Default Re: SC Chris's 42" WFO build

On a completly seperate note, I've been thinking that perhaps I need to sandblast somthing onto the SStone, a quote.. No I think some sort of graphic. Maybe a Pig, a Chicken and a Steer?? Or?? this space is just aching for decoration.


PS Hansel and Gretel might be a bit much!

I got out of a meeting early yeseterday and was able to get home about 3:30. I built a fire so I could bake off some hearth bread using a Peter Reinhart recipe. Aside from the time constraints, 2 hours for the dough to wake up and shape up and about an hour to bake. The bread was a great first run. I have to say the idea that so little kneading is required to get great tasting bread and with only flour salt yeast and water and time. Amazing!! As for getting a baseline, not this time.. I did note that there is a large discrepancy between the IR readings on the floor and the dial thermeter in the door, 50 degrees or so. I just need to keep this difference in mind. This difference brings the temp retention with the new entry back to where the low temps seen Monday could more relate to not having saturated the dome and closing the inner door when the temps were really on the low edge of pizza.
