Agree, that is the way I did my NY eve filet.  Really hot grill pan.  Although, can’t you do the BGE for a hot sear?

 

I'm not a BGE expert (don't even own one...yet) but my understanding is that you can get them VERY hot...maybe even hotter than a pan on a stove.  You certainly COULD sear on a BGE.  It would take 15-30 minutes though to load it up with charcoal and get the fire going enough to reach a high temp.  More trouble than it's worth for a 2 minute sear.

Bucky won't eat take out or restaurant pizza....he likes my homemade...and I love to make it. 😉 

Do you have a secret sauce recipe?  In my opinion, it's the sauce that makes the pizza, with the crust a close second.

Just a lot more effort

Clean, load, lite, wait. 

 

Maybe Rory can get his going faster with his flame thrower. I'm not there yet. Probably takes me 30-45 minutes to hit 600 degrees

Then it wouldn't be a secret, now would it 😉

Most time I just keep it simple with a smearing of pure tomato paste (can't stand the flavored ones).  It's my fresh toppings that make my pie.  😉   My last Pineapple, BBQ chicken, bacon pizza had no sauce at all on it...except what little BBQ sauce clung to the BBQ chicken.  The Pineapple was from we grew ourselves even.  

 

My crust is homemade as well...yup..get out the flour and make a mess.  😄 

 

Hey... I am on "routine lockdown"...time is my friend.  🤭

Did you ever watch one of the latter Kung Fu Panda movie....his Dad finally tells him the secret to his secret ingredient soup...  "There is no secret...it's just noodle soup".  😄

Our very first cruise was on the Disney Wonder when our kids were fairly young.  We had a great waiter (the waiters follow you to the different restaurant venues) who was really funny.  He said something that we still say in our family today..."Soup is just water with stuff in it".

Takes me at least 3 beers to get mine to temperature. At least that’s what I tell the boss. 😇

For all the cat lovers on this thread....

 

In our walk out today, we met 2 "homeless" kitties --

I'm on beer 5 now, but it was a success.

Lot longer than that. Maybe more than 3. Just don’t tell the boss. She is a counter. 

 

The little butane torch worked admirably

sounds delicious.   Now that I am working from home again, I can play in the kitchen during the day.    There are perks to do this virus and working from home 🙂
