We hope everyone’s enjoying the first few days of summer. For us, the weather heating up means one thing - the EGG’s gonna be busy! Whether you’re making stuffed burgers
for a backyard grill out, some brats
before a baseball game or searing a steak
for dinner on the patio, we hope you’re doing it with full flavor and having fun all the while!

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............
