Creative, going to watch if you slot or not.

Just fired up the oven tonight for the first time this year for a family party. Cook 24 pies and the cf and perlcrete is really keeping the heat in.

I fought every type of peel, but when I bought the slotted one, all the problems went away. You can flour the crap out of it, then give it a few shakes on the way to the oven, and all the excess flour drops away and the pizza does not stick at all.

I heard you talk about this peel before ....I would love one but forno Australia doesn't have any tools. Not big in the metal dept any ideas how to cut slots into a plane metal peel to convert it?
Regards dave

Those are good looking peels I have a compressed bamboo peel as well ( store bought) and I find it better than a metal peel for getting a pizza into the oven. Aluminum for moving and getting them out. The handles on all my tools have been trimmed back over time. They ended up shorter than you would think

Regards dave

If its alloy use a circular saw with tungsten blade, you could always hunt down a laser cutting business and get one cut, the cost to get one cut would be minimal.

Not where I live, they charge top dollar, then multiply by two, but you have to support the local guys.

Not much to report for the last several weeks. (Work, family etc.) But, this is "ground breaking for me": The first blooms from my San Marzano tomatoes. A little late for South Mississippi but, should be a nice, late summer or early fall treat

Thank's Russell
