    KK Pizza

    Kamados lack the top heat needed to brown the top evenly with the bottom. That’s common wisdom. Unless you own a KK. Today’s cook: a pair of South side (of Chicago) thin Crust pizzas. A perfect clone of the legendary Colucci’s in my hometown of Lansing, IL.

    Bubba doing what Bubba does.

          Actually, any kamado will do it, as long as you get the stone higher up into the dome. My Akorn makes awesome pizza. (Although it is not as cool as your KK!)
          Oh yeah, that is some awesome looking pizza!

            Why do you need to raise the pizza? To get the top closer to the reflected heat from the dome?

            What temps do you cook pizza? I'm thinking about trying my first pizza Sunday. Have a grill dome.

              Depends entirely on the dough; flour used; hydration; oil, sugar and malt content, etc. these were done at 450. My NY style dough is best at 550 on a baking steel, 650 with a stone. Follow the Baking directions for your dough recipe for the temp.

              Literally 1 mile away...and they have trivia night! . That and the 31 wineries nearby. And they deliver, even in a pandemic.

              My wife went to UVA for grad school and I loved the drive down there- once I got past DC. What pretty country, great food, and great beer!

          If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

          slow n sear
          The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          the good one grill
          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

          Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

          Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

          PK 360 grill
          The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

          kareubequ bbq smoker

          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

          NK-22-Ck Grill
          Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
