I got my kettle grill pizza cooking set up for Father's Day and finally got a chance to try it out. It'll be a bit of a leaning curve, mostly trying to generate and maintain enough heat. I had it firing to a bit more that 650 degrees, with coals and wood chips, for a short burst, but it fizzled down to 525 in short order. Still plenty warm but not optimal. There's a saw mill close by that chips up all the waste lumber, that should be better than the shavings I was using tonight.

Plan to replace the old Webber kettle grill in the near future, this one is a hand me down from my FIL and has seen better days but it'll do the job for a little while longer.

Anyhow, here's a few pictures.

Made a pair of pizzas but only took one photo of a finished pie. This one was for the kids, 1/2 Chourico (Portuguese Sausage) and 1/2 meatball with tomato - basil spaghetti sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese and a sliced up fresh mozzarella ball. Added garlic powder and Italian spices too.

My wife ordered it on the internet from out local Ace Hardware. Their price was in line with Amazon, if not a little less, and pick up at the store.

That's cool, didn't know they existed either.

I don't have a Weber Kettle Grill anymore, went to a natural gas Weber Grill years ago.

I do have a bar type pizza oven that I like better than firing up the oven, heats up quicker and I like the way it cooks.

YUM!

I cooked cheeseburger egg samiches for the boys today on the grill this morning. I used aluminum foil to hold the eggs while in a pan on the grill. LOL. :tango_face_devil:

WOW that looks good mike!! How long does it take??
It takes only 10 minutes or so if the heat is up in the 650-700 range. 15 minutes if it's in the 500 range. I need to work on maintaining the heat level. Going to try bigger wood chips and see if that helps.

You're more than welcome to drop by anytime, Ellis! :tango_face_smile:


Been experimenting with Sweet Italian Sausage meat, rather than the links, and boy what a difference. So much more flavorful. Going to have to start writing down some of the better concoctions so I don't forget the real good ones.

That looks great! Add me to the list of people who didn't know those inserts exist.

I've made pizza a few times on my propane Weber, I thought it was very tasty, but I'm sure not as good as wood/charcoal.

I do have a bar type pizza oven that I like better than firing up the oven, heats up quicker and I like the way it cooks.
What's a bar type pizza oven?

Very good --Mike--enjoy the tasty, dude,

Thanks guys, if for no other reason, cooking outside is far more entertaining than in the house. At least in the summer anyhow.



I have friends coming over Sunday afternoon for pizza. I'll be dropping by a local hardware store that has 18# bags of Hickory wood chunks tomorrow and try those out. I don't have any oak firewood handy but will grab a few logs from my dad this fall when he starts stacking firewood and chop them into pieces. For now the bags of Hickory should help. :tango_face_smile:

Mike, I think the kettle pizza is made right here in MA! I'm thinking Northern part of the state. My previous job had me doing alot of driving around this state and just happened to see a sign. Looked it up and was quite impressed!

No kidding, never thought to look at its origin. Thanks for the heads up MrLB!

My sister makes pizza on a propane grill. Tastes great, but I'd love to try it on a wood fired grill.
