Day 2 with the new Egg

Well the 1st firing I made hamburgers so for fun day Sunday, it's Fat Mike's pizza, the 1st attempt. Used the set up with the egg feet and a stone.. the pizza turned out great minus some edge burning from hanging over the stone, overall great flavor, you all were right. I am still amazed how you can hold the temperature, and make small adjustments when needed..This thing is great. Couple of pics of my 1st go around

    That looks great! Nice job.

    I did some pies on my medium Saturday, and the pizza stone was larger than the med placesetter so it got too hot and I burned to bottom of the first pie before the top was done. I had to finish the other pies under the broiler.

    Yours looks perfect.

    Used High Gluten flour for the dough and added some granulated garlic and some Italian seasoning..great flavor.

    Nice looking pie.
    You use to have to take a slow boat to Italy, or a troop train to Chicago to get a pizza that looked that good.
    Except now they must still have a meat, cheese, and flour shortage over there.
    Wars over folks.
    Toppings are an option.
    Burnt crust.
    Burnt crust with sauce.
    Burnt crust with sauce, and burnt red onion.
    Burnt crust with sauce, burnt red onion, and burnt asparagus.
    Yada yada yada.
    Thats not pizza.
    You can almost see through them.
    Up here in Canada we have these trendy pizza places that advertise pizza cooked over a wood fire at 1000 degrees, Big wup ( I use 450 to 500 ).
    Now you can do it your way on the BGE at home, with the family, save yourself enough over a year to buy your next egg.
    What a world we live in Eh, now less is more.
    Well, not at my house.
    Keep the pics coming, as we men are a visual bunch.
    The women on the other hand react better to the soft spoken word, or so I'm told.
    Sort of like looking at those beautiful bare breasted women of colour in National Geographic when I was a kid out in the back 40.
    I never did read any of those articles come to think of it.

    Hmmm....react better to the soft spoken word....this is the BGE afterall...a 'MANS' world. ;) Women have no place here and nothing to contribute....obviously.... unless they are in full color in National Geographic. :angry: Might want to be a bit more diplomatic in the future Raebo....The women on this site will cook you under the table. B) Maybe in Canada they are still supposed to be bare foot and pregnant? :whistle:

    Gee did you read all that into my post.
    Wow I might have to get looked at
    It could be I have some deep latent pent up mother issues I don't yet know about.
    Thanks I'll look into that.

    Women around the world have great senses of humour and for the most part can take it just as well as they can hand it out, as long as we keep it clean and respectful right?
    I'll remember to keep my posts to the point though.

    Great job!! I had my Egg 2 years before I tryed a pizza and yours looks better than mine did. One bit of advice. I cheat and use parchment paper trimmed to the dough size. The back of the Egg will always be hotter than the fount and that is where it will burn. Since you are cooking at high temps anyway the Egg will recover almost instantly so I rotate my pizza about every 1 1/2 min while cooking to keep from burning the crust.
