Livin' in the Northern Adirondacks-plenty of time to cook and experiment w/recipes in the Winter. Summertime, not so much.
It's worth a few minutes to go back through these comments and read all of DM Cavanagh's thoughts,(Our friend passed away a couple of weeks back.) Gives a lot of insight in to his philosophy of pizza, toppings, sauce, etc.! :)
DM was a good friend. RIP buddy.
I'd do it! Actually, I'll do it!
Damn, those look good Kenji! Does salted vs. unsalted butter make a difference?
Build it, and they will come.
Easy. Get the pan as hot as humanly possible. When the smoke detectors go off, put the burgers on. FLip 'em after a minute or so, then put 'em back where they weren't.
@bleu, it's an oldie, but a goodie!
@gb944-Awesome! That could be my next blog!
@jedd-sounds like my house. Can't wait to see the back yard, only about a foot more snow to melt.
@bimini-If I was serious, I'd consider it, although Tup Yours is in the lead!
Max, Looks like you have to do a best 2 out of 3. Great thread. Love it when people go batshit over pizza!
Oh BevisPeters, if you only knew what kind of beatdown you're getting elsewhere.... Dude, let it go, it's a product review!
Looks like a pretty good tool to me. Dental floss can work, but you'd have to have a steady hand. Beavis, you miss the point. Not all of us are skilled as Alton or you. And 60 bucks ain't what it used to be !
I'd do it!
I'm with Adam, Chuckswagon. I say as long as you use good dry hardwood, it doesn't make a difference. It's an oven, not a smoker. A pie in a hot WFO might be there for 1- 3 minutes.
Dew Drop Inn in Saranac lake, NY in the 60's and 70's. I was just cutting my pizza loving teeth then, and the neopolitan they made rocked. Long since closed, but forever near and dear to my heart.
@guycooking, thanks! There's a little more to the recipe story though. My Mom will be 80 in a couple of months, she's a retired teacher, about 25 years now. She got the recipe from a PE teacher named Alice, who was simply, the nicest person I ever met. Always had a smile and something positive to say. After my Mom retired she would bake cookies and sweets and caramel corn and bring them into the faculty room during the holidays. Needless to say, stuff vanished quickly, especially the corn. Long story short, Alice retired about 2002 or so, her husband Paul, a retired science teacher from a year or two earlier had his pilots license.
On a return flight from Virginia in 2004, their single engine Cessna crashed just short of the runway in Lake Clear, NY, killing both of them. So, the recipe my Mom has was written by Alice, and has special significance. And the popcorn rocks! Thanks Alice!
@Teachertalk-I'd do butter to, my mother is a margarine person, me I don't use the stuff!
@Traveller, I am honored to enable you!
I'll get the recipe from my mother and post it. Good stuff! Give me a day or so.
@msecondo, Oh it means exactly what I think it means!
My mother makes the caramel corn during the holidays. It's like crack, it disappears instantly.
I'll try it, but I gotta be honest, I'm not optimistic. But hey, who knows? (Are the Pizza Police listening in?)
