It’s almost Halloween and if you’re cooking on your EGG, you may end up with more people knocking on your door asking for pork chops than candy! In case you’re willing to share and want to please a crowd, we recommend warm Margherita Pizza, FGL’s Lemon Pepper Wings or our favorite, S’mores in a Cone!

If you missed the 17th Annual EGGtoberfest here are the highlights Click Here Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

My first LBGE pizza

For my first attempt at this I decided to go with what I know best.  That was using this perforated pizza pan which I have baked numerous pizzas with in my kitchen oven. My setup was...Indirect, legs up, grate, pizza pan, 500 F, 25 minutes.  Homemade dough, sauce from fresh garden tomatoes, toppings..."the works" including lots of salted anchovies and pork sausage.  The crust was crisper than from the kitchen oven. Almost too crisp and overly browned. Editable but very brown. I will probably do a legs down pizza the same way before I start to work with the pizza stones.

Question: What is the best way to shut down the oven heat, without burning up all of the lump, after a cook such as this?

Your input is appreciated.  Thank you in advance!
