First cook on my egg. I was lacking time but couldn't wait any longer so I decided to do a "take and bake" pizza. I'm looking forward to all I can do with my egg and I love reading the forum and seeing the creativity and expertise of all you eggheads.

Virgin Egg

First load of Red Oak

Finished product... A little overcooked but I like a crispy crust

    Very nicely done! I hope I can do as well. I'm putting my large BGE together tomorrow. With any luck I'll get at least one cook in this weekend.

    Congrats and welcome to the cult, I mean welcome to the forum of people who love their eggs. Love their eggs so much when there is a divorce they are mentioned as part of the divorce settlement. :cheer: :whistle:

    If that's your first cook, I am way impressed. most first pizzas get slid all over the place.

    Props dude.

    That pizza looks purrfect for me!!! Welcome!!! Looking forward to seeing many more cooks from you.... :)
  • I need to try some of those ready to cook on the egg. My son and i make our own. He loves them . Usually just cheese for him. For me, I add what ever is left over in the fridge....
  • Nice pie

  • Pizza looks great!! I had my Egg 1 week and had to to go work,can't wait to get back cook a pizza, I think that is the only thing I was not able to cook.
  • Fun isn't it! I find any excuse to cook now, rather than seeing it as a chore.
  • That looks like it was done to a turn. Nice job!!

  • Seems like a long time ago when my lge BGE was that clean on the inside. That was a nice safe cook. Get on out there and cook up a storm so we can enjoy your expertise and you can enjoy some good food. ;)

    Wow~!!!! Nice job! I didn't try pizza on my egg until I was cooking on for about 6 months. And it came off looking more like a football than a pie. Good stuff :)

    Yes.  I own a blue egg!  Call Atlanta if you don't believe me!
    [I put this here so everyone knows when I put pictures up with a blue egg in it]
