Just when you thought it was safe to light your new egg.......Yaaaa!!![p]Just got my egg last week and thought I would start with something easy......like PIZZA.........I threw out the book like every one told me to. :>)[p]I really thought I was doing things right...all the way up to the point where I slid it off the pizza stone and it kinda like...............stuck....:([p]I set the egg up with a full (eggscuse my lack of egg lingo)plate of lump. I then set 2 1" fire bricks on the grate for indirest cooking and set 2 more like this [__] which I thought would be fine. Set he (brand new) pizza stone on top. Brought the temp to 500/550 and cooked for 10 minutes then capped it off and let it stand for another 5. Top looked perfect. Bubbly (sp) getting brown and I thought "this ain't so hard" False newbie............
