The Lahey Method for No-Knead Bread in a Pot

This is the same bread Ross made a few days ago. Thanks Ross ;)

I found the book online called My Bread by Jim Lahey.

I mixed a double batch of the bread dough and let it rise for 18 hours so I could use an 8 quart dutch oven with and without a lid. After 18 hours I fliped out the dough and put it in a towel for two more hours.


I had the large all cleaned out and full of fresh lump up to the fire ring. I heated the egg with the platesetter legs up and bge feet under the 8qt CIDO and lid to 475* for one hour before baking the bread.


After Twenty hours of rising I floped the dough in the CIDO for thirty min with the lid on.


I used a Large CI skillet for a lid. After baking for thirty min with the lid on I took the lid off for fifteen or twenty more min. Then I fliped out the bread to a cooling rack for one hour.


I used my raised food grate for a cooling rack.



I think this is very good bread with some sweet butter on it or anything you can think of. :whistle: :) ;)




  • Thats some fine looking bread I toast mine in the morning and put peanut butter on it. I also got a La Cloche for baking bread

  • That looks great

    Hey Ross, Cindy and I enjoyed making this bread and it was a first on the egg as well. I have used some store bought bread dough and thawed it out and cubed it up to bake some sweet sticky things that were very tasty. :P

    I seen where you posted about the La Cloche. I guess this is all about baking in an oven in an oven.

    Cindy and I are getting better after having a realy soar/clearing throat and coughing all the time. :side:

    I had some BBribs but we waited to long and they went bad. So, now I am going to make some Cordon Blue you got me started on. I have a little twist to them I have a finishing sauce to drizle over them and I want to bread them. I just don't know exactly how to cook them with breading on them. Tim
  • I'm glad you guys are having fun cooking and baking as for the breaded chicken maybe indirect 275*-300* just a thought Tim I have never cook breaded chicken

  • That bread looks great, but TWENTY HOURS??? I think I would forget about it by the time it got ready to put on the Egg or something would get in the way. Heck, here in central FL it might rain cats and dogs from one day to the next!!!
