My First Pizza w/ My New 2stone
« on: June 05, 2008, 10:06:02 PM »
So I finally got a 2stone Pizza Oven (15 in) and even though I have to leave on business tomorrow I had to do a test bake. This was KAAP at 63% hydration  w/ a 48 hour cold proof. 6 oz of dough made about a 10" pie. My shaping techniques was a little rusty, andI may have overcooked it a touch, but it was still great. Looking forward to more baking adventures w/ my 2stone.

Congrats Jeff that looks awesome!  I am also envious of your 15"-er.  I may find a friend to give my smaller 2stone to so I can upgrade.

Too easy! :P      Anyway...

I baked it at about 760-770 for around 2 min (I didn't time it). I was a little nervous about getting the pie on the stone but it was ok, and with a couple more I'm sure it won't be an issue.

I'm thinking I might buy the 15" one in another month or so.  How long have you been preheating to get those kinds of temperatures? 

How heavy is this thing?  Can you move it indoors when it is not in use or is it too heavy/bulky?

Thanks in advance,

This was my first time using the oven, and the pre heat took 25 min or so with some wind. I've since learned I can adjust air flow on the burner to get a better flame-this may shorten the pre heat time, we'll see. I'd like to be able to get 8-900 in that amount of time.

It should be on something wheeled if you're going to move it often.

It's the Bayou Classic SQ-14 which I purchased at Home Depot last week, and don't see online right now.  ???

Does the Bayou Classic SQ-14 just sit right underneath the 2 stone?

No prob Patrick...researching right?  ;D

Being able to get the heat that the 2Stone gives did take my pizzas to another level. I can get some really good results after using it for awhile. For the $ it has been a good investment until work puts me somewhere more permanent, so I can get a WFO. If I had one issue with mine it would be the top stone heat being too low which I have heard has been fixed.


ERASMO,

I have the 15" that sits on the Bayou Burner (purchased seperately), but it doesn't look like that's available anymore.
