It’s that time of year again-time to hop on out to your backyard for an EGG hunt. If you’re lucky, you’ll only have to search as far as your patio! Planning on cooking Easter Sunday? Check out our Easter Menu. If you’re looking for a sweet treat to enjoy with the whole family, try at least one of our sweet treats, if not both: Grilled Peeps & Carrot Cupcakes. Lastly, if you’re having company, our Pinterest page has lots of ideas for entertaining. We hope you have an EGGstra tasty holiday!

  • Re: Please Fix Burned Pizza Bottoms

    I cook successfully at 700, with 1 1/4" copper couplings providing space between the plate setter and the stone. I never really toasted my original gasket, but it was getting brittle, so I installed one of the new Nomex(R)gaskets.

    IMHO, if you want to cook that hot, you need to use a homemade dough with 60-65% hydration.

    I am going to go back to 600-650 next time, just because it works and it is easier not to overcook the pizza.

    Here was my last effort
