Grout bags are $5 at the Home Despot. Really not worth the marital grief to try to use the wife's pastry set, or the frustration of trying to use a ziploc. That said, my experience was that tuck pointing works better than a grout bag any day of the week.

I can bag vertical joints about 10 times faster than any other way, but I use a hawk for the horizontals as it is just as fast.

Wish I had known about a $5 grout bag. Would have saved me a lot of time and headaches. Now I know for the next wfo.

All the brick veneer is done except for the Chimney. Lights installed and temporarily hooked up.

I have the Tile sitting here waiting, and a local roofer/customer is going to install next week.

I'm cooking for Riley's friends tonight too. All 16 on the soccer team and their parents. It is potluck, so I am only cooking 8-10 pizzas. I lit the fire this morning about 9:00 so it should be pretty well heat soaked by 6:30.

One day Im going to sneak over there and take notes... Potluck huh? I have a feeling the Green Bean Casserole that someones Mom brings is going to go back home with them!

Ours started out as just a movie night but as the day progressed, parents and whole families are now coming I hear. I made 11 dough balls yesterday and just made 4 more. Everyone around me knows about the oven and are awaiting that invite. I'd like to get completely done before I start rotating through the church people and other friends. Good problem to have i guess. Hope I have enough toppings. Maybe ill just start going thru the fridge,,,Carrots,BBQ sauce,butter,rice

Post some photos of tonite Tom

Garner,
Some Romanian friends of ours turned us on to an EVOO/garlic lightly coated on the dough and topped with scallions and raisins. Sounds weird but it is absolutely delicious. Now all our friends ask for it. Everyone has raisins in their pantry they need to get rid of.

May try that one, sounds good.
I'll let you laugh at my rookie mistake tonite. First Pizza, only one guest here so far. I made a pie, one that I wanted because I knew once I got rolling Id have no time to eat much.
I stuck it in the oven and instantly the crust turned black,, before I could even swap Peels!, I quickly moved it farther from the fire and rotated it as the whole thing started smoking,,, then POOF, it was on fire! LoL,,,, i pulled it out and set it on the cutting board,, cut the crust off
I didnt check the floor temp before the first pizza! Turned out it was almost 1000 degrees,,talk about spontanious combustion!,,,, took me 30 minutes and had to shovel out a bunch of coals and swabbed the deck to get it down to proper temp.

The rest of the 15 pies went great!

I only made 8, there was (is) so much food that it is ridiculous. No green bean casseroles with this group. Pics tomorrow.

if you ever get to those temps again, try this one. throw a SMALL amount of dry flour at the flame......you find out why flour mills burn down!
Again Small ....teaspoon size and don't show the kids
