Outdoor Pizza Oven

These are the plans for the outdoor pizza oven I mentioned in an earlier post. Still not sure if this will be the final version, but if not it’ll at least be close.

Since I’m not experienced with masonry, I don’t want the first try to be one of the most complex of all things you can make in this field: a dome. So I’ll rely on an oil drum cut in half as the round shape and then add alternating  layers of concrete (portland cement) and insulation. 

Can’t wait to try it out! I’ll post the building process as soon as I’m at it.


Outdoor Kitchen Plans – Updated

I have invested a lot of brains and thinking in this project and now I have the (semi-) final concept ready so far.

It consists of a working area with a storage underneath (left part), then the grill with a height adjustable grate and shutters on front an top to simulate a weber grill. Also, with a removable frame for inserting a roasting spit (middle part). Finally, my oil drum smoker contraption (right side) with a separate firebox. Since we found a real ton of bricks unexpectedly, I plan to build everything as brick walls and only pour the countertops from concrete.

The next step will be planning a wood fired outdoor brick or concrete pizza oven. 


Pulled Lamb

Look at this guy’s pulled lamb! Looks so savoury I want to drown in it…


Homemade Vicks Rub

Since I’ve been really sick as fuck with a tenacious cold these days, here’s a formula for a homemade Vick’s Rub (german: “Wick VapoRub”). I used fragrant oil that I had at hand at home and it works.

– 1/2 cup coconut oil
– 10 drops eucalyptus oil
– 5 drops peppermint oil

Mix thoroughly and store in a tight container. Found here.


Le Fuc…

So it finally caught us. I don’t like winter… 🙁


Moo Shoo Chicken

This is Moo Shoo Chicken (although the chicken is still missing in the picture above), something that I didn’t make for quite a time. Originally the recipe is with pork, but I only had some chicken breast left so I didn’t care. Generally, since it’s not so easy to get hands on all the original japanese ingredients often called for in those recipes, you’ll have to substitute the one or the other item with what’s closest to the original anyway.


Another Recommendation: Author Daniel Suarez

Luckily, I have a lot of time for reading at the moment 🙂 So I want to introduce another Author to you that I like very much: Daniel Suarez (Wikipedia de|en). AFAIK, his best known books are the two associated Novels Daemon and Freedom (german: Darknet) drawing a conclusive scenery in the not too far future with an entraining plot and really cool writing. Enjoy reading!

Edit: OMFG, I forgot Influx (german: Control)!

6 Hints on camping for the first-timer

Hint #1: RV or Caravan?

A very basic decision… I’ve tried both and I, personally, came to the following conclusions: If you want to explore the surroundings of your campsite or destination extensively, a caravan should be the vehicle of your choice. You can just leave it on the campground and drive around with your car freely.

On the other hand, if you’re more of the “round trip guy” (as I am) an RV is clearly the better decision. It’s easier and faster to set up and dismount, it’s normally more spacious and often better equipped. But you have to take it with you every time you need a ride. Whereas, as a ride it’s far simpler to move and to handle than a car and trailer. Just take a bike with you for short distances.


Beautiful Autumnal Landscape

I might be a little over-excited about what I’ve done lately, but this is some of the surrounding landscape of the Northern Germany Outpost (“NGO” 🙂 ). Beautiful, isn’t it?

 


Fermented Chili Hot Sauce

This is the hot sauce that I made from the fermented chili project yesterday. I just added teaspoon of sugar and a dash of vinegar and mixed it until smooth in the grinder. Ladies and Gentlemen: This stuff can blow your scalp off…
