I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

Do you live close enough to Gene to actually get to see the oven in action sometime Craig?

IhI
Craig lives about 300 miles North of my house, no big deal for a Texan.


 Craig will get to see the oven in action in Tom's driveway, and again at my house.

Swinging by Pa. with it should be no big deal for a Texan either, right? ;)

That would only be a small detour for a Texan.  But that detour would not be approved by the warden and therefore won't happen.

Tom if you get a chance, post a picture from a bit farther away.  I can't exactly figure out where you are working at...

Thanks.

Pay no attention to the mortar smears, they clean right up.  I think I want to paint the outside of the entry with high-heat black paint, then finish coat the stucco with bright red.  That work?

Remember Tom suggested block ice to move your oven into the Garage?  I'm thinking of using margaritas to move the oven onto the porch.

If I drive a careful 5 mph back from Austin, it will only take 60 hours to get home.   ???

I hold the world record for slow travel from Baton Rouge to Lafayette, 60 miles, 14 hours.  We were on our way home from Destin FL, summer break in 1982.  We had borrowed a work van, loaded it with 40 cases of Old Milwaukee, a pound of sinsemilla, and very little common sense.  It was all good until we hit Red Stick on the way home when the transmission decided it did not like being hot.  We would drive a mile or so, then have to let it cool for an hour or two.

I also hold the record from Hammond LA to Lafayette, 22 hours.  My Chevelle overheated about 50 miles after we missed the SE University exit for a fraternity party.  Finals, and more importantly, Toga party the next day, forced my entourage to abandon me.  I could make 3-4 miles before I had to refill the radiator, the water pump was toast.  By the time I hit the Atchafalaya swamp, I had collected about 20 gallons worth of containers that got me across the 20 mile bridge.  I made the toga party, but not the finals, <shrug>.

I'm thinking I'll be drinking margaritas as I watch you move the oven to the porch.  ;D

LOL that's awesome. I'd drive 300 miles to see something like that happen. Proud for ya man, the stuff you bake in that thing will be awesome no doubt.

300 miles is about driving around Houston on beltway-8 3.5 time.  If you live in Houston, you are already accustomed to long distance driving. I usually drive to Fort Laurdale, Florida couple of times a year that's about 1200 miles.

Looking forwared to see pictures of the pies comming out of that oven.
