It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

    whats worked for me is getting the stone high in the dome and dropping the temps from the directions a little to compensate for the radiant heat off the dome. directions say 550, i go 500. im not a big bread baker but that seems to work for me

    Whatever the recipe indicates is a good starting point.

    Some breads cook at 300-325, some at 525-550. Depends on the ingredients, hydration level, loaf shape, etc.

    What does the recipe say?

    If it doesn't go with 400 deg and the loaf is done when the internal temp is 190deg.

    190&deg is a good mark for white bread (I prefer a little higher)....205&deg is generally better for whole grains.

    A lot depends on altitude and which one of my starters I am using. My rye starter needs 205 deg but my super sd starter loves closer to 198 deg. I have to watch that starter when making a loaf because it will sometime rise to quickly and have an impact on the oven spring. I also have a barley loaf and it does better at a higher internal temp.
