    Thanx Big Maple - I may try the peel again and just pick up the pie when it's ready to go in the kettle and immediately transfer to the hot stone.

    RonB I have that peel too and I suggest sprinkling some corn meal on it before picking up the pizza. Works every time for me.

    I used a hover grill for the same purpose. Works well. Much more stable than the 2 half bricks I tried before that. Geez, I'm in Lowes so much you'd think I'd remember to buy another brick,or 2.

    jgjeske1 - I tried placing the steel on top of the hovergrill and it worked, so next time I'll give it a try. Thanx.

    In the indoor oven. I used a pair of oven mitts plus a pair of silicon trivets to move the steel. The steel heats very quickly - almost keeping pace with the oven as it heats.
    I will use the hovergrill next time - I think that will be high enough.

    And thanx.

    I read that dough recipe after you posted it and found it so far outside the box of MOST pizza dough recipes that I decided to mix some up.👍 It's a winner. I like how he added lots of sugar, more to help it brown at low temp cooking and the relatively high fat content, olive oil, was interesting. Plus the hydration percentage is higher than most pizza dough recipes.

    Nice cook. If you want to raise the pizza even higher, use a few bricks under the steel. I'm curious, did you preheat the steel in our oven or in your kettle?

    I love Kenji's dough recipe. Use it all the time and folks around here go bat shit crazy for the stuff.

    Another thought - I may try it with some parchment under the pie.

    Thanx Meathead. The problem was that I slid the 'za too far in, and it came in contact with the hot coals. It stuck to the grate and I had a hard time unsticking it without damaging the pie.

  • RonB

    Thanx, but I have that peel. I've never been overjoyed with it and seldom use it. Once I put dough on it, I must put it in the oven right away or it will dampen the cloth and make it hard to slide.

    This was Kenji's recipe for dough:

    http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2...zza-dough.html

    I made it in the processor, but then I did some stretch and folds so I could get a feel for the dough.

    The rest of the beer was in the fridge. I do drink wine, but not with pizza.

    Picture perfect pizza to me! Got to love those pepperoni "cups" !
    Wood fired pizza place by us says "Blisters and char is our oven’s way of saying I love you."

    You might try a metal or brick deflector above the water trough to protect the back edge of the pie and send more heat upward. But rotating the pie should help.

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

Placeholder

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

Placeholder

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

Placeholder

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

Placeholder

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?

Placeholder

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. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

Our Favorite Backyard 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.

This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

Placeholder

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.
