Tip - Exact positioning of roaster cover over bread

Lately during baking the bread’s sides has come in contact with my roasting cover. In order to prevent this I placed the roasting cover on my stone and traced the outline with a pencil. Now when the hot oven is ready I position the dough (on parchment) exactly in the middle of the outline. Then place the cover over the penciled marks.

This has solved my problem. It also helps when misting every 5 minutes to add additional steam.

I always post tips with “Tip - “ at the beginning of the subject line. I had hoped that doing this would make a search pull them all up at once. Unfortunately, It doesn’t work with Floyd’s query.
