Tonight's Pies on the BGE

A tad oversauced on the Margherita (plus red onion) and we needed some dome heat to finish the top properly, but they sure tasted good.

Decent crumb on these. Missing some heat,  but dough is behaving very nicely and tastes outstanding.

One thing I never tried when I was trying to make pizza on the egg was trying to get some heat from above. I wonder, in an XL (I have a large so I don't think it would work as well) if you put a couple split firebricks on the grill (or plate setter, I don't know your setup) and then another larger stone or two on the splits if you could mimic the 2stone.

You know, that's an excellent idea.  If the kitchen (and subsequent permitting and engineering) is delayed much longer pushing my FGM build out, I might just have to go DIY and give this idea a try as an interim solution.  I did 8 pies on the BGE last Sunday night.  First 3 were fine.  By the time I hit pie #4, I'd lost so much heat on the stone, I moved from 90 second cooks to ~4 min... for number 7 & 8 I was closer to 6.  Clearly nowhere near a volume  :pizza: solution  :chef:
