        I nominate Frances, for the research and development prize, for testing the sand-and-fireclay-only mortar,



        for scoping out an entirely new and better flue tile,



        and for, presumably, doing it all "auf Deutsch".

            I 2nd the nomination. (That would be Dave)

            I want to 3rd it! Cracks me up every time I read it.

                I'd like to second Les' nomination, and also nominate Ken524 for his beautiful dome. How about two categories, one for a (virtually) mortarless dome, and one for a regular one?

                  I nominate ASUDaveW. His amazingly low cost dome and bumps & bruises surely qualify him for a 5-pack of pizza flour!

                      Ditto.

                      I am constantly reminded of something that a mentor taught me many moons ago. IF IT WAS EASY, EVERYONE WOULD DO IT.

                              Ken and Les both have done excellent work, but my vote goes to Les (For November).
