    Brother Tex, I know that it’s asking a lot, but try to talk some sense into that liberal while he is out there  =)

    The dough balls weren't round. If the were, the pies would have been round.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    I assume JIC has already ordered his roccbox and kbq , so they’ll be waiting for him when he gets back.

    He will have if he has any sense. 

    It was great meeting a few new folks face to face, and was a ton of great grub.

    He was actually pretty well behaved yesterday. We got our drink on early and tapered off. He's actually a responsible adult if you can believe that!

    We are actually still getting used to slinging these off the peel. We like a little more hydration that they call for so the dough is a little sticker. Trying to walk the line between enough flour on the peel to make it slide and too much flour which I hate. They start round but when you sling them they go oblong. I tried parchment paper on my first cook at it caught on fire before the pie hit the stone. It's hot in there!

    I think we figured it out a little better as we went last night. Still learning but it's a super fun cook! I love the speed. Pies are 90 seconds. Maybe 2 min if you have a lot of toppings. You can crank out a ton of pies super fast so you aren't cooking for an hour while everyone else eats. we did 5 pies in roughly 15 minutes once we switched to gas from the wood burner.

  • These were fun. The green one is Zatar seasoned grass fed ground beef with feta, tomato, and arugula. very Mediterranean in profile. The other one was Valentina's brisket, homemade bacon, and valentina's sauce. Both really interesting and delish.

    I wonder if a wooden peel would be better for launching. That's all I've ever used. My pies never stick to mine and all I use is a little flour. Used to use a pinch of semolina, lately just a dusting of flour.

    Have you tried a bit of rice flour on the peel? I think mainly getting pizzas off the peel is just an acquired skill. I make the pies on the peel as quickly as possible. I also shake the pie on the peel a couple of times while making it to keep it loose. I don’t know if any of that matters with the metal peel you are using. I launch in the WFO with wood and retreive with metal. 
    Looks like y’all had a fine time. I wish I could have joined you for a bit.
