We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
With problem with trying to do a pizza napolitana in an Egg is that an Egg isn't a Neapolitan wood oven. It works on fundamentally different principles and behaves in a different way. It's like making toast under your broiler vs. using a toaster. You can do it, but it requires a lot more futzing around and there's a much greater chance of error.
Look. Despite what BGE corporate says, their kamados aren't designed to operate for any length of time at 800+*. The bands start to get loose and the dome can fall out. Wood burning oven domes can get almost twice that hot with no issues. It's different technologies.
If you want a multitool of a cooker that can make a perfectly good pizza at 650F in around 10 minutes, an Egg is fine. If you want to make a VPN, you've got to have a different kind of machine.
FWIW, if I'm making 1 or 2 pies, I adjust my dough and use the Egg. 4 or more is worth firing my oven.
