    Thought I would try making a sourdough starter last Saturday. It has grown nicely. This morning I made sourdough pancakes which were delicious. This afternoon I made this Rustic Bread and baked it outside on the Big Green Egg. Haven't tasted it yet as it's still cooling. I don't expect a real sourdough taste as I beleive your starter sours as time goes on. Now it's sitting in the back of the refrigerator taking a rest.

    That's a lovely loaf! We have a BGE also and I haven't baked on it yet, even though we've had it 2 years. My son bought it and he smokes a lot of meats on it. I don't know how to operate the thing myself, so I would need to bake when he is here to help me with it. One of these days....

    You definiately have to give it a try. I've had my Eggs for almost 5 years and just started to bake on it this week. The bread tastes so good. Here's another I did this week. Rustic Potato Loaf

    Nice! How do you set up your Egg? Do you use the platesetter, then a baking stone elevated with the little feet? What temperature are you baking at? I also want to try pizzas but am really intimidated about transferring a loaded pizza to the Egg without getting it mangled.

    I put in the platesetter, legs down for baking, spacers or the feet between the setter and pizza stone. The temperature is whatever you recipe calls for. Just remember to preheat your stone for a full 45 minutes at the cooking temperature so it it heated through before putting your bread dough on. I use parchment paper under my pizzas so they slide easily onto the stone. Pizzas taste so much better on the egg. I usually cook them around 550-600f. They cook quickly!

    This is so interesting, I've been looking at the BGE for some time and have been fascinated with it. DH already has a gas grill and a smoker so just don't think he'll go for this but I SO want to try baking or pizza making on the grill and these breads look awesome

    Sharon, great looking loaves. I could take a lesson from you on flouring a brottform. The first loaf shows great oven spring....or is it great Big Green Egg spring.

    I bought a brotform as I love the lines but have never been able to get it to look like that. This photo made me remember it and think I need to pull it out and try again.

    You need to flour it heavily.

    Think I'll try to get a loaf on today to give it a try. You know I saw that they sell like "towels" to line it with but seems to me that would defeat the idea of the lines???

    Yes, that's a different style

    The linen cloth absorbs a bit more of the moisture from the surface and you get a crispier crust. I have one of these, but the liner is not removable and it's a pain to clean.

    This is a good source, plus you support the school,
