Great stuff Norma!! Looks as though you are onto something I have also been doing my caputo dough leftovers on the grill after 3-4 days and they are coming out really nice . Very Happy with results. Areyou planning to try some caputo in your set up?

John,

Thanks!  Great to hear you are using your leftover Caputo doughs for the grill.  What kind of grill do you have and what is your set-up in your grill.  

If my Weber Grill gets high enough in temperatures after the build, I do want to use all Caputo.  Steve and I will start trying to make my 22" Weber grill into a pizza oven, after he is finished with his WFO.  He is really working hard to get that finished right now.

I think, but am not sure, that the steel grill did help today.  I took temperatures and pictures when the grill was heating up, without the cherry wood chips, but didnít post those pictures, because the grill wasnít on that long.  The temps when the grill was only on about 30 minutes were in the middle 500's.

Jason,

Great to hear you are using your BBQ grill more lately.  Thanks for thinking the set-up in my BBQ grill is awesome.  :) The pies should have been baked a little less, but when closing the lid, it is hard to watch what is going on.  Before I added the steel grill yesterday, and the wood chips, my firebricks didnít get as hot.  I think when I try this again, I will shoot for a little lower baking temperature on the firebricks.  I couldnít believe how fast those two pies baked.  I might try to get some little pieces of firewood, and try them to see what happens next.

Dave,

Anytime come over! I need to dial in the oven temperature though first.  I think these pies were baked a little too hot.

Steve,

Thanks! I never thought I would get my BBQ grill up that high in temperature.  I really liked to watch that flame burning.  8)

Bill,

I was getting excited when I saw the temperature climbing.  :-D You wouldn't believe how different my preferment Lehmann dough tasted, when made into a pizza.  Sure wish I could get that same taste at market.  The pie changed from a NY style to a Neapolitan style.

Norma,

Looks like your grill set-up works famously well. Beautiful pies!

Craig,

The recent set-up did work better with the steel plate, but it got too hot on the firebricks, for my tastes.  The first pizza had too much char on the bottom and I almost burnt the sides while rotating.  I will think about what to try next. Maybe a smaller size pizza to see what happens, and lower the bake temperature some.

I decided this morning since I was going to make tomato sauce today, I would give my BBQ grill another go, at trying to make a pizza.  Steve had given me some wood at market on Tuesday, to try out in the BBQ grill.   I just mixed the dough this morning with a wooden spoon, let it rest, and then kneaded it a little and let it rest again.  I used Caputo Pizzeria flour this time as the flour.  I only made the hydration 58% because I didnít want this dough sticky at all, in case the BBQ grill wouldnít work out in some way.  I only used flour, salt, ADY, and water in the formula.

The BBQ grill did get to high temperatures today and the bake was fast.  I really like seeing the flames from the pieces of wood Steve gave me.   >:D

Pictures in sequence of events as they happened, from mix, tomatoes, to finished pizza.
