They're better than canned green beans. :-)

Congrats on the weight loss! :-):-)

How long have you been dieting or working on your health? What's your goal?

I resigned from my job in the DC area back in Feb and drove cross country to Scottsdale with the sole purpose of losing 100-105 pounds by Dec 1st with little to no work to interfere with my plans. Since I began BOTH my diet and exercise program on March 25th, I'm down 23-24 pounds in just about 5 weeks. I feel so much better already and over the hump of getting to the gym on a regular basis.

Good luck and keep it up! :-)

Let me guess, she would throw the can of green beans at you! :-)

I stand by my comment that they're better than canned green beans.

It's a race to the bottom! :-)

Kinda like would you like to kiss your aunt on your mother's side or would you like to kiss your aunt on your father's side? :-)

I agree, canned green beans are probably the WORST veggie in a can. Like green mush! :-)

I believe Crayola based the color "olive drab" on the color of canned green beans.

Congrats.

The only problem I've run into is that I have a hard time getting the dome temp up quite as high as I'd like without making the bottom too hot. I think the answer would be just a shitload of lump charcoal around the edges making sure that there's no direct heat on the stone but rather high enough convection above it that it eventually heats on its own. You need real lump charcoal for the BTUs but it burns so fast that it takes a lot of tendering. Maybe just fill that back basket with a shitload of good quality lump as a compromise. Trying to get underneath it while it cooks is just so damn hard that I always use briquettes down there b/c of the long cook time.

What I've done recently is cheat a little bit. I'll launch my pizza, rotate it for a bit to get the leopard spotting, then I'll grab my metal 'retrieval' peel, pull the pizza and set my grill scraper underneath it; one of these cheap, shitty things (I'm pretty sure an in-law got me that thing at some point):



There's no real surface area in contact with the stone or the peel at that point so you have no more conductive heat from the bottom passing through the peel. It's all just radiant/convection heat. And when the peel has been out of the grill, it's cool enough to by a lot of time.

By raising the top of the pizza near the top of the baking steel that has all that heat trapped in it due to thermal mass, it essentially acts as a broiler that browns/crisps anything on top that hasn't gotten where you want it without burning the bottom. You can rest the handle of the scraper and peel on the lip of the kettle pizza and it keeps everything nice and level. If you try it, you'll see what I mean.

It's a work around for when you don't have your oven dialed in exactly right but it's a pretty bulletproof method.

Today I learned that if you're making dough, there's a formula to figuring out how hot the water should be. It's different if you use a preferment. But you want the dough temp to be 75-78 degrees, so you multiply that by 4, and subtract flour temperature, the poolish temperature, room temperature and friction factor (10 degrees if by hand, roughly 30 if by mixer). So if room temp is 69 and flour is 68, poolish is 75 and you're mixing by hand: water temp = (4x78)-(69+68+75+10); 312-22=90 degrees. Water should be 90 degrees.

I don't use instant yeast so I have to bloom it. Proper bloom temp is anywhere from 90-110. So I go with 110 and I'm guessing that by the time it's rested/bloomed, I'm at 90 anyway.

So sometimes you just stumble ass-backwards into the right answer. Or, more accurately, sometimes the right answer isn't nearly as precise as some would have you believe...

Yeah, there's no way I'm gonna do that math. I've never had trouble with 100 degree water.
