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!

Need advice

Good morning all, I'm new to egging and it may sound like a stupid question but need some advice. Tonight I want to make a chicken bacon ranch pizza. The wife tells me I should precook chicken and bacon and I say no to precook. The question is, is it better if I precook the chicken and bacon before putting on pizza or not? Any and all advice is appreciated and thanks in advance. Just one more thing I could use help with is how do I add photos on here? I use an iPad to search/post here and would like to know if there is an easy way. I would like to share with you all after pizza is done.

    I would pre-cook the bacon and chicken.  The pizza will only take around 5-10 mins, and that is not enough time for your meet to cook.

  • Pre-cook. Tried it without pre-cooking once . . . Only once . . .

    Did a buffalo chicken pizza this weekend. Tried a whole wheat crust from Whole Foids. Definitely pre-cook.

    " wife tells me I should precook chicken and bacon"  Just how long have you been married =))

    As always: she is correct......

    The "correct" part has not changed in the 44 years I have been married, bet yours will be the same.

    Your answer to SWMBO is "After extensive consultation with the esteemed members of the BGE forum, it has been suggested that pre-cooking chicken and bacon, although not necessary in all recipes, will improve both the taste and texture of pizza".

    See - you both are right (Canadians - masters of compromise)

  • Ha! I did not need her to show me how to do pics. I just did not scroll down far enough. Key board was covering attach file link. It's not the best but better then take out and it was my first from scratch. Dough and all. Thank you all for responding.
