Saturday Night Pizza

<p />On this pizza I used the traditional |__| firebrick position for low and slow cooks - the pizza stone sat atop the 2 firebricks that stand on edge. I also left the bottom fully open (Spin's suggestion) and regulated the heat using the top vent. The results - a longer cook at a lower temperature - about 475 degrees dome for about 18 minutes - the crust was about perfect - evenly cooked from side-to-side. Even the cheese melted evenly - all ove the sausage and pepperoni.

    That is such an unbelievable picture....and I can imagine that it tasted beyond what it looks like. That pizza would put the best pizza shop in my area to shame.
    By viewing so many pics on this forum it makes me realize more and more of how far i have to go to become even close to an Eggpsert. It's a good thing i ordered so much charwood charcoal and wood because i need alot of practice to get to these honorable levels.

    Smokin' Todd,[p]I suggest that you obtain one of the eggs available from E2K. With Cornfeds small and your large all things are possible.[p]I don't think any of us would honestly call ourselves Eggsperts. We all need to learn much more. The more we learn, the more we realize how much we need to learn. This forum provides us the means to combine our collective experiences (from upbringing, ethnicity, cooking failures, cooking successes, experiments, etc) to share ideas and thoughts. The result is a much shorter learning curve, better food, and cooking experience.[p]I invite you to become an "eggspert". The only thing you have to lose is the list of suppliers for your eats :-).[p]Spin[p][p]

    Just make sure Smokin'Todd and Cornfed pays for the egg before they try to push it across the parking lot,you know what happened last time.

    YB,[p]I remember it very well. They suffered through the problems in becoming Eggsperts in an area of EGG use that was never considered or addressed by this forum. Hopefully, they will never need to offer advice based on the experience.[p]Spin

    YB,[p]As Spin says, everything is a learning experience. I now know not to slam the BGE onto concrete. If I wanted to be a brat, I could have complained that there is no label on the BGE saying not to slam it into concrete so how was I supposed to know it would break??? Instead, I took the moral high ground and with the help of Smokin' Todd and Finger Lickin' Tom and members of the Forum repaired the BGE.[p]Incidentally, in today's world of legal hijinks, to be safe it might be good to put labels on the BGE saying "do not slam into concrete," "do not slam dome forcibly down on one's fingers," and "do not stick face into grill while searing steaks."[p]Sarcastically yours,

  • Cornfed, have you noticed that lawn mower bodys now out-last the engines. The opposite used to be true,, but now there are so many warning labels, the body is protected from the elements. And lets remember "Don't put hands or feet under mower while the engine is running". "Make sure small children and pets are not in your path while mowing". I'm certainly glad they put that one on there. Large children had better watch out. :^)

    speaking of lawn mowers... how about that incident where some jackass sued from an injury obtained while trimming his hedges with a lawn didnt say "do not use this machine for trimming hedges" a new label must be added to the arenol.

    When you say large children, might you be talkin' about.............................the Guru of Grease?[p]Dr. Chicken
