  • Re: What's your pizza setup?

    Plate Setter legs down, pizza stone on top of three 3/4 inch copper plumbing elbows. Temp 550 * F.

    Everything heated for 40 minutes or more.

    Use parchment paper,easier to get off pizza peel ( still use some cornmeal, for taste, under the pizza.)

    Lightly browned edges and melted cheese - - Done.
  • Re: Need desperate help lighting the egg

    I use 91% alcohol but in a chimney with a couple of pages from the newspaper. I pour the 91% from the top and wait about 15 to 20 seconds before hitting it with a lighter. The chimney is sitting on the lump in the BGE.  I then wait for the top lump in the chimney to turn white, that' s around 10 minutes and pour the hot coals on the other lump, I use the ash tool to turn the chimney upside down.
