    Bread... Sometimes you just have to wing it.

    I'm a sourdough guy... Mostly. Sometimes your starter is not ready when you want to bake bread. So one must wing it and lower themselves to use commercial yeast.

    I decided to do a 15 hour preferment and then add 20% of the flour as Whole Wheat, just for the fun of it.

    All turned out well...

    Breadhead when making the hamburger buns the recipe is only for 6 buns. If I want to make 12 buns do I have to make the recipe twice or can I just double everything?

      Double everything except for the yeast. That small packet of yeast will rise 1000 grams of flour. Do everything exactly the same and all will be good.👍

    Looks good! One day I'll take up bread. I have never been successful with bread, but one day I'll jump back into it!

      Bread is like BBQ... easy once you figure it out.🤗 Once you understand the critical details it's a forehead slapper, and you wonder why you thought it seemed so difficult before.

    I love bread. I don't eat as much as I used to though. It would be hard not to with stuff like that around.

      I made tons of breads, cakes, muffins, biscuits, pie crusts, cookies etc.. in culinary school. Not really my thing. I dig the rolled dough and the clafoutis though. I respect Breadhead and admire his dedication to the formula and craft. Just sharing a few pics.

        Breadhead thank you sir. The rolled dough though. Oh my world!! We had the rotating Fisch ovens with 5 or 6 shelves, and some covects and combis. Amazing. I submit we produced far better bakers and pastry arts folk then cooks. Their were more cooks which leftbmore oven time for the bakers.

        There are some ovens made specifically for baking bread that most people don't even know exist. 6 rack ovens that have built in misting system... that's like baking 60 loaves of bread in a douch oven. Perfect steam at exactly the right time and then it shuts down to brown your crusts.👏

      Nice inventions! Around here, my wife is the bake-meister. Works for both of us.

      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

      The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

      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!

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

      Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

      We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
