We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Question: How to add steam for bread baking

Any bread bakers online?

I've finally reached the point where my dough making skills are not so awful that I'm willing to bake loaves on the Egg. My first attempt was not wonderful. The crust wast like a cracker (tasty by itself but impossible when the bread was used by the slice.) I suppose part of the problem was no steam in the Egg.

How or where can I place some water? I did the loaf on a pre-heated stone over and inverted platesetter. In a kitchen oven I would place a tin with water at the bottom, but if I try to place water on the platesetter, I will have to drop a lot of temp from the stone when I take it out to put in the water.

Will just misting the loaf and stone work?
