Never Hang up the tools. Or allways hang em up!  Everytime I say enough for this year and start packing, I  get a call ! yes this sunday 54 degrees twin 18 YO  girls birthday party ! Then I Got another call from Exec. at BMW whichis headquartered 10 min from Me she wants a small house Party could be huge $500 minimum for 12 -18 people  ;D sure why not!
If they want it I'lll be there -jacket, gloves, whatever !!  :chef: hat too!

Good to hear! I, too, am pushing through the winter months. Not nearly as busy as you, but saying yes to everything I can. Gotta love the outside temps being refrigerator temps  :-D Makes things easy for us without refrigeration prep tables.

Keep on rockin, John! Don't be afraid to update the thread. Us small fish learn a lot from it!

Up date - Fall Parties ! Yes been going a bit but not posting for fear of Ignore button  :-[
Yes its nice to have the cooler temps too some point (about 58 degrees) but does make the dough harder to spread and work with. I did a nice party for about 35 people and it was close to 57 degrees my helper had a tee shirt on! I love the leaves around and the chill. People love the flames more thats for sure! Here was the last quicky
may have a few more but weather pemitting. I actually had to keep the dough in the van to keep it workable, did 1 rack at a time even the Nutella and the Oils were a bit slow. Stilll greatto keep going and keep the dream alive.
Did the regulars and a few seasonal a la Amano  Butternut , Guyere carmelized onions and a spiced apple with cinnimon and real whipped cream OMG!  sorry didnt even get a shot of that 1!

Best of luck!  Already a few gigs lined up!  I am jealous!  Are you going to refridgerate, or use another method to keep stuff cold before you fire it up?  Just curious... :chef:

Return to the Four Grand Mere.!
A great Party 100 people 75 pizzas and roasty toasty warm!
It was around 45 degrees and I could have had a tee shirt on. Our Member RickM did a really great job setting up heated tent and pizza station for the 100 or so guests. The oven was working great and pizzas flying all over. I could Have "worked ?" in a tee shirt  :chef: Great Party Rick!
Thanks again!!

Very Busy but got a few of the first pies coming out and a KILLER Cannoli !
You can see how the lower dome helps the top cooking and bottom stays perfect. These were early on flooor 830 degrees . If you rake the coals you do have to cook off the floor but 60 -70 second is doable I was just too  darn busy.
