    Meathead I attended last night's happy hour and of course it was Awesome (My internet connection was acting up... Frustrating.) As you may know, I'm a life long, Oak Parker, Berwynite, a 6 year stint in the City proper and for the past 20 years a Forest Parker.
    I have one issue that I have been wrestling with for many years. You know as well as I do that probably 90% of all Pizzeria pizzas eaten in the Whole of the Whole Chicago area are thin crust tavern (square) cut.

    The media and even our Beloved Amazing Ribs recognizes only Deep Dish as Chicago style pizza. I have been trying to dispel this myth for a long time. It ignores 90% of what everybody is eating. Anyway I have been studying, eating and making different styles of pizzas since I was 10. I'm curious if you have any thoughts on this subject.

    Great Happy Hour last night!!

    Brunetties on 31st used to be my favorite Pizza of all time.

      Lou Malnatis also makes an excellent thin crust pizza too.
      I prefer the thin crust and have them cook it a little longer for a good crunch

        Thanks Huskee
        I found the right spot to post thanks to your help I just would like everyone to know what a big help you guys and gals are if they listen and follow the steps and adapt from there every one has different tastes but you have to start somewhere

        Hi guys I watched and listened along with learning for the two hours Thank you all.
        But I digress -- I have made two fantastic pizzas since listening to the Pizza Zoom.I tried and succeeded with a few tips I learned.
        1. Even tough I roast my ingredients I did what was suggested and put the cheese on after sauce with all extras on top (bacon, Italian sausage, roasted garlic, sauteed onions, mushrooms, Greek olives, I also use 4 kinds of cheese
        2. I put bricks under my stone to raise it 1.5" And the out come both times was great the crust was NOT burned but crispy and the toppings were done to perfection.
        Unfortunately I ate it before picture sorry
        I DO thank you all for the great production with excellent tips and information and I look forward to the next one on Fish

          This was a great happy hour. I learned so much. I will revisit this happy hour often. I have tried making pizza on the grill many times. I have tried it on my Weber kettle using the kettle-pizza Pro. I’ve tried it in the pellet grill on pizza stones.The biggest problem has always been getting the pizza from the peel into the “oven” and on to the stone. The advice on the shimmy-shake with the peel and using corn meal was priceless.

          So I had added the pizza oven attachment to my Windwood 36, sidekick. This is my first attempt. The dough recipe provided by Camp Chef was pretty good. It made excellent Focaccia bread. I would prefer a NY style crust rather than the Artisan styled crust. I had trouble getting the oven temperature correct. This little oven can get 900-1000 degrees pretty quickly according to my laser thermometer. I’ll be running this play til I get it right.

            I just got done watching the Pizza Happy Hour and it was wonderful and left me wanting more. Time flew by and the knowledge coming out of episode was as rich as some of sauces discussed. The format, interaction, references, and visuals were like ordering a Pizza Happy Hour with everything on it. If you haven’t had an opportunity to watch the Pizza Happy Hour make the effort you will not be able to (pizza) peel yourself away. Thank you to all involved.

                Not sure if you've considered this already guys, but if you are on Zoom, they do provide an version of the call with a transcript in your email shortly after the call. But captioned YouTube also works.

              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!
