I remember the first Alumalina, where I watched everybody else watch their Airstreams get pounded with hail--twice-- in about 30 minutes. I've put in a requisition for calm weather, we'll see if the request is approved.

Hmmmm.

Thanks for the info.

Definately a weekend to remember. Hope you are in good graces with the boss, and can send favorable weather our way.

We have come a long way in 3 short years. We almost know what we're doing.....almost.

If you can find an aluminum oil changing pan at a hardware store, that is heavyweight and can be reused. It looks like a large baking pan

It's too early to know what we will bring.

Have to see what the weather will be like....and what I feel like cooking.

We will certainly make a contribution to all meals....plus snacks....and, lots of bread!

The way it looks, Marie, Sophie and I are planning to drive down early Saturday, bring anything that gets ordered from the parts department with us for delivery (no body panels or axles), and possibly give a seminar at some point that day. Then heading back home either before or after dinner, depending on how y'all feel about freeloaders showing up without a trailer, stove, or mudslides...

Oh just saw that someone else is already bringing hotdogs. Well find something else to bring! But we can still provide the hotdog cooker if desired.

Oh, bring a bag of chips and a carton of dip from the store, and stay for dinner, for pete's sake!

No one cares if there is no trailer and no mudslides.

And, Terry, you don't have to play Mr. Fixit.

Looking forward to seeing you two.

We will be bringing around 8-10 folding tables ourselves, although we may need a few more, and everyone will need to bring their own chairs. Let me know if you can help - thanks!
Does this mean you are not leaving enough room in the truck for Karen (or the other Darrell)?

No fair, gotta stop teasing us. I'm stuck in STL for the weekend. Can't get anywhere near a DO or your promo bread.

Folks Maggie sent me a bunch of stuff to read, kinda feels like homework! Been real busy for work. Must catch up.

I want folks to know how doable this bread is in the DO with charcoal.

Next loaf will be cranberry/orange/pecan.

Road loaf #5: Cranberry/orange/pecan

Yes, the last loaf is already gone....but we had help.

This one is a bit dark on the exterior, but delicious and perfectly done inside.

If you want optimal conditions and a picture-perfect loaf every time....you bake in a traditional oven.....and only a traditional oven.

This is a bread you mix one day and bake the next. When I set it out for the second, pre-bake rest this morning, it was overcast but otherwise quite pleasant outside. By the time the coals were ready less than an hour later, the wind had picked up, temps had dropped about 20 degrees and it was raining.

Nevertheless....there was no backing down at that point, so bake we did. Wind equals charcoal burning hotter. All part of the on the road experience.

In spite of some inconsistencies in exterior browning with the charcoal, this is an extraordinarily easy, versatile and predictably delicious bread that anyone can make.....in a traditional oven or your DO if you choose. I wish I could take credit for developing the original, basic recipe, but I'm simply not that clever.

Now that we have got the briquette #'s figured out, and baked this particular bread today...more dense than the others....we know it will work with charcoal.

Looking forward to sharing it in March with anyone who is interested.

This is, therefore, my last loaf post.

Maggie
