    Those pies look fantastic. I love making pizza from scratch. Especially utilizing the Kettle Pizza accessory for my kettle. Having said that, I've gotta say, the Chef Boy-R-Dee pizza kit makes for a very flavorful pie. It does not compare with homemade, but it's pretty easy to make and it tastes pretty dang good.

    Lazy no more: Diving back into pizza

    I've been in a lazy pizza rut where I've been buying the dough from the supermarket. It's pretty good dough and the pizzas are good but I'm not learning anything. So I borrowed my Elements of Pizza book back from my neighbors and made some New York Pizza dough a couple days ago with my girlfriend and tonight I made the pizzas.

    I used my Blackstone Pizza Oven which was at about 1000f for the preheat then I turned down the heat considerably. The crust came out well.

    The book is written for home ovens. Previously I've adjusted the hydration for another dough recipe but I didn't this time for the new york dough. Maybe I'll try that in the future.

    Next up will be a dough made with a biga (flour, water, and a pinch if yeast fermentated overnight). I may go back to my old sauce because I liked it better than the NY sauce which had sugar, olive oil, and oregano in it.

    I'm glad to be back in the saddle.

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

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.
