Greetings, Eggers! I've had an egg for a few years now, but up to this point, I've really only used it for grilling. Now I'm expanding my horizons and getting into smoking, baking, and some other stuff on my LBGE. I'm hoping to learn from the Egg veterans here, and I've already learned quite a bit just by reading what you guys have posted.
So I started with a pizza…
After reading up on the various baking stone options, I called up CB Hardware north of Austin and picked up a BGE pizza stone for my egg. I set up the Egg with my PS legs-down, the three green ceramic feet on the PS, and the pizza stone on the feet for some air flow underneath. I lit the egg with (sadly mediocre) Stubb's charcoal, let it heat up to around 550, and held it there for about 40 minutes.
I used a whole wheat dough ball I picked up from Whole Foods, stretching it out a bit, and adding white truffle oil, salt/pepper, some organic pizza sauce, shredded basil, fresh mozzarella, and crumbled pepper pork sausage. A little parchment paper on the peel, a little cornmeal on top of that, and a pizza slid off onto my Egg for the first time.
I cooked it for about three minutes at 525 or so, pulled the parchment, rotated the pie, and cooked it for another seven or eight minutes.
Here's the result…
