Fun stuff Ken. It all looks great! Nice to do some retained heat cooking, huh?

Southern Indiana red wine??? Is that close to Tuscany

Ken,

Congratulations! Looking back over your build has been inspiring, but your description of your weekend cooking might be the real kick in the pants that gets me started!

Well, that and finding some recycled bricks...

The biscotti look delicious.

Ed

I knew I'd catch heck for that!
There are several wineries in southern Indiana now. They seem to be turning out some acceptable drink.

Ken,

Your oven looks great! Is the roof metal? Was it difficult to install?

Thanks.

John

I'm just catching up with your progress - congratulations! You've sure been busy!
The enclosure looks great and that first marathon bake session sounds like it was a hit.
Guess you've got those Q.C. cuties to thank for keeping you on track .

Congrats my friend.
It looks like you made full use of the firewood that you burned!

It looks like(to me) that your WFO exceeded your expectations!
That's a wonderful feeling.

Great Job!

How did you serve that pulled pork?


Dave

Saturday after lunch, the oven was still at 370F so we made a batch of Xabia Jim's Biscotti (pictures below). The biscotti's were great and we devoured them all. They were a tad chewy. I don't think I cooked them long enough the 2nd time.

After we were done baking the biscotti we decided to run to the store and grab a 7lb pork shoulder (Boston Butt). We rubbed it with Famous Dave's rib rub and put it in the oven at 8pm last night. At 9am this morning the shoulder came out and pretty much shredded itself. The oven was still at 220F. Our Sunday BBQ lunch was outstanding.

This was our first real trial of the fully insulated, completed dome. I can't tell you all how tickled I am with this thing. Everyone was thoroughly impressed. Thanks again for all the encouragement!

Here's to many more weekends and recipes to try and share....
very nice Ken....

(you're not supposed to eat all the biscotti in one sitting )
