  • I put it in a marinade for 24 hours...garlic, onion, soy, wort, balsamic, brown sugar, pepper. It really turned out well, 4 of us took it down though.

  • WudEyeDoo, Buy some frozen bread dough, let it thaw in the fridge overnight, a couple hours before take out and let proof, press it down, let it relax a bit then roll it out on to a pizza peel dusted with corn meal. If it acts like it won't roll o…

  • Nature Boy, was so good, I thought the marinate was really good, how do you do your brisket, being you are such a fan of the hunk-o-chest? Do you soak it? Give it a rub?
  • Sparky, I am on my first pork butt on the egg also, put it on 4 hours ago and so far so good, temp got over 300 for a bit but brought it down and all is well again. I used the recipie for rub in the North Carolina recipie, with 2 parts cherry to o…

  • one feral kat, Fresh mozzarella and real Parmesan would be my two favorites, others that would be good would be smoked gouda, it does not melt well so you would want to mix it with something else to make a "blend". Monterey Jack, Provolone are goo…
  • WessB,The best cheese for pizza is without question FRESH mozzarella. It is sold in larger groceries and comes packed in water, I HIGHLY recomend trying this, it is rather bland tasting if eaten in salads, etc. but when this stuff melts something w…
