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!

I have used a receipe i got off the forum a couple of weeks ago , with the high gluten flour. It has turned out pretty good but not great. The crust is a little thick, and crunchy, almost over cooked, bottom, top not though. Using plate setter legs down then sometime grill sometimes not, then pizza stone. Dome starts at 500 but after a couple down to 400 or so. Platter and stone in long enough to pre heat. Times 10 15min.
bottom open, top daisy wheel on 1/2 opened.
i like a thinner softer crust. What is the purpose of the high gluten flour? Any comments on what i am missing. thanks Keith

    If you like a thinner and softer crust you need to incorporate more oil into the dough.

    Also, I would cook it a little hotter, maybe 550 or so to get more heat up high in the dome to help cook the top of the pie via radiant heat off the dome.

    The other day I did two spelt crusts that were thin and crunchy, at 550 or so(couldn't get egg hotter) and they turned out pretty good. Did 1 gf pizza, and that thing burnt in 5 minutes.

    The Spelt crusts took 5-10 minutes though.

    I know I know, premade crusts :-( . Was the safest way to get the gf crust though. Anyways try a premade spelt crust might be the texture you want.
