My wife surprised me with a Blackstone for Father's Day.  This is my second attempt.  I'm loving this thing so far!

This is my second attempt.

Nice! You are either a natural or you really learned a lot on the first attempt.  ;D

Thanks! It's your recipe and process on this forum that I've been trying to follow. I did a 48 hr cold rise (24 hrs bulk, 24 hrs balled) in a cooler with a frozen water bottle inside.

Here's the recipe I used:

Schweeet!  Nice job.

The Blackstone is an amazing oven at that price point!

Try a steak next!  Seriously... 3-4 minutes to crusty medium-rare perfection!

Indeed that is a nice pie, especially for the second try.  My advice is don't look at any of Craig's pictures as it will drive you nuts trying to recreate the artwork. ;D

If I compare to the gauge on my BS temperature is somewhere around 260-300°C here. Baking time is around 2min. Donīt want to be the sherlockian just wondering.... on the other side I never compared the gauge on my oven with the digital unit i got so maybe itīs not quite  meaningful,ha.

I noticed the gauge on my BS was reliable from bake to bake. Don't trust the actual temperature, but if you get the needle to point to same place as last time you can trust it to be the same temperature.

I too got a new Blackstone pizza oven for Father's Day. Love it! These went in at 755 degrees and came out great. Similar recipe, 65% hydration with a starter. This is just too much fun! First one was a pesto base with a little tomato sauce dabbed on. Second one basic sauce and cheese with some sausage and pepperoni.

griddleguru.com is the Blackstone Products company site.  Other popular retailers are Cabelas, Lowes, and amazon.com.

Looks great, asagers!

Are you aiming for more of a New York style bake? If you want more of an NP-style, I reckon you could blast the heat a little more. Your bake time is over 2 minutes - should be possible to do it around the 1 minute mark.
