You are on the right track. This is a step mash.

Basically mash in your grain with hot liquor to reach 95* for 30 min. Decant some of the wort and heat it, or directly heat the wort to hit the...

I do indeed. Best pizza evar!

The large BGE is 18.5" across IIRC. My pizza stone is 16.5" so no issues there.

Feel free to stop posting again. Just because you disagree with another poster is no reason to cop an attitude. Log out and walk away.
