Jay,
Drop me an email and we can work out a plan. I have the wall rack here in California and we will be getting more of the stand shortly. I have one stand that I am testing, and the base of the stand is seriously heavy -- more than enough to hold your tools in place.

You can be the second to try them out.
James

Default Cast Iron Grill Pan

My favorite new toy is a Loge Cast Iron Grill Pan. It's heavy, and has a raised grill for searing vegetables, steak, fish, etc.

I've been using it to sear eggplant and peppers. It gets really hot, makes great sear marks and cooks fast.

Here are couple of photos of a cold eggplant salad. Fuzzy photo, but a great dish.

Default Ovenware

We love the heavy terracota earthenware for baking, stews, roasting...whatever. they come in all sizes from a small tomato/basil/goat cheese dish to roasting a whole leg of lamb.....

James, there are a lot of different sizes you could carry if you were so inclined at FB.

Hey Jim,

Like all good hobbies, brick ovens have great toys. The FB store (http://wwww.fornobravo.com/store/) carries lots of good things, including an Infrared and nice Italian made terracotta. I know you can get good terracotta where you are, and we really like our producer in Tuscany.

There is a cultural link that runs from here, through Provence into Valencia. You see wonderful glazed terracotta, outdoor kitchens, olive oil, and rice from one end to the other. Nice was Italian until the 19th century. The bread is better in Provence, the pizza is better here, and the Paella is best where you are. And you get to enjoy it!
James

I have added the copper oil cannister to the Forno Bravo Store. You can find it here. Happy swirling.

Mixing dough with a pasta spoon. I tried this a couple of times after Jim's recommendation to handmix wet dough in the bowl before kneading it on the table. That works, but it's messy. So I started using a pasta spoon and it works well and is easy to clean.

It's one of those "wrong tool for the job" things that works. I can see the hair standing up the back of DMUN's neck.

Default Re: Favorite pan, tool or gadget

I have a tool that I havn't heard mentioned before. I think it's called a "Clinker Grabber," it was used to remove clinkers from a coal fired stoker furnace. A typical stoker would have a hopper and a screw drive auger that would feed coal into the furnace. The clinker is created by the incinerated coal. I use this tool to add wood to the pizza fire,and I am able to place the log right where I want it to go with no mess. It is also handy to move the burning logs from one place to another. Good luck in finding one!!

Jack, can you include a picture? I'm still using my garden hoe for the same task, the wood handle is finely charred.
