    nice looking pies.  what is your dough recipe?
    After two years of trying for the dough, changing the type of flour, yeast type, water temperature addition, the study of moisture in the air, such as yeast reacts to almost 6000 feet above sea level, we arrived to this recipe :

    It's metric and this could be good for 5 pies close to 10 inch each:

    325 ml Colorado Springs tap water
    500 gr Great Value all purpose flour
    between 4 and 7 grams Fleischmann's pizza crust yeast (it depends how much moisture you have in the air the day you prepare the dough)
    13 gr of fine sea salt
    6 gr white sugar
    15 ml EVOO

    1 step - mix all ingredients together with food processor for one minute no more. Take out kneed it with your hands and if need add a little bit more flour.
    Made a ball and put it in an oiled glass bowl, cover with a wet towel, we put it in our unlit gas oven or a worm place (not more than 90F) until it doubles in size.
    2 step - take the dough and put it inside a ziplock take off the air and rest in the fridge for 14 hours.
    3 step - take out the dough about 3 hours before cook it, make a portions and kneed each ones in a bowl. Put the bowls in a floured pan and cover with wet towel and place these bowls in a worm place again. They need to double in size again.
    4 step - enlarge the bowls, season and cook.

  • Re: question on re using charcoal

    Yes, that is normal. What I do after a few cooks is pull all the old lump out into a container. Clean out the ash, add new on the bottom and top with the old. I also add a few new on top. They seem to light better. Hope that helps you.
