If you are looking for 4 minute bakes it won't happen, in double the time maybe, yes, plus the heat up time will be considerable longer. My tiny little kitchen just became unbearable when I tried it. Also I did not find I saved propane over using a high pressure burner. I did have some success using a large area low pressure burner outside, but heat up time was considerable. I would post a link to those pics but the whole LBE link has become so awkward and unweildy and needing editing I don't have the patience to wander around in it.

Not sure if this has been covered already, but has anyone tried to setup their MBE on a gas stove top instead of the Bayou Classic? just curious if a home range would put out enough btu's to bring the MBE up to temp...

Chau, great work  :chef:
your MBE setup seems lost in-between posts. Isn't there a way that you can post the latest/best setup of your MBE, that can be accessed easily.

Thanks AgPie.  I disabled my MBE to use the burner for my LBE project.  My LBE setup is very similar to the MBE setup, which can be seen here at reply...Reply #10

The pies in my LBE thread are more current.

Just wanted to say a resounding "thank you" to everyone who contributed to this thread!  I took my mbe on her maiden voyage tonight armed with the america's test kitchen new york style dough, some fior de latte, cento san marzanos from Trader Joe's and a whole bunch of Calabrian Chiles.  6 pizzas under an hour + sub 4 minute bakes = happy guests and kids.

(btw - cost plus world market pizza stone: 0 - 2 pieces in 20 minutes)

Kaineilsen,  Your pizzas look great.  Looks like a pretty well balanced bake, which isn't always easy on the MBE/LBE.  Nice work.  Nice looking crust and crumb as well.

I agree. Really good looking. What all is on the potato pie? Did you do anything to prep the potatoes other than slicing them?

Thanks guys!  I'm still trying to get the air 'director' dialed in, but pretty happy so far.

The potato pie - red bliss potatoes sliced on a mandolin, red onion, and finely chopped rosemary all tossed in olive oil.  I rinsed the potatoes in several changes of water to get rid of some of the starch, then sprinkled about 1/2 tsp of salt and let it sit for awhile to pull out some of the water.

Hey Guys,

Just wanted your input. I'm going to be constructing my little black egg of my own but, unfortunately, the turkey burner (bayou classic sp 10) only comes with a 10psi regulator. Would that work? What would be the difference in function from say, a 20 psi vs a 10 psi?

Thanks

I am using a 10 psi with not problem. I never used a 20 psi so I can not tell you how different is cooking with one or the other..
good luck
