My first attempt on NY style

Well bought a pizza kettle and now I attempted to master this thing for good WFO pizza.  This 72hr rise was awesome!

Looks pretty good. And nice backyard. I'd love that much open grass.

I just put one of these together.
22.5" Weber
Tombstone stone.
top grill with steel plate and aluminum foil.
Used lump charcoal.
1st try with just charcoal not hot enough
2nd attempt charcoal w/wood chunks good
3rd attempt I cut back to one chimney of charcoal w/wood chunks not hot enough
4th try I used too much charcoal and the top cooked too fast, I wasn't expecting that.
Pizza Friday tomorrow for 5th time.

Thanks first NY try!  I've done some thick crusts on an aluminum pan, but love NY style and it seems to come out so much better with it directly on the stone.  I have burned them up too.  Lol

It's an acre and it takes a lot of up keep but it is nice to have.  One day outdoor kitchen WFO and a pool.  Dreaming though!  And GO REDSOX!  Love it up there!

I have seen it get to 1000 degrees?  I have melted some of the grill parts too!  Kings ford charcoal plus a couple pieces of hardwood.  You have to have the thermal thermometer or you will def burn it up?  Stone stays about 700 725.

It's been a challenge too.  I have burned up a lot of pies.  I figured it out I think.  I bought another rack and placed another stone up top for radiant heat.  I always fill up the chimney with kings ford charcoal, then add 3 big chunks of hardwood.  I let it get up to 1000 then come back down to around 500-700 on the kettle thermometer.  Then the stone is about 700 725. I place the pie on the stone wait about 1 min then easy the metal peel under it a start turning.  After about 3-5 min bottom usually done then I sort of dome it to get the top brown.

And GO REDSOX!  Love it up there!

It's not a redsox B, it is actually a Brooklyn Dodgers B. Common mistake. The dead give away for Brooklyn is the little triangle hole.

The first appearance of that "B" for the redsox was in 1936, however the Brooklyn dodgers first used it in 1908, almost 30 years earlier.

EDIT: sorry to take your topic a bit off. Post some more pizza pictures!
