Fired up the Pizzaque
« on: August 19, 2019, 04:45:37 PM »
It sat on the shelf for about two years after I bought it on closeout for $25. The temperature  ran about 550 degrees with one chimney of lump. I may try another half chimney next time. What temperature do people  generally  shoot for using a Pizzaque or Kettle Pizza?

I use a Kettle Pizza.

550-600 is what works best, for the type of crust I prefer. I make my own dough and prefer a fairly thin crust.

Thanks for the information.  We've made our own dough for pizza baked in the oven, so the next outdoor  pizzas will be made with homemade dough.

If you need to get it hotter for certain types of crust I would recommend throwing some wood chunks in with your charcoal rather than using more charcoal. 400 to 500 is pretty common with charcoal but a few wood chunks with easily get you over the 600 mark.

I get into the 700's....but I put 1 unlit chimney on top of a lit chimney and then let the temp come up....gets raging hot and the high heat lasts a long time.  last pizza night we did, we fired up 13 pizzas in an hour. 
I like my Kettles like my coffee....strong and black.
