    Don't know about "on the BGE"; that seems almost too specific. You might try a google search on bread baking plus wood fired.[p]Sorry I can't be more help.[p]Ken

    <p />hiloboy,
    this book is the best place to start. pretty much the same setup for pizza will work, some setups may require a water pan for steam, for 3 dollars for a used book you cannot go wrong. this one is a pain ordinaire careme (boule), and the other is a beehive. both these were first attempts from the book [p]054cb85d.jpg[p]3ecd831d.jpg[p]100_1156.jpg[p]100_1153.jpg

    hiloboy,[p]I just started baking sourdough bread on the BGE a month or so ago. I use a platesetter, legs up, to support the grill. My pizza stone then goes on the grill. Otherwise, the platesetter (or pizza stone) gets too hot by having direct exposure to the coals. Could use fewer coals I guess, but that seems to work fine. I am very happy with both pan baked bread and rounds that I place on the stone. I have used parchment paper and corn meal under the dough and both work well. Basically, the temps and recipes are the same as if I am using my oven. Be sure to get the stones to temperature (may take an hour or more)before putting the dough on. I will admit that I have not yet got the big holes inside the bread I want, otherwise the texture and taste is excellent. Only had one batch that I fed the birds with and that was because I used a bleached soft wheat that made a hard flat cracker-like bread. As mentioned on a previous post, buy a basic book and study a bit. I havn't posted any pictures because I simply cannot compete with most of the cooks posted here. My son says I get a "A" on my cooking for taste and a "C" for presentation (the "C" is generous at times). Good cooking.
