    My original post was lost with the crash [​IMG]. I felt a bit adventurous today, so, here we go again! Drool Alert (cover your keyboards)....

    The ingredients are for 2 pies, made in double layer round cake pans:


    1 red, 1 yellow and 1 orange Bell Pepper, medium size, diced;

    1 red and 1 yellow onion, medium size, diced;

    Button Mushrooms, pieces & stems, canned, 8 oz drained weight, un-cut, drained well;

    Black Olive, canned, 8 oz drained weight, whole;

    Mozzerella Cheese, 2#, shreaded;

    Pizza Sauce, 8oz jar;


    Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage, 4#, regular, breakfast style;

    This made a finished (un-smoked) weight of 5lb-2oz for the first, 4lb-13 oz for the second pie (just shy of 10lbs total per my taylor scale).

    The process is with very well clilled meat. After forming the meat, place back into a cold fridge until the filling prep is completed, and ready for the pie.

    After the smoke, let the pies rest uncovered to cool for 20-30 minutes. Then, cut out a test-slice to be sure it is cool enough for cutting. If too, runny, re-position the slice and allow to cool more.

    The pan, lined with plastic wrap (a new method for me), and the base meat layer pressed into the pan:

    The cover meat pressed-out and ready to lay-down:

    The filling is in, and the cover is laying-down:

    Pie is covered, GOSM smoker grate placed on top, ready for the flip:

    The pie flipped over on the grate, and ready for the pan-pull:

    Pan is pulled revealing the poly wrap:

    Un-wrapped and ready for some Mesquite smoke @ 225-250*:

    No, you don't have double-vision! LOL!!! Just into the thin blue:


    After a little over 1 hour, time for a probe, and start watching the progress!:

    The Veggies for the filling:

    Cheese, and Sauce already on the heap:

    Filling is mixed and ready:

    I have 54 ABTs and a Hot & Spicy Beef Salami in the SNP with Hickory. I'll post more on the smoke and the finally when I get more pics.

    The first one came out about 15 minutes ahead of the one on the top out perfect for timing on cooling, slicing and eating.

    An hour or so before pulling:

    Temps on internals...pulled them @170*...carryover took them to about 173-174*:

    This is a thin-crust here...but no leakage out the bottom or seams...the first slice after cooling to 149* internal...nice and firm:

    I would'nt change a thing with these pizza pies. They turned out better than any pie I've done so far:

    Would anyone like a plate?:


    These turned out great! The peppers and onion were just a bit crisp/crunchy, like they would be on a regular pizza...and the cheese, remember that these were 5lbs (2 of meat) so the filling was 1/3 cheese. I gotta do these again REALLY SOON!!!!!!!!

    Hope you enjoyed the show!

    Good smokin' to all!!!!!

    Thanks to everyone!
