    Cast Iron Dutch Oven works well and a multi tasker....or I guess you could just toss it on the PS

    A set up for pizza works well for bread. Without that, a Dutch Oven loaf will work.

    In cooking, often we implement steps for which we have no explanations other than ‘that’s what everybody else does’ or ‘that’s what I have been told.’  Dare to think for yourself.

    The book Flour Water Salt Yeast by Ken Forkish and a 4 quart cast iron Dutch oven have really helped me make some great bread on my Egg.

  • I've only ever used the plate setter. Here's some banana bread I did several years ago. To be honest, I've only done it a couple of times just to say I'd done it. IMO, it's just easier to do it in the oven as you don't have to deal with all of the setup required for the egg; including the time it takes to light and get to the proper temp.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I recently listened to a podcast about wit. Congratulations to you, and @lousubcap, for your witty handles.

    Mr Toad...I assume you are the real Rodney D...right?

    Man, it's great to see you are still kicking! Not too many of us old boys are still on this forum. Have you heard of the reunion scheduled over on FB?

    How's your preacher man brother doing? 

    Are you still sailing?

    Thank you; I would've completely missed the "MeTed", and for a couple years I kept reading "Lou's Hubcap", for whatever reason....
