Hello everyone, I am Jim and I live in the Kansas City area. My interests include fishing, smoking cigars, and drinking whisk(e)y. I also love cooking outdoors, I have a stick burning offset smoker that is hot almost every weekend when the weather is decent. I have been thinking about building a wood fired oven and while researching that idea I stumbled upon this forum. I feel I am a good home cook but have had problems working with yeast doughs. I look forward to learning the techniques the members on this forum use to create the awesome looking pies I have been seeing. Hopefully I will be able to document and share my own experiences as I make my attempt to master the art of pizza making.
