    My first pizza

    Looks good from here! It was also pizza day here yesterday ... love my KK for everything especially Neapolitan pies! Tough crust? You might increase the hydration level a point or two. Or incorporate some Caputo 00 (softer wheat than KA Bread flour) into your next batch of dough. Start with 20% and work up. You will need to increase the amount of water a little because the finer flour absorbs a little more. Also, when I bake (using the same dough recipe) at 650F versus 750F (dome) the crust is a little more dense and chewy. But at 750-800F, using the shaped KK stone, I get good spring from the dough with a thin outer crust and a soft pillowy interior.
  6. FWIW, I'm using Safari 11.0 and it functions without issue on this site.

    KK as Steam Oven for Bread

    FWIW I just keep several pieces of fresh turmeric in the freezer; a microplane makes quick work of it. Just be careful not to get any on a white counter top

    KK as Steam Oven for Bread

    Thread revival: I should probably start a new thread but going to ask here first. Does anyone know if the KoMo Classic grain mill will grind Flint corn? They do state it will grind Dent corn; however Dent corn isn't as hard overall as Flint corn. Thx in advance! Dan

    Dennis' CoffeeChar is such a spoiler! I am just about out of CC and bought a couple different bags of oak/hardwood lump and it burns & tastes OK but the % of tiny fines/pieces is the pisser. You don't realize the care Dennis puts into the CC until you have ... perspective.

    Kitchen aid mixer

    I don't know why I hadn't thought about chopping red meat burger by hand as I always do it that way for tuna & salmon (burger).
  11. Charles & Susan: Even though we have not met outside of this forum I'm still feel rocked and saddened by this news and your loss. Sad doesn't begin to convey ... unfairness. Please accept my condolences and wishes for God Speed peace & healing.

    FWIW: My KA Meat Grinder attachment came with a 4-blade cutter. I prefer a little courser grind so I had a machinist cut off two of the 4 cutters. Made a difference (until the plastic housing for the grinder hopper started cracking). My KA is circa early '80's whereas a friend of mine has a much older KA and his grinder is all metal without any plastic. Since then I purchased an LEM grinder where I can choose from fine to very course via different grinding plates.
