A walk-in-the-park cook right?  Well, it started off pretty good staying warm with an ambient of 3*F with Canadian anti-freeze in the bloodstream.  Wish I could blame this one on the alcohol.

550 dome, things looked wonderful from the dome hole.

Smelled a little burnt coming in the house.  Quick shot of the undercarriage revealed a burnt offering.

Wasn't a total loss, eating the toppings and practicing my disc golf backhand.  If it were horseshoes, I would have scored a leaner.

 

Decided to scale back with the next one.  Both the toppings and temp.

What I learned...

1.  14" pie toppings and 12" pie toppings are different...restrain from topping too heavily.

2.  A lower temp on the small may be better than a higher temp on the large.

3.  An 11" pie on a 12" stone is better than a 12" pie on a 12" stone.  

 

Thanks for letting me ramble.

Pics coming shortly, having some issues adding pics into the post?

    Operator technical difficulties?  Can someone help me post pics in the actual post and not a thumbnail?

    Tried to copy IMGs from photobucket, paste in the post.  It linked to my library?

    Copy the HTML code from photobucket and insert that in comment box...that's what I do...or used to do anyway. Now that the attach a file button works on iPad, I just use that.

    It's all good...at least the thumbnail pics are there.

    If IMG and HTML are no good, it's either Direct link or Email I guess?

    Are you inserting the thumbnails from the 'attach a file' below comment box? If so, I think when click on the pics on your post it should give you the option to insert image...that puts it bigger in the post. Then if you click on thumbnail again you can delete it (but keep big one in post). All this works on iPad so I assume its the same on pc.

    It doesn't give an option for some reason?  I've tried to put the cursor in the post, then attach, but my image is too big.  This large photo size also happens when you click on the thumbnail.

    Maybe it has to do with uploading settings on my PC?  I'm not the most technically savy.
