Thanks for all responses to my query on Pizza temps and plate setter.ANOTHER QUESTION ON WOODS: I have two small bags of Ash, and would welcome your input on what it might be good with. Many of you set me straight on my recent purchase of cherry. I've already used up all my alder when doing salmon/tuna, etc., but have not yet tried to "smoke the ash" --- Usually, ash is a bad word on this forum, eh?
Any ideas?? Thanks you huevo loco hombres!

    Big Murth,
    Haven't tried Ash, but it is suitable for smoking. Try this link for the lo-down.[p]Cheers!

    Big Murth,
    I think this fits under stevie's one liners: "I tried to burn some wood but it was ash." When you burn that stuff what do you call the residue? ash-ash?

    Wise One,
    Don't know what the residue would be called, but perhaps if one were to stick their head above the Egg when she really starts to go, a person might be accused of smoking........
    ......."Ashish"[p]Nature Boy turned me on to a 15 page link that is like an encyclopedia of woods. Says that Ash is a fast burner, light but distinctive flavor....good with fish and red meats.[p]Thanks to all for your responses!!
