Hi from Waterloo
I have been lurking for a while and decided to step up and say hello, At this point I have very little to offer as I am a total newby to baking. I have successfully made six loaves of basic bread and a number of sour"Cream" coffee cakes on my wood fired outdoor smoker. My hope is to learn more about bread and eventually build a brick oven. My motivation is from childhood memories of my grandmother baking large quantities of bread and coffee cakes for the farmers market. Since she past away 49 years ago I am really rely on a fuzy memory.LOL. This is a wonderful source of information for me and many of my beginner questions have been asked and answered on here.
My other passion is southern style smoked meat and my Collie dog.
