Pizza Hack: Is Copper Better Than the Baking Steel?

Just checking in to say that I'm still alive, and I did send Kenji a piece of 1.5" thick aluminum a few months back. Hopefully he gets a chance to try it out some time, I know he's super busy though.

I'm also really curious to hear if anyone has tried copper with black grill paint or some other method of tweaking the surface characteristics in a favorable manner.

Hope everyone is well, I still miss the talk pages here.....

Pizza Hack: Is Copper Better Than the Baking Steel?

Y'know, I haven't even had a chance to try the piece of copper (identical to the one I sent Kenji) I got for myself. I've also been intending to send him a piece of 1.5" aluminum, just haven't gotten around to it. I work for a large regional metal supplier, so I get the stuff wicked cheap, just a matter of finding the time :-/

Grant, keep your eyes peeled, I'm sure Kenji will have 'something' for you soon ;)

Crisp, Flaky, Pepperoni Pizza Puff Pastry Waffles (Are Awesome)

Anyone know of decent alternatives now that Slice and AHT are dead?

Kenji, have there been/will there be any recent firings or layoffs at SE? If so, who?

My general usage pattern is log on to Slice, look at pizza stories, switch to AHT, read burger stories, done. Once in a while I venture to SE-main, but not often.

Will I still be able to easily access the content I want, without having to sift through everything you guys publish on the main site?

I would never ever blot. At most, tilt and drip.

A Hefty Pastrami Burger for a Hefty Price at Jeffrey's Grocery in the West Village

Noah, you are the one who needs to "step up your game!"

The burger looks like a raw pile of mush. You say it wasn't, and I say learn to take a better photo.

Don't even try to tell me anyone wants to eat a pile of raw beef like that. I call shenanigans in advance on that line of bull.

Did they give you any grief when you sent it back?

You Get What You Pay for at Portland Penny Diner in Portland, OR

Billy, there's always McDonalds if you want a cheap, crappy burger.

Emmett's Does Not Serve the Chicago Deep Dish You're Looking For

It's no surprise that a place serving bad pizza would have such rabid defenders. It's the same 'we know something noone else knows' attitude that infects the 9/11 and moon landing conspiracy nuts. Fuck 'em, that's one less person to worry about taking up space in the line at a good restaurant.

The only thing giving me pause is Scott Wiener disagreeing with the writeup. If it weren't for that, I'd write this place off completely.

Meet the Wood-Fired Pies at Via Tribunali's NY Outpost

Hey, if people are stupid enough to buy snuggies, they might just be dumb enough to buy scissors for pizza. A fool and his money, etc..

My Pie Monday: Manchego, Refried Beans, Kale, and More!

Glad you're still working on the cheese-bubbles issue, AK. I'm looking forward to your final word on the subject.
