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!

Bad pizza

Picked up a Papa Murphy on the way home and fired up the LBGE.  Apparently I still had lots of "stuff" on the plate setter from Turkey Day when the pyrex baking dish I had placed the Sittin Turkey in shattered.  The pizza was overcooked and tasted like burned paper.  Well, at lease I was able to use a $2 off coupon and only paid $12.

On the bright side, the red moscotto my lovely wife put in the refrigerator last night was fabulous.

  • What temp did you "burn the paper pizza" at?

  • Got to have a sense of humor.  I don't like cooking pizza on a stone that is not clean.

    Get a pizza stone.  The place setter gets too hot to cook pizza on.  Or turn the place setter legs up and cook the pizza on the grate.

  • I cook on the paper for about 8 min then slide off on my pizza stone for another 4.  Usually nice and crispy crust.  The whole garage was FULL of smoke.  I think I should have just let it all burn off before I started.  Oh well.  I know that everyonce in a while it will not be perfection.

    Your pizza stone is a cooking surface that should never touch fat or oils.  Anything in that ceramic will leach into the crust.  Probably your earlier pizzas didn't have a problem because you didn't have a contaminated place setter.  Anyway, you can use a cookie sheet or something else - the grate.  You don't need a pizza stone unless you're going to do a lot of them.

  • There was LOTS of smoke that I should have waited to end.  Thanks Nola for the advise.  I remember reading somewhere that you should wait for the "clean smoke" smell to start cooking.  Well, I was hungry.
