Thanks Iwood, well you deserve it for making me 'vacation-sick' every time you post a pic of great food and beautiful Philippines views of your place . You're on my bucket list of places to see.

You an I think alike Bill, it's all about the food isn't it? I did 2 ducks at once in December and everyone loved them. Similar to turkey, it seems the ducks assertive skin & meat take well to the wfo since it picks up the smoke that's naturally created. I have a feeling from my last 2 official 'smokings' that regular oven roasting (duck, chix, roasts etc...) might benefit from a small amount of just clipped fruit wood (not dry chips, may be too smokey for a roast) to add nuance to the roasting. The duck confit I did was 'confi'd' in my kitchen but re-heated later in the wfo. I'd like to try it again 2 days after a hot pizza firing with retained heat for a long slow confit.

RE: the bone marrow, the head butcher was there and offered to cut them length wise but said the lower-level helpers may not be allowed to use the band-saw. If I had to, I'd put them in a vice and use my Sawzall, but thankfully he did it for us.

Porchetta sounds great. I'll have to check that out.

Raffy: I always check out your resort on FB: The Philippines is rising fast in my bucket list...

Last Saturday (Rapture Day!) we decided to have a WFO event since we were pretty sure we'd be staying here on Earth and decided to fire up the Pizza Oven and made Rolled-Stuffed Flank Steak from a great cookbook: WOOD-FIRED COOKING by Mary Karlin. First I "blistered" peppers in embers:


Then pealed them and stacked them on the flank steak with Fontina, spinach, the peppers, Parlsey-Garlic-lemon gremolata:


Then rolled them up:


Then cooked:


Here's the link to a few more pics of the event

I've never roasted peppers right on the embers but it worked FANTASTICALLY well and they had a smokiness I've never experienced before (using bbq or oven burners). The dish presented well and tasted great.

BTW: the warm pizza oven was used the next day for lamb shanks for us (anchovie/olive/tomato marinade) and after a break today, I'll add a few more logs tomorrow for "beer-can chicken" for a mid-week neighborhood party. Once these things heat up and you put the door on it, you can keep cooking and cooking...

The Tuscan grill really does expand what you can do in the wfo.

Dino,

The flank steak looks scrumptious! Great reason to have a party last saturday, BTW.

Dino

As I mentioned months ago, I am in Saudi Arabia. Now because of you not only do I miss my wife, I miss working on my WFO!
Althought I have worked very hard on trying to teach all my friends and family the proper cutting and mortoring techniques, the oven is still in the same condition as I left it in January.
As for the food here in Saudi, it could use a little or a lot of wine to make it enjoyable.

Well now that I have blown off some steam, boy does that flank steak look good!

Keep up with the posts.

Gary

Thanks John and Gary. Gary: we all look forward to seeing you finish your oven whenever that happens .

I realized I failed to post the final product:


Yup, it was good.

Dino - Great looking steaks. I'm inspired to try some new things this summer. I have been busy but down to the punch list on my oven. I will post some updated pics.

Those look absolutely amazing. I have to try something like that on my next firing.

Totally agree. My wife went to Costco and picked up a couple this weekend before this post. Looks awesome Dino! The crazy thing is I have the book, and it's signed by Mary. Your steaks look like the picture on the book - great job. And your right about the grill - gives the oven a whole new dimension
