On this thread on: June 03, 2012, 11:57:15 AM you said your friend in Trenton was bringing you Great Lakes Sharp Cheddar and that he felt that plus mozz tasted like Mack's. Did you get the Great Lakes and mix it with mozz and how close was that for you? I think they sell that at Price-Rite here. That was the last post about cheddar you made HERE, in the cheese thread. Have you changed cheese since June 3rd? I still scratch my head wondering why this thread was removed from the NJ Boardwalk Pizza thread; I think I was talking that OF pizza, 1 state over from NJ, was reported by some to be using Brick cheese, and that there may be a connection, and that all got removed anyway I think!
Rereading your post, am I interpreting you are worried that a pro will copy your results and open a shop that tastes just like Mack's, but you DO want a home pizza maker to be able to make a Mack's clone? I'm a home pizza maker and I don't even think I can buy the same flour you are using, nor the sauce! I hope you don't get cold feet about the Mack's clone...
I posted on the boardwalk thread at Reply 1128 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,9068.msg195356.html#msg195356
about a blend of Great Lakes cheddar and the Nasonville cheddar my friend tried, but I havenít tried that blend yet. I havenít decided if I want to try that blend for Tuesday or not.
My daughter did purchase me Great Lakes Sharp cheddar that I posted about at Reply 1080 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,9068.msg191222.html#msg191222
and tried it on a Mackís attempt at Reply 1098 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,9068.msg192494.html#msg192494
Pete posted he is trying to find Brick cheese in his area (which isnít far from me) at Reply 1233 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,9068.msg202634.html#msg202634
I think the cheese part of the Mackís postings were taken off the boardwalk thread when you posted at Reply 25 http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,13499.msg135517.html#msg135517
or shortly there after. I really donít recall you posting about brick cheddar being one state away on the Mackís thread and it being removed.
I know I am still posting on cheeses on the Mackís thread, but only if I try something, or find out something different about a cheese to try. Of course, I do answer other posts from other members on the boardwalk thread if I can.
If you havenít already, and want to find out about Papa Dinoís, (which I think might use the same cheese as Mackís) this is the thread I was posting about Papa Dinoís. http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,20093.0.html
I am not really worried about a pro copying my results, but they would have to read though all the posts on the Mackís thread and this thread if they really want to now what all is involved. Most people come to this forum to find a recipe and everything all in one place. If they want to try and make a Mackís pizza, (as I have done) they are going to have to do some reading.
I donít usually get cold feet, but donít know if I will be ever able to make a decent Mackís clone for anyone. That is my long term goal though, to be able to make a decent Mackís attempt for the home pizza maker, if I can first make one with the ingredients I can purchase and then somehow use regular ingredients home pizza makers can purchase. I donít know if you tried any of the formulations set-forth by Peter or me, but they do a make tasty pizza, even if they arenít exactly the same as a Mackís pizza. I had tried Walmartís tomato paste (to replace the Gangi sauce) in an attempt for a Mackís pizza with added ingredients and that was pretty tasty.
If you are just posting to find out what kind of cheese Old Forge uses, then my posts to you really arenít any good. If I stumble on something that might be like Old Forge it will just happen. I never ate an Old Forge pizza, so I have no idea how they taste. I do make Sicilian pizzas at market though and do use cheddar and mozzarella on them. If you are interested in seeing my Sicilian pies you can look at that board.
As I told you in my other post, just used the search box feature at the top of each thread to put search words in what you might be hunting for. That is what I do to be able to find some posts I posted on for you. I also see other members posts that have the same word, or words I search.
