Awesome Podcast

Just found your podcast. Having built and cooked with my own Wood Fired Pizza oven for the last nine years, this podcast is very informative. Keep up the great work and I look forward to the new episodes!

A great contribution to the wood oven community

I think Mark is making a great contribution to the wood oven community. We can learn so much from each other by sharing our experience with the oven, and our passion for food and friends.
