A walk-in-the-park cook right?  Well, it started off pretty good staying warm with an ambient of 3*F with Canadian anti-freeze in the bloodstream.  Wish I could blame this one on the alcohol.

550 dome, things looked wonderful from the dome hole.

Smelled a little burnt coming in the house.  Quick shot of the undercarriage revealed a burnt offering.

Wasn't a total loss, eating the toppings and practicing my disc golf backhand.  If it were horseshoes, I would have scored a leaner.


Decided to scale back with the next one.  Both the toppings and temp.

What I learned...

1.  14" pie toppings and 12" pie toppings are different...restrain from topping too heavily.

2.  A lower temp on the small may be better than a higher temp on the large.

3.  An 11" pie on a 12" stone is better than a 12" pie on a 12" stone.  


Thanks for letting me ramble.

Pics coming shortly, having some issues adding pics into the post?
