Not sure who first coined the phrase 'Egging While Intoxicated' - Saw it recently from @Fred19Flintstone and a while ago from @IrishDevl.  Got to experience it first hand tonight.  It was over 90 degrees again today, so the Moscow Mules started early.  Pizza planned for dinner so we didn't need to cook inside.  Plan was for 2 pies - sausage in the CI Pizza pan, and a plain cheese to eat during the week, done on the stone.  The CI one turned out fantastic.  

While it was cooking, went to prep number 2. Realized that the dough had proofed too a much larger size than needed, and decided to cut it to match the size of the stone.  Placed the round pizza stone on top of the dough, forgetting I had removed the plastic wrap.  Long story short, the dough stuck to the stone, creating a big sticky mess, and ruining the dough.  Not in the mood to try rolling it out again and starting over, so just one pie tonight.  No pics of the mess, as the first pie was done and needed to come off the Egg before I ruined 2 pies.  

Still had a good dinner, and will have to whip up a dough for mid week to use up all the other toppings.
Egg was over 120 degrees before being lit.  Could have probably done a low and slow with just a few pieces of lump.  
It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.
