  1. Fire Bowl is here rejoice !

    Good outcome, despite the intervening frustration.
  2. There are no dumb questions, only dumb answers
  3. Thinking of getting Joe Jr

    GO FOR IT!!!
  4. equifax security breach

    Chex Systems is another reporting agency (www.chexsystems.com). Going to DEFCON 1 and freezing all credit reports may be right on the border of paranoia; which side of that border, I'm not so sure about...
  5. equifax security breach

    The free identity protection service is a joke. I had some "Trusted ID" service for a few years after the Anthem security breach. Credit cards and mobile phone services were opened. Trusted ID did basically nada. Freeze all 3 credit reports and Chex systems, and hope for the best.
  6. First Akorn Sourdough!

    nice! sourdough bread on the akorn is on my to-do list... when time permits
  7. Sourdough pizza success

    great looking pizza!!
  8. Pizza Fail

    Keep at it! The (yummy) results are worth putting in the time and effort to perfect!! there is a ton of good info and tips on this site, especially John's recent video. Ken Forkish's Elements of Pizza is also a great resource. Pizza is simple, right? I mean there's a pizza joint every few blocks or so in my neighborhood. Wrong! There's the dough. Some work great for high temp cooks. Others (those with sugar, oils, etc.) don't. Home made. Store bought. Lots of variety and variables to contend with. Then there is thickness. Thin, cracker-like pizza. Deep dish. New York... Toppings. Lots of cheese? veggies? Meat? And then there's the cooker. You're dealing with a heat source below the pizza, but you need heat on top to cook the toppings. Done temp matters, but so does that of your stone (or steel).
  9. Pizza 101 lessons applied

    Yummy looking 'za!
  10. Maybe age and life experiences have taught me perspective... sure, it's aggregating and disappointing and perhaps infuriating. BUT, it's a ceramic fire bowl. I'm sure they'll make it right. If not... who cares. Buy a new one. What ever. Why not call KJ and explain the situation instead of ranting on a forum. Be happy. Eat, drink, and be merry. Take only pictures, leave only footprints. Sing in the shower. Dance in the rain. Smile, smile, smile. Find peace.
  11. Baking Steel 15" Griddle

    I have the same pizza steel/griddle. Pricey, but works great for pizza! The griddle is nice, but I don't nearly use it as much as a griddle. It does take a loooong time to heat up.
  12. First Akorn Pizza

    what was your cook temp on the "I slept in but I want Pizza tonight" dough? I'm assuming around 500*F given the 70% hydration.
  13. Reconsidered the gateway and decided to cancel my order. Looking forward to hearing comments on the gateway and the Smoke app.
  14. First Akorn Pizza

    Great looking pizzas!
  15. received the same email & just placed my order.
