    Thank you.

    Here is my Challah recipe:

    3.25 cups of flour
    1 tbs yeast
    ¼ cup sugar
    1.25 (1 heaping) teaspoon salt
    3 large eggs
    ½ stick of butter
    ½ cup of water
    1 tbs water
    sesame seeds (optional)

    Put all the dry ingredients in the mixer bowl of a stand mixer with the dough kneading attachment. Run on low for a minute to combine the ingredients.

    Put the butter in the 2 cup pyrex measuring cup. Microwave on 50% power (Power level 5) for 1 to 1.5 minutes.

    Separate the yolk from one egg, save the white. Add 1 tbs of water to the white. Put the yolk and the other two eggs in the measuring cup with the melted butter and add ½ cup of water. Stir to combine.

    Pour into the mixing bowl and run the mixer on low until the dough forms a ball and then let it run another five minutes.

    Lightly oil a large bowl. Form the dough into a ball and put in the bowl, turning it to coat it with oil. Cover and let rise until it is doubled in size, 1 to 2 hours. Punch down and let rise again until it’s doubled in size.

    Punch down again. Separate the dough into as many equal parts as you want braids. Roll the dough into ropes and braid it. Cover and let rise for 1 hour. Brush with the egg white mixture. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.

    Bake in a 375F oven until golden, about 35 minutes.

    So these two loaves are from a KA dough hook for the autolyse mixing, adding the levain, and adding salt, after that I do a few folds by hand, but I do it lay out on aboard, so it is literally stretch it out a bit, and then lightly fold it back together, I can not stretch and fold in a cambro. Plus, I don’t think that is healthy for the dough either.

    Thanks for all the advice. My wife is still experimenting with what works best for her. This was her second attempt today using the dough hook.

    RonB I follow the King Arthur videos and lesson too. However, what I have found, at least when I do it, is that with just using the dough hook you can get pockets of flour that doesn’t get properly hydrated. When you bake, you can get little hard pockets of flour with the consistency of marbles. If you use the paddle first for all mixing those never happen.

    While I truly appreciate the kind words, and I do! I have only been making bread for less then 2 years, and have only pursued a few various loaves so far. I like to think the expert has 10,000 hours of this. I also make good q, but I’m not a pitmaster, I’m a guy that has somewhat figured out the Weber kettle and how to set it up for what I want. But no expert.

    I use a dough hook on my kitchen aid, and have developed a way with hand pain, weakness and spasms , to do the following folds. It is my KA that does all the work that otherwise would keep me from making bread. Willing to answer questions. Also, I’m not an expert of any sort. Edited to add, the only real difference in majority of recipes used in a stand mixer vs hand mixed, is y0u need to figure the water temp 10 degrees less from the extra friction heat caused by a stand mixer over hand mixed

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
