  • The gasket definitely helps putting out the fire.  I had an almost new  gasket lift and tear. Cheese fell off and stuck it to lid.  i put a bead of  Automotive  RTV gasket maker from the tube and placed a piece of parchment paper on that and closed …
  • I use Panko bread crumbs.  Press into the bottom of the crust and flip,  on wooden peel. Build pizza, put directly on the plate setter at 600.  After 2 and 1/2 minutes the bottom will be nice and browned.  Slide the pizza on a pan . I put an ungla…
  • I bake right on the plate setter legs down at 550-600. Large BGE. I use PANKO bread crumbs on the bottom of the dough. This adds flavor and crunch and the pizza slides right off every time. 2 -3minutes on the setter lift+slide the pizza and put…
  • I use PANKO bread crumbs and lightly press them into the dough, then flip it over.  Some use corn meal, but the PANKO crumbs actually add to the flavor and crunch. Your toppings will not fall offas the dough will slide well.
  • A favorite of ours as well. We like it with thinly sliced garlic and Kosher salt on top.Put on foil then on top of plate setter. 250 for an hour using hickory and pecan. In OKC the best Salmon is key. Only a couple of Mongers that are restaurant  …
  • I used to use corn meal. Panko Bread crumbs do a better job of blending in and crisping the bottom of the crust. They aren't noticeable.

  • My wife cubes it and makes Beef Stroganoff (sp?) I call it "Smokin"off" She puts it on the frozen egg noodles. Works with tri-tip too.
  • Check the bottom of the pizza after 2 minutes. I have to put it on a pan ( I also put a tile under the pan)after 2 minutes at 500 baking right on the setter. I use Japanese bread crumbs (Panko) and press them into the bottom of the crust. This in…
  • I use a Lodge 4 Quart with legs and flat top. It has a handy swing up wire handle. I am not sure how much heavier a pot could be put on a Large plate setter. I have started to set it on the grill with tiles under the legs. Pretty neat set up and …

  • Just adding my 2 cents to the nickel conversation. Put pecans in a ziplock and pour honey in and coat all pieces. Put them on a pizza pan and bake for 15 minutes max at 325-350 just watch and don't burn them. Put sugar in another ziploc bag and p…

  • Scott MacGyver, I like it. A couple of zip ties and it would be downright professional grade, maybe some velcro to keep it stationary?

  • I do not post much either. I looked in to see how things were going yesterday. Seemed like it was a "Fast" cooking day, so I slowed my egg down to a 25 degree cooler temp than normal, and it came in a half hour early. Everything was perfect. Jus…
