I noticed that there’s a new episode of Better Homes and Gardens (Ep 32) which features Jason doing the business again - this time with an even easier approach.

My mate Mike from Perth has made the ultimate portable pizza oven. This one on a steel frame - that much even I can tell… I’m waiting for the full story.
