    Wood fired pizza oven.

    I just follow the per pound guidelines for cooking whole turkeys. Add a couple minutes extra if you want crispy cracklings 😜

    Wood fired pizza oven.

    Here’s some pictures, kid for scale. This is the second one, built at my house. The chimney is on the outside of the door btw. It just helps direct smoke up and away.

    Wood fired pizza oven.

    I’ve built two. Both very crude but very functional. Neither ever got a finish coat of plaster over the cob and both are still standing. the most important thing I learned is that the ratio of the door opening relative to the interior ceiling height is critical. The door should be 60% of the...

    Whatch-ya-growin?

    I believe the rootstock does effect the resulting wine. A large part of the variation in regional wines is the soil and weather. Different rootstocks are going to grow differently if grown in the same soil. Add to that any mycorrhizal interactions and or disease fungi and I could see the...

    The morgan block

    I’ll sometimes jus tie a second tag line to the pieces if I need to pull them like that. Even if the piece spins the end of the tag line is still on the ground.

    Whatch-ya-growin?

    I planted chestnut and pawpaw trees this winter, as well as walnut, heart nut, persimmon, doughnut peach and a few more apples. I finally deer fenced our front yard area, looking forward to a big pumpkin patch this year!

    What are you using for SRT and why?

    I climb on an akimbo (duh) and usually carry a second akimbo, a steel triple lock biner and a sling+biner combo ( I love the eidlerid cord loop slings!). I have an art positioner on my lanyard. The second akimbo gets used often as a short system either off the tail of my main line or with a 20’...

    https://www.wesspur.com/items/he15.html This is the rope I’m currently using. It works great. I’m sure all the colors work equally well. XTC looks nice too

    The morgan block

    I actually now use the 1/2” Sampson almost exclusively. It gives a great balance of grip and light grab for big and small pieces. It also seems super durable compared to the stable braid. I started with both brand new, now the stable braid looks like it’s been through hell and the Sampson just...

    The morgan block

    Hopefully this weekend we’ll have a video to post. I decided to keep things simple and not include any info on using it 3:1 in the manual, too much noise. I’ll see if I can make a short demo vid of just that setup.

    Has anyone tanned a snake skin?

    i looked around and didn’t have much luck finding one in the area. I’m sure they are out there, but the only one I found local never returned my call
