  1. Which model do you have?
  2. That looks awesome Have you ever tried adding just a pinch of freshly ground cumin to that?
  3. I am a huge fan of the Miyabi stuff. Several years ago I bought a Kaizen II chef and i loved it. It was my go-to. I managed to drop it and ruin it by taking a bit chunk out of the blade. After crying about that for a while I decided to replace it with one of the nicer Miyabis and I have never looked back.
  4. I got the opportunity today to try the Urban Slicer Pizza Worx Neapolitan pizza dough mix for the first time. This mix is a 'just-add-water' pizza dough mix that couldn't be any easier to make. All you have to do is dump the mix into the bowl of your mixer and then add a cup of water. Let it knead with the dough hook for 8 to 10 minutes and it's ready to rise. I mixed mine in the Kitchenaid and then divided it into two pieces, put them in oiled plastic containers, and let them rise for about 2 hours until they doubled in size. Then I just transferred them to my work mat and shaped them in
  5. Yes. you can cook them without wrapping. You just have to pay attention to the tenderness near the end to make sure they are done
  6. Homemade pizza sauce is quick and easy, especially for this fresh sauce for a Neapolitan style pizza. This fresh sauce just basically requires putting the ingredients in a blender and pulsing it a few times. This sauce can also be made into a traditional cooked sauce very easily as well. Here are the ingredients: 1 28oz can whole peeled tomatoes 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 1/2 tsp kosher salt 1/2 tsp sugar 1 clove garlic, minced 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes 1/4 tsp dried oregano 1/4 tsp dried basil Put the tomatoes plus about half of the liquid in the can into t
  7. The recent software version upgrade here has created a performance issue that I can't figure out. I host this system myself through my hosting service instead of paying the stupid high fees that the software company charges to do the hosting. Until I can find someone I know and trust who is a database administrator who understands the questions the tech support people are asking me, we are just going to have to deal with it. I am not going to increase my out of pocket expenses any further here. I am also going to research moving this system back to a 'free' software platform if I can find
  8. You will not be able to use the expander grate with the add-on sloroller.
  9. On the cooks where you need expansion of cooking space, just use the heat deflectors where you can have all the cooking space you want.
  10. These themes are hard to put together and I haven't had the chance to check out every possible application of it. If you find something that isn't working adequately, let me knmow and I'll see if I can tweak it out...
  11. I think you should send yours back. Amazon gave you a discount because of the problem. Kamado Joe said they were gonna help you out with the cart even after Amazon had given you this discount. Now it's not happening fast enough. You need to buy locally from some dealer who can help you. I'm sure there is a big green egg or a primo dealer in a brick and mortar that you can deal with face to face and not have these issues.
  12. I created a new theme you can try called KG 2020... let me know what you think about it.... The editor doesn't look too good in this new revision but I can play with that some more later....

    There are some workarounds that most people try by removing the lower vent slider without taking those screws out. I caution you if you try it to wear gloves to keep you from cutting yourself withthe sharp edges of the metal parts.
  14. My speculation on some hatched idea like that would be rather worthless.
  15. Sorry about the change... the most recent software update crashed my custom theme and I absolutely HATE the theme editor that comes with this package. It's a nightmare to use. They now have canned themes that they would like for me to BUY. You pay an up front fee and then an continued fee every six months to keep using the theme so it just ain't gonna happen here.
  16. The actual recipe was behind his pay wall so I couldn't actually see it. He gave enough of it up in the short video that I was able to make it work. I actually don't LIKE the way he made it that well. I can improve it by either shortening the rise even further or using less yeast.....
  17. I caught a short video from Christopher Kimball on Milk Street last week where he made a pizza from a focaccia style dough that looked amazing. I decided to give it a try right here for the first time and the results were really great. Focaccia is an Italian flat bread that is made from a really wet dough. It's much wetter than anything you would normally try for pizza because it's impossible to shape. Well, as you can see in this video, we just let the dough shape itself basically with a little help pushing it to the edge of the pan. This dough, being as wet as it is (85% hydrat
  18. Now I know why its 22". Thst sloroller will fit on a weber kettle. That might be a smart marketing move...
  19. I can't make myself view this as a kettle grill. It's a lightweight metal kamado grill. I can't even begin to compare it to any kettle grill I have ever seen. Is the fact that its 22" and metal the only thing that makes this like a weber? It's differnent in every other aspect.
  20. @Buttburner did it ask you to upload your proof of purchase? If not, do NOT lose that. They will require it for a warranty claim.
  21. "Worth more" is just as subjective as "Cheap Stuff." It's hard to convince a weber die hard that there is anything out there that is 'worth more' than the $100 kettle grill. "Worth" is more commonly defined by how much expendable income one has.. lol
  22. Kamado Joe has never been a competitor to the cheap stuff in the market and they never will be. There will ALWAYS be a cheaper option that Kamado Joe. They are marketing to a higher price point client base.
  23. It definitely might help with bark formation.
