Loyal readers will recall a dry nasty looking woodfire experience I mentioned in my last post. Well, someone suggested that a teaspoon of Gerstley Borate and a pinch of Bentonite in a cup of hot water sprayed on the pots would provide enough flux to shine up the pots when fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln. (Be sure you put wads under them and use a good coat of kiln wash on your shelves just in case). It seemed to work best where there was some ash deposit but saved most of the pots from meeting the "Hammer of Truth".
Finally, the smoked chicken recipe from last time should start out - Put TWO split chickens on the grill. It was much too good to only do one. Hope to see some of you at Waynesville this Saturday. It looks like the show site is being moved closer to the center of town. That should help.
