Where do I get the wood for a brick oven?

@lorenzo, They have a fireplace and get a quarter cord of wood every fall, but we weren't sure on best practices for an oven and I figured I'd crowd-source. Thanks folks!

So Oak is the way to go? I was under the impression that something like fig tree wood or another fruit tree is the way to go. I wasn't sure what the restaurants are using at the moment.

Hmmmm @csuarez... you've piqued my interest... tell me more.

That said, my costume is just going to be a hawaiian shirt and mirror aviators, cause I'm lazy.

Best Cheesesteak in NYC?

I never liked 99 miles. I am, however, a huge proponent of Wogies in the West Village. The beer is good and not expensive. The cheesesteaks are big and kick ass, as is anything else on the menu.

I sort of figured as much, but I'm looking for that combination of "good enough to make me happy" and "ease of getting there" that will make you overlook such things as a slightly overpriced burger. I've spent a lot of time reading Midtownlunch.

Anything with "Dubliner" in its name is probably up my ally. I'm thinking, and correct me if I'm way off here, but everything within a mile of the great lawn is going to be slammed with probably mind-altered hipsters. Like 100,000 of them. I'm both excited and ready to throw 'bows for a seat at the bar.

Poll: Are You a Pizza Purist?

I've had pretty kickass bacon pizza from a place on Bleeker, but that's about as far as I'll go with that... doesn't the lettuce wilt? Though that does sound good...

Poll: Are You a Pizza Purist?

My pizza rants generally know no bounds but I'll keep this short. I'm, on the whole, a pizza purist. Its roots in the utilitarian-on-the-go-plebian-lunch are undeniable and I feel that over-topping is not just a sin to the form, but just damn impractical.

On the other hand, I find knee-jerk traditionalism confining. Margherita is great, but you can do other stuff with it.

I guess what I'm saying is: I had the artichoke slice at the new West side Artichoke last week, and I was a little grossed out.

Equipment: How to Choose a Meat Cleaver

I'm down with anything that says "dexter" on the side. My family has Dexter fillet knives for as long as I remember. They are indestructible and keep their edge forever. Now I want a cleaver. Thanks.

Where do I get the wood for a brick oven?

Hey all,

My parents had a brick oven built for their house with the intention of churning out pizzas every weekend. We've learned how to use it by some family in Italy who were using the wood from trees on their property. Now that we're back in New York, we have no idea where to source this stuff.

Anyone have a good connection/some knowledge on where to get appropriate pizza wood?

Thanks!

Hi everybody! A few friends and I are going to be down in DC for the Rally to Restore Sanity and I'm looking for an awesome pre-going out meal for Saturday night that is logistically feasible to get to should we be dressed up as Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer..

A kickass burger joint would be fantastic (but some place that serves beer, and I'm aware of the existence of Five Guys). Awesome pub? Thanks for any info, I've never been to DC, kinda excited.
