I only got two votes. Thanks to the other guy that voted for me. If you'd like my recipe here it is:


French Bread

•   1 pkg. active dry yeast
•   1 cup warm water (110-115 degrees F)
•   3 cups bread flour
•   1 tsp. salt

Dissolve yeast in the warm water and let stand five minutes, until bubbly.

(I use a food processor with a dough blade because that’s what I have).

Add the flour and salt and mix to make soft dough.

Knead dough on a floured surface (or in your power tool) until smooth, springy and elastic, about 5 minutes by machine or 10 by hand.

Spray a bowl with olive oil, put the dough ball in and roll around to coat.

Cover and let rise until double, 1-2 hours.

Punch down dough. On floured surface, roll dough to a 12x6" rectangle.

Roll up dough tightly, starting with 12" side. Pinch edges and ends to seal. Roll and stretch dough carefully to shape, making ends thinner than the center. Place, seam side down, on pizza peel on parchment paper.

Cover and let rise until doubled, 45 minutes to an hour.

Slash top of loaf with very sharp knife in three places, if desired.

Set up your preferred pizza stone arrangement with a diffuser and heat your keg to 450-475. Place a pie pan or similar on your diffuser.

When you’re ready to put it on, pour a cup of warm water into the pie pan and place the loaf and parchment on the stone.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, until loaf is 200 degrees internal temp.

They are closed minded idiots (did I just say that?? YEP!) and they can't see the usefulness of other types of cookers.
