Roasting Turkey on the Baking Steel

While the Baking Steel is a 1/4" slab of steel, originally designed to make pizza and breads, it also is used to regulate your oven's temperature. This translates into an even cook, in your home oven. The heat from the Baking Steel will penetrate your sheet tray, cooking the bird from the bottom up, while still producing an even and consistent heat. This will result in a uniform cook of the bird, a juicy inside and a crisp skin.
This year, we want to share with you the simplest and best way to cook a turkey. It's time to change up tradition and drop your roasting pan at the neighbors. For the best results, all you will need is your Baking Steel and a sheet pan.

Practice is the act of rehearsing an activity over and over again until you have mastered it! Practicing pizza-making at home is a dream activity for just about everyone! Since our Kickstarter in 2012, I have probably made well over 1000 pizzas.

Turkey Pot Pie...or better yet, Turkey Slab Pie made on the Baking Steel...

I took a brined turkey leg, slathered it in duck fat and cooked it sous vide in our Anova Precision Cooker. I then crisped it on the Baking Steel Griddle, duck confit style and pulled it apart by hand. Next, I tossed the turkey and a bunch of delicious vegetables on top of a nice buttery pie crust and poured our delicious roasted apple turkey gravy on top. Launched that baby right on top of the Baking Steel and 30 minutes later the pie was done and we we're blown away by the insane flavor bursting out of the crust.

We clanked our metal spatulas against the Baking Steel Griddle for this Philly Cheese Steak Sub.

It was too good to pass up. The cheap cut of meat shaved so thin, the onions an peppers stewing down in the fat from the beef and the slices of cheese just waiting to be melted into the mixture...
A Philly Cheese Steak sub is just too good to pass up. The cheap cut of meat shaved so thin, cooked on a griddle with some onions an peppers stewing down in the fat from the beef, while slices of cheese wait to be melted into this mixture of love. It's served at almost every House of Pizza in the country. Let's be real, this sandwich is delicious in every way possible. It's hot, cheesy, beefy, peppery and served on a soft and squishy ...

We invaded the fridge, grabbed as much as we could and fired up our Baking Steel Griddle. The Griddle provides enough space to make 6 sandwiches at a time.  The rest is history. Turkey, cheese, cranberry sauce, arugula, butter, pumpernickel, steel. Go!
I'd be willing to bet that if you polled 100 people asking "What is your favorite part about Thanksgiving?" 98 of them would say, "the leftovers!"

Our 25 lb Griddle will give you so much heat, you will be able to feed an entire army. We were able to make round after round of these +Whole Foods Market  buttermilk pancakes, without slowing down. Round 1 was just as fast as round 5. Believe us when we say, the Baking Steel Griddle can do it all.

Now head over to our blog, and get the full recipe for these amazing, fluffy, cranberry pancakes!  
Skip forward to 2015 and enter the Baking Steel Griddle. This heavy, 25-lb slab of steel, is going to give you so much heat, you could feed an army. Round 1 is equally as fast as round 5. So now your guests can all sit down to eat their stacks at the same time!

Create Some Love. Amazing pizza at home.
Introduction

A unique combination of interests and skills led to the birth of the Baking Steel and in my humble opinion, pizza is the better for it.

Although for my day job, I work for a family-owned manufacturing company, Stoughton Steel, outside the office I’m pretty passionate about food – pizza in particular.

My thoughts are never far from creating the perfect crust. As fate would have it, one day, I was reading pieces of Modernist Cuisine by Nathan Myhrvold. In his book, Nathan stated that the best tool to use for making the perfect crust would be a piece of steel.

And that, my friends, was my “AHA” moment!

As soon as I could, I hustled out to our plant, found a piece of quarter-inch, high-quality steel and brought it home for some testing. According to Modernist Cuisine, steel is a more conductive cooking surface than a brick oven’s stone. Because of that conductivity, it cooks faster and more evenly at a lower temperature, resulting in a beautiful, thin, crispy crust. My real-life tests with my steel confirmed that theory completely for me!

I had spent plenty of time over the years with countless pans, pizza stones, gadgets and gear trying to perfect my pizzas in a home oven.  But I was always disappointed.

Who knew the solution had been waiting for me all along in a pile of steel over at the shop. Talk about serendipity! And all because of that awesome insight from Modernist Cuisine!

I’m lucky to be living out this dream of combining two great interests of my life into one amazing product!

Now, like pizza lovers everywhere, you can “create the crust you crave.”
