I have been thinking about using my weber kettle to get that char & smoke taste to the crust. How many of you have tried this? How well does it actually work? I hear some people say that their crust ends up getting burned before their pizza is done and others say it works good. How hot does your weber kettle usually get? Is this worth a try or should i just stick with my oven? Also i have a weber gas grill (gensis b) which gets to about 650-700 easily. I was thinking if the weber kettle wasn't possible maybe i could use the gaser.
Since i have never seen wood/coal fired oven and only seen them on life food network and the such. It seems like the heat in these ovens comes from the top rather than the bottom. Is this why they are able to get the pizzas perfect and it doesn't burn the crust. Any help would be appreciated.
