  • Representing Louisiana!

    Anyone is WFO'ing it in Louisiana?
    I am in West Monroe, yes it is north of I-10 but no we're NOT yankees!

    Mmm, alligator pizza or is that Florida, honestly don't know.

    [EDIT: Oh, Northern Louisiana. Sorry, didn't pay attention to that one. I assume there aren't any 'gators up north.]

        One Superbowl win and we'll never hear the end of it. No, I'm happy the Saints came through.

          Bienvenue from Central LA!! Been looking for Louisiana WFO enthusiast and am glad to hear from you. Am not building my oven yet but plans being made for summer -fall so I can hopefully enjoy pizza during fall. Have been trying to find sources for some of materials and still looking for some. Will look forward to keeping up you...have you built yet and if so do you have pics? Thanks

            Crayfish make a fabulous topping! Little butter and garlic, tomatoes, and a light dose of thyme; or olive oil, a toudh of rosemary, and capers; or with Reinhart's white sauce (basically sauteed shallot and cream cooked down to thicken... with salt, pepper and thyme).

            I'll take crayfish over gator any day!

                  Hi Joey!

                  I actually wrote the email with "w" and had went back and edited it, deciding to go with the global spelling as opposed to the Cajun. In either case they are "Good Eats"

                  I didn't think people were ready for mudbugs!

                      I'm down in Alexandria and have had a WFO for about a year and a half. Having fun, several other locals have them as well!

                        Great to hear that there are WFO in CENLA. Am still in gathering stage and gor sidetracked in Fall and built outdoor kitchen instead of WFO but have plans for soon. Where did you find firebrick (inexpensive)? I have only checked Bradley Brick and they are pricey. Any suggestions for insulation blanket? Looking to hear from you soon Thanks

                          I am in Monroe and I got my bricks from Arkansas stone for $1.15 each. On that note I have about 20 or so left over if anyone needs some freebees.

                            Another WFO in Pelican State!!
                            Who Dat?

                            Tu Dat


                            If you feel lost with building your WFO, just pray to St. Stephen who is the patron saint of bricklayers.
