The Coldhitz Vlog
Hello, and welcome to "The Coldhitz Vlog" . My name is Larry , and I am the host of , and the man behind , "Pie In The Sky " , and "The Pie Vlog ". These are the two shows I use to teach the world how easy , and rewarding it is to bake their very own fresh pizzas. The two shows compliment each other , as "Pie In The Sky" is an instructional show , and "The Pie Vlog " serves as the question and answer aspect of the two shows. They are both featured on this Vlog ,which will be my main broadcast outlet , and on my Youtube channel , viewable at http://www.youtube.com/coldhitz. They are the first shows in what will become a full broadcast venue , centering on lifestyle and entertainment .
I chose to start with the subject I am most knowlegable of , and passionate about...pizza. My journey , in pursuite of the pie , started in High School. One day , in my Food Science and Nutriton class , my teacher asked us each to select one food we could never imagine being without. My father had been the only other person I ever saw make his own pizzas , so I grew up on fresh pizza , and already had the inside track on anyone that came out with the same answer. So , that's where I started , and after working in the restaurant biz , from waiter to delivery driver and manager , I've done it all. It's been a steady , and purposeful , journey. One that has taken me from , my home town of Dallas , to L.A. in search of the best pizzas , as I pursued a living as an actor.
Now , I'm out to help save the world , one delicious pizza at a time. With my skills as an actor , and my passion as a Pizzaiolo , I want to carve out my own niche in the world. The best way to start off , I believe , is by helping others , and greatness will follow my path. I will answer any pizza related question and welcome each of my viewers to send them in to the comments section , on "The Coldhitz Channel" at http://www.youtube.com/coldhitz, or to post a question to my video recorder , from your webcame , on this Vlog , or at http://www.bakespace.com/?coldhitz . You can also recod a video message , on your cellphone , 30 seconds maximum , and send it to text to email@example.com . AT&T , Sprint , and Verizon wireless seem to have the best data speeds , and at this time T-Mobile is lagging behind. Thank you for choosing to spend your viewing time with me , and soon your loved ones will be asking you to make pizza tonite.

How Do You Get The Daily Grind ?
Hello , everyone. There are allot of companies that have added burr grinders to their small appliance line up. The two I recommend are Capresso and Saeco. These manufacturers have a rock solid reputation , and are well respected among the bean sipping set. They are , often , the standard by which other companies are measured. When choosing your grinder , be aware that there is a quality grinder offered at several price points , across the entire lineup. Each one is still attached to the companies name , and will offer you the reliability you need , and the consistency of smooth operation and buzz generating satisfaction you paid for.
There are a few things to look for when selecting your purchase. First , and most important , is to have all metal gear drive and blade assembly. some lesser offerings can come with lexan or nylon internals and cause the build up of static electricity. When fine grinding for espresso is desired , the static build up will cause the biggest pain in the the morning mess you'll ever see. The grounds will gum up the grinder and stick to everything ... not worth a few bucks savings , so all metal. Next , you wanna look for cool operation . If there is a demo model in the store , try it out for a couple of runs and look for heat build up . If it gets hot , your grounds will get burned and that will impart a stale taste to your cup of miracle... this is no good. Those models which plug into the wall , I've found , run cooler and are a good bet for durability with even the most frequent use.
Now , on to hand grinders. I have a hand grinder that my father gave me. It was made by The Wrightsville Hardware Company , and is labeled Colonial Coffee Mill ... 1707. I don't really know if that's when it was made , or what , but it has an iron , hinged top and crank , with all steel internals and a wooden catch drawer and body. There's only one setting...medium grind , although a machinist could probably adjust that. It hasn't been used in a while , but last time I used it , my brew was great. Hand crank grinders are still made and preferred by some purists. They preserve the flavor of the bean ,with low heat operation , and can be adjusted with supplier furnished spacers. They also keep the quiet and peace of the morning , which I think is just about as good as gold. You need to look for the same all steel internals and can pick up a top notch model for around $ 30 bucks.
If any of you have found a specific model of grinder to be especially great , let my other viewers know , by posting a comment . Rock on you buzz loverz.
