The Temp

12.27.10

I was doing dishes. Thinking, ‘it would be nice to have a fire this evening‘. I’d spent the morning knocking down some excess trees and dead wood on our lot. Wood was on the brain. But my usual setup [a re-purposed bbq], albeit sufficiently functional for cookery, is far from romantic to sit around for the evening. ‘If only I had something I could put a fire on‘, thought I.  There was lots of snow. It didn’t even have to be that intelligent a setup

    And… why not “start” the outdoor oven this summer. You will get lots of help! Remember: just ask.

  2. TTC – cool project, but I’m flush with projects, and tend to like to natter on at my own pace. Thanks for passing on the link – I’ve had some resounding successes and serious flops from that book now, so curious to see how others fare on particular preparations.

    I’ll tell ya: it has been educational to be heating and cooking with wood exclusively. Anyone who isn’t quite sure what a cord of wood looks like, but more importantly how long it takes to burn through (so to speak), can rest assured it becomes obvious very quickly given a basic introduction.

    On that note, and as a result, I’ve become obsessed with the importance of planting trees… all kinds… everywhere possible…

    Greg – I believe it. I’m going to guess you go through more than most folks would think?
