  • Re: Eggccessories

    I won't be long now until another egg is in your sights. As far as the rib rack, the only thing I can think of to make the BGE one better is make it out of stainless steel.

    Bay state Milling has introduced a new American milled OO flour named "Contadino"

    You can read about it at:

    If you contact the Company they will tell you where you can purchase locally.
    I will have to check them out, thanks.

    00 flour might not make a revolutionary difference to your dough, I tried it and it was a little different not sure it was better certainly not worth the difference in cost.  I use a high protein bread flour for my normal crust and am pleased with the results.

    Everyone said this was my best yet. I may try the same dough with some good bread flour just to guage the difference. It was by far the easiest to work with, nice and thin and my pies were round for the first time.

    I bought 22 pounds (10 kg) from amazon for $34 plus $10 shipping.  Or something like that.  Search Tipo 00 Caputo.  Funny thing was, it was stuffed into a "if it fits, it ships" box that probably cost $4.  Perfect shape though.
    Which one did you buy? I read a couple of bad reviews which lead me to Tasty Licks. I have dealt with them before and always got treated well. I may just have to buy a 20+ lbs bag. I guess I could freeze it.
  • "00" flour

    Does anyone here have a good source for "00" Caputo flour? I made some pizza dough last weekend using some from Tasty Licks BBQ and it was by far the best dough I ever made. The problem is it was something like $18 for 5 lbs by the time shipping was added. Does Trader Joe's or Wegmans carry it? How about Restaurant Supply? I did find a place that will ship it for $2 a pound but I need to buy at least 20lbs. Anyone up for a group buy?
