderful tip!

    The fire bricks are called half bricks, approx 1 1/4" in thickness. Bread takes about 5 to 6 minutes to bake. Was a lot of fun to see the bread puff up.

    Same size. I put it in upside down right on top of the original fire ring.

    I've been baking like this for years. Also have a second fire ring for my "Smoker Egg" as well. ( great for cookin chicken at 450 dome ) Check this out...

    That's right, the mini egg! Makes a great raised grid system.
