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.

Bare-bones history of web links

I put together a bare-bones history of all of my web links related in some way to wood-fired ovens. (3/7/2012: There are over 3000 links on the pages.)

There is an index page at the top level that links to pages for each month that added any links to my bookmarks.

Looking back I can see that I started much earlier than I realized (2006).

I seem to have collected the most links in 2010.

The main purpose of the collection is so that can ensure that I don't lose any links in case of browser disasters, but they may be of use to somebody.

(At some point I may make them prettier, but I was most interested in getting them written.)
