I saw this too but wasn't sure where to post it.
At first I was thinking "36 hours..." meant FROM ONE FIRE. Which would totally be doable with a pompeii or anything else insulated. So that they were continually rebuilding the fire over that time span was kind of a let down for me, but still, glad to see my food hero doing the WFO thing, even if it is in just a cob oven

An odd coincidence to see Chad Robertson mentioned. I was just digging into and baking the country boule from the new "Tartine Bread" book yesterday.

As usual per the NYT, the comments are just as interesting as the article.

I liked the comments too...so many people saying the skinned goat made them swear off meat. Where did they think meat came from?

The goat, I know. People are so bizarre. It actually made me happy! Much better than mystery meat from the mystery slaughterhouse broken down by the mystery butcher who knows how long ago.
And damn us elitest backyard WFO cooks who happen to be interested in food enough to care about who produces it AND dare to share it with friends! Evil!

What I like about this is that we can read it and feel superior. While that is an impressive Cobb oven, it appears to be a lot more work to maintain heat in it. Ours stay so hot for days and days with just a good door...

Though i do wish that I could get some more help cooking sometimes...Clearly I need some chef friends.
