  1. Sorry, but I only have that measurement in inches and cubits
  2. It’s the (good) bacteria that gives sourdough the tang (and keeps the other nasty critters at bay). Water, flour, and some time (few days to a week) is all you need for a robust starter.
  3. Waffles look amazing! Grab your towel and don’t panic! I think you might need a true natural yeast starter and it’s yeast/bacteria combination to get any hint of sourdough
  4. I’ll be right over for breakfast. I’ll bring th oj
  5. ... or prescription meds to cure them
  6. This has never, ever happened to me. Having said that, I will likely do so the next time I’m within toe-stubbing distance. Thanks a lot
  7. Great post! We obviously enjoy our kamados, kamado cooking, talking about our kamados and our kamado cooking, buying stuff for our kamados, reading about kamados, looking at pictures of kamados, etc. They’re versatile tools that excel at lots of different things. But they are tools and sometimes the wrong one for the job at hand. Or just one alternative among other tools.
  8. Happy belated birthday wishes, @John Setzler, and thanks, as always, for keeping this site running
  9. Last time I got called for jury duty (New York state court), it was phone-in, for four days. My number was not selected, so I did not have to appear in person. The time before that, I did have to appear in-person but was excused that day after voir dire. I received a questionnaire several years ago for federal jury duty but never received a summons to appear.
  10. 15 minute cook definitely points to low temp not faulty thermometer. Fire looks good with the lid open. Oxygen is fed from the open lid. Closing the lid chokes down the air flow and the fire.
  11. My physician doesn’t have to practice. He KNOWS it
  12. Great job! Mouth watering. Can I come over for dinner, please?
  13. Agreeing with the above posts that you almost certainly have an airflow issue. I suspect ash/dust/smalls/rocks plugging up the holes in the charcoal grate. Let us know if you find a solution.
  14. Great video @John Setzler! I see a warning to not exceed 700*. With wide open top and bottom vents, one could easily exceed 700*. Im wondering if the DoJoe is designed to limit airflow so that the 700* limit is not exceeded, even with a wide open bottom vent.
  15. The battery on my car's key fob died after only six years. I was p***ed. I was only the third owner, after the car was first stolen and then totaled by Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy. I called Kia to complain. They made it right and sent me two Ferraris, a McLaren, a platinum Rolex for me, one for my wife ... along with a new battery. I also wanted a Kia hat, but they refused. Hyundai for me next time.
  16. That Classic II must have been built late on a Friday afternoon
  17. There’s some fascinating information on CI restoration on castironcollector.com. I have no affiliation with them, just passing along some info that might be helpful or useful.
  18. Cool project pan. From what I hear, one’s first vintage cast iron can lead you down quite a rabbit hole...
  19. Nice build, @acr!! Looks great with a well thought out design!!
  20. An IR gun is a worthwhile investment, especially for pizza. Stone temp is one factor in turning out a great pizza, where the dough is cooked from below and the toppings are cooked from above.
  21. Very cool! Good luck with this venture!
  22. A poor carpenter usually blames his tools
