Home pizza oven
« on: March 07, 2005, 12:50:02 AM »
I have a great old oven it's a O'Keefe and Merritt from 1948 20,000 BTU burner oven. If you can find someone selling one of these old workhorses grab it. 

My oven reaches 550 F in as little as 10 min preheat. What is really great is when cooking many pizzas  the heat recovery is very quick. I use a pizza stone on a rack set to the lowest position and get great pizza.

I live in SF and we mostly have these old stoves becuase noone wants to carry them out down the stairs so we just keep fixing them. I   have decovered them as awsome pizza ovens. It has 600F max temp.

What is even better is the thermostat is adjustable with just a turn of the screw I can go as high as I want.   this is what I'm talking about.

They don't make-umm like that anymore... :(
It's an Earth food. They are called Swedish meatballs. It's a strange thing, but every sentient race has its own version of these Swedish meatballs! I suspect it's one of those great universal mysteries which will either never be explained, or which would drive you mad if you ever learned the truth.
