where would my pictures be without Scott making fun of the ones I took in my baking steel thread  :-D   I have new lightbulbs in the kitchen because of Scott.  seriously, he made me pay attention to that and helped hasten my testing with the baking steel and that's just the specific help, not the knowledge i have gained just by reading his posts in general  so I'm in.   

I bought a new camera and am willing to loan Scott my old one to document his journey with this.

Chau, I pm'd you so let me know how much and your address, good for 20-30 whatever it takes. If you are up to 18 people that's 20 and change no problem!

Whatever is left to reached the $370+ I'll make the final contribution to seal this up.  I'm not on the forum that much anymore but would like to contribute.

Wow,  very generous of you Polishpizza.   Let's let this run another 3-4 days and see where we are at and then we can figure something out. That will allow a few more folks who haven't seen the thread opportunity to participate should they want to.

All I want is for Scott to make great NY style pizza in his BS oven and then I want to read his method here and make one just like it.  ;D
So add me to the list also.

Scott has helped me tremendously in the short time that I have been a part of this forum. In fact, he is the one who has tweaked my current formula for NY Style and convinced me to get onboard with a big ol' hunk of steel!  ;D His knowledge (along with many others on here) of pizza is ridiculous and invaluable. With that said, count me in and thank you Scott! (Im sure I will be picking your brain more in the future  ;D )
Chau, please PM me where I can send my donation.

Thanks!

If not in part for Scott123's contributions to this forum, my family, friends, and myself would not be enjoying the current quality of my weekly bakes that are directly attributable to utilizing the steel plate configuration in a home oven Scott advocates...count me in!

I already contacted and pledged my support, but am hoping that once Scott gets his Blackstone, he can shortly give us a table of temps for bottom and top stones for different pizzas.  I got my Blackstone yesterday, and on my countertop pizza oven with a corderite stone,  600 would burn the bottom of the crust if it stayed in for more than 2  1/2 minutes, with the blackstone, the bottom stone was close to 700, and it hardly browned the bottom in 2 1/2 minutes.  I obviously need some practice to see the difference in conductivity with this stone, but am sure that Scott can work it out for us.

Chau,

Sent you a PM. I'd like to contribute to the cause. Scott among the many others on this great board have been a great resource and constant inspiration for me. My family and friends (and their tastebuds) thank you all.

Hope to be posting soon about my stacked brick oven build once it's ready for prime time.  :chef:

Thank you Scot, Chaze, Adam, and Jeff!  We've got enough supporters and Scott will be ordering the oven soon.   I'll contact everyone who has pledge in the next few days with how much and where to send the donation.  Thanks again everyone for making this happen so quickly.

Barryvabeach, yes Scott should be able to give us some valuable insight into maximizing it's use.

Sorry, I don't know anyone on this site. 

I'm just a lurker for the past week, but it was quick and easy to see that Scott is one of the many helpful contributers.

If I'm not too late, please count me in.

Ok folks.  We have enough contributors to get Scott an oven.  I believe the oven has been ordered by Scott yesterday and I sent him out a check for it.   I have notified everyone who wanted to contribute to the fund via private message.   If I somehow skipped you then please let me know. 

If folks want to keep posting nice comments about Scott, that is encouraged.  If folks want to keep sending me $ for the heck of it, well....that would be nice as well.   :-D

I hope Scott will post up a picture or 2 of his oven and pies here when he is ready. 

Thanks again to all who contributed to the BS oven fund.  It was very generous of you all and it really didn't cost much once spread out among the masses.   ;D  Shows what we can do when we work together.

LOL!  Post of the year... :-D

Ok, just wanted to remind folks that when sending in your contribution, only send in upwards of $15.  Do not send your original pledge amounts if it was more than $15 as I don't do refunds!  ;D  JK, I will do refunds.

Also if you don't mind, please include your forum name when paying so I can take you off of my list.  I only know some of you by your forum name.  Thanks.

My oven has arrived! I love it!

This is like a decade of birthdays and Christmases rolled into and one. It's one of the nicest things anyone's ever done for me.  Thank you, everyone, for your incredible generosity and exceedingly kind words.

Chau, thank you, especially, for putting this all together.
