My BBQ set up...pics
« on: June 20, 2010, 12:12:29 AM »
Since it's getting warmer, I didn't want to heat the house up with my oven at 500 for an hour so I tried the BBQ route.

As you can see my peel skills could use some work!

Nice save.  :-D  What's burning off to the side?  Wood chunks?   More importantly, how did the pizza taste?

Tasted good...my wife even commented on the smoky flavor. Yes...wood chips burning on the side.

I did heat up the roof for 30 minutes before I added the floor.

So you did the ceiling preheat? Nice.

Do you have an IR thermometer? I'd love to know what temps you got on the ceiling and hearth.

Looks like you created a new style; half stone baked & half grilled ;)
Only kidding man, way to go; it happens to the best of us.  I'm pretty good with the peel & I occasionally mess one up.  The only problem is that it's not that easy to save when you're baking at 900+ degrees.  Keep it up!

Actually it's a combination of three approaches- grilled, stone baked and vertical/tandoor oven/chapati style :) You can actually see the puffing on the dough on the vertical riser.  It sort of complicates toppings a bit (nothing that can drip), but this could be the beginning of three dimensional pizza :)

It's very Dali-esque.

I was going to astop by Harbor Freight and pick up an IR thermometer but ran out of time, so next time I will post temps.  As far as my grill-baked pizza I didn't have a peel so I used a cutting board.  I'll have you all know I didn't mess up the 2nd pie.

Were you able to close the lid or did you cook with the lid open?

dmichael72,

Nice job on your BBQ grill. Your pizzas looks delicious! :) I like the idea of the fire on the side of the grill. What kind of flour and formula did you sue?  Do you mind telling me what is under the top firebricks for support.  I was working on my BBQ grill last year and need to make some more modifications for this year.

The side supports are firebricks, but  used 1/4 in angle iron to hold the roof bricks in place.

Here is what I used...I think.  It is one of these two.

365 g KASL flour
230 g water
7 g salt
7 g olive oil
7 g sugar
1 tsp IDY (SAF)

makes 2 dough balls

overnight fermentation in the chill chest.

or

279 g KASL
166 g h2o
5 g oil
4 g salt
20 g sugar
4 g IDY

same overnight.

Pretty sure it was recipe one.

Hey Michael,
Any news on your bbq setup ? Seemed promising... What temp did you achieve at bottom and ceiling ?
Keep us posted...
Cheers,
