    Ya, there's stuff in progress. I'm messing with the insulation on top- I plan a mosaic of Gamera in the near future

    I'm figuring a rack of ribs would take about 11 seconds.

    I watched a few old episodes of "Dirty Jobs" this weekend. One episode was a potter in the Carolinas that made cool jugs with faces on them, another was a brick factory with enormous kilns and then the last one was a steel mill. Anybody here beside me have a strange attraction to things that catch fire, melt or burn?

    Small steps Gamma, small steps.

    I can't get the thought of making a home built pizza oven off my mind lately. Fire, pizza, beer. It's all good.

    Nope, I don't think I know anyone here like that. Nope, not a one.

    Jon- those face jugs have an interesting history. I have a friend that's an 8th generation potter who makes them. I saw that one, but I missed the brick making segment- I need to find it.

    There was a Sidney Poitier movie called "the Last Brick Maker" was supposed to be really good and showed the process as well. I know folks that made their own bricks for kin building via the old school methods. Lots of fascinating work.

    Those jugs were something special. The brickmaking was season 3 episode 11 on Netflix.

    By the way Jon- if you want to make a simple cob oven for woodfiring pizza- lemme know. I have about 1000 pounds of clay that I don't particularly like and you could have a couple hundred pounds of it if you want to go that route.

    Skulls- unglazed. I like the way the ash lays in the eye sockets- especially when it melts into that green glass.
