I cooked two braids Friday and both burned on the bottom. One was the meat and cheese the other was the apple one made with puff pastry. I used the plate setter, stone, screen, and parchment paper. The temp was about 350 when I opened the egg to put everything in it. The tops were not completely browned, so I don't think I overcooked them. What do you think I'm doing wrong? That was the second attempt with the puff pastry and the other one turned out that way too!

    Good morning Ryan, I am not sure... 350 should not burn it and with the puff pastry to get the good puff on it it needs to be a little higher even.... have you calibrated your temp gauge? maybe you are running hotter than you think. maybe some one else will chime in on this. but check your temp gauge and let me know about that. it sounds like you have a good indirect set up with the plate setter legs up then the grill and then the stone and with the screen you have almost no contact there so it should not be burning :S
  • I will try the calibration and the set-up you mentioned. I've done platesetter legs down then stone, screen, parchment. I'm not getting any puff at all but I may try again this weekend. I'll let you know. Thanks so much!!!
