Everyone talks about how good pizza's are on the egg, but I've always been a tombstone pizza guy. I guess I'm gonna have look up some recipes. I've done a couple cooks and I'm really impressed with the ability to hold temps.

I think you need to figure out an easy way to do hand tossed crust.

No pizza but RIBS. Early start because it's gonna be another scorcher outside!! Anyways ribbs were trimmed and coated with BigRons HOH rub and went on the EGG at 9:30 A.M. Planning on a 3-2-1 cook, hopefully they turn out better than my previous ribs since they never seem to impress me. More pics to follow and please chime in with advice.46374638

Nice! I've been thinkin' about getting one of the Cargriller Kamados. About half the price of the ceramics.

shouda bought a primos , .more cooking space on a primos .eggs are good to .but not a lot of cooking surface .

good choice anyhow ,loll

just make sure you season it good with chicken @ 450 degree .let the grease splatter real good on the ceramic ,they say its already seasoned ,but it aint .the food won't taste till the inside gets black .

Again I got wrapped up in cooking that I forgot to take pictures that I can post here (I can never get pictures I do on facebook to post anywhere else) https://www.facebook.com/rene.bauer.3975 If your interested. I wasn't happy with the ribs, I foiled them for 2 hours after smoking for 3 hours and when I took them out of the foil they were already falling apart, Way over cooked. The taste was good and the wife liked them alot. Oh well MORE practice needed:msn-wink: I picked up 2 beef english roasts, ideas on smoking those?

When you foil, don't close the foil up tight. Just put the ribs meat side down, pull the foil up tight against the meat then crimp it around the ends of the bones so that ti will stay in place. Leave the middle of the foil open.
