My oh my those look amazing! Looks like you're able to achieve that with just briquettes?

Nice!

1. How much charcoal are you using?
2. How hot?
3.  What are you using for crust?

JEBIV, Firemunkee, jmike314 Thank you

I used a layer of ceramic briquettes, 1.25 large Weber chimney starter and 3 small wood chunks with no smoking issues with lid fully closed.

My dough: All pupose flour,  63% hydration, 2.5%salt, 2% sugar, 2% EVOO

Not sure how hot it was, the first 2 pizzas cooked in less than 2 minutes, the last one was over 3 minutes, it took a while for that cheese to melt, I should of tore it up first.

I am impressed, the pies look delicious!
What modifications we're done? What does the rest of the setup look like?

Thank you, it is similar to what I had in the post below, except using a grill lid instead of a flat pan

Pics from last Sunday bake using 100% Caputo, 62% Hydration, 2.5%Salt and ADY. For heating, I used a mix of lump, briquettes and small pieces of wood chunks.

Great looking pies!
Your dough recipe looks spot on.   Do you weigh your ingredients? and what % moisture do you use?

@JEBIV @EricD Thank you

Yes I do, weighing ingredients make a big difference. My hydration varies, 62 to 63% most of the time. Using my online dough calculator makes it easy to vary my dough recipe depending on the temperature I am baking at.

https://www.mightypizzastone.com/2017/02/04/pizza-and-bread-dough-recipe-creator/

For high temperature bakes, I use Caputo flour, salt, water and ADY

For low temperqature bakes, I use king arture bread flour, salt, water, sugar, ADY, Evoo

 Picture perfect pizza... looks wonderful. No Oil in the dough? Does that improve the texture?
