Purpose of this blog

This blog will really be a true web log. I will post here about different wood-fired ovens as I find them.

If you know of any wood-fired ovens I should know about, you can send an e-mail to me. (If you build wood-fired ovens, I would like to hear from you too.)

There will lots of posts and lots of labels, since I plan to create one post for every appropriate web site that I find, and however many labels it takes to describe each one (usually at least the type of page and the location of the oven).

The accumulated information will still be found at the real Quest for Ovens web site links pages, but that is not updated as frequently as this blog will be.

If you are from outside the US and Canada, let me know what you find interesting about it. I see that I get visitors from India and Iran, and other faraway places. I'd like to know what draws you to this blog.

I received e-mail from the organizers of the BBC Two television show asking if the Saint Paul Bread Club could post a notice about their show Great British Bake-Off for amateur bakers. The information they gave me is now accessible through a link. (The organizers don't have a web page for the show itself yet.)

Please share this with any amateur bakers in Great Britain you may know, or post the link where they might see it.

The Rolling Stonebaker, Beverly Shores, Indiana

An on-line article from a site about northwest Indiana profiles a couple who created a mobile oven business centered in Beverly Shores, Indiana.

They call their business The Rolling Stonebaker.Their home page has a couple of neat pictures of their truck.

The article says in part:
Georgian and Chaddock cooked up the idea of The Rolling Stonebaker pizza truck, a reconfigured 1949 Studebaker fire truck that debuted last summer at Michiana private parties, farmers' markets and impromptu roadside events. The Stonebaker serves pizza from a wood-fired brick oven at the rear of the truck. The Stonebaker was so popular the Beverly Shores, Indiana, couple purchased a second antique Missouri truck for this season, which runs through Thanksgiving.
 It's clear from their site that they move around a lot.
