Thank you my friends. Hope to get some time to use those new elements now

My kiln is SMOKIN'!!! It had gotten to where it took almost 12 hours to fire to ^04. A nice slow firing is not a bad thing when your kiln is automatic and you can set it & forget it. But mine is a manual - that means I have to turn it from low to medium, from medium to high, then make sure it shuts off when it reaches temp. So a 12 hour firing is an all day affair for me. Now it fires in half the time! Graph below shows today's firing. The red line is a rapid fire ramp, good for paperclay or well dried clay with little chance of bubbles - 270 degree increase per hour. The blue line is a slow fire ramp at 108 degree increase per hour. The green one was my plotted temps for today, a little faster than it should have. Will leave it longer on low and on medium next time. It also shut off about 300 degrees cooler than it should have. That means I either accidentally put in a ^06 pyro bar or else I need to re-adjust the KilnSitter after I pulled it apart and put it back together

I usually turn the kiln on to low at 6:30am when I leave for work, to medium when I get home at 4pm, to high at 5pm, then it will turn off before I go to bed around 10pm. Works for me.

Mike, congrats- and thanks for the kiln setter walk through, too. We have a few automatic Skutt kilns in the studio, which is definitely a "set it and forget it" method.... Much appreciated!

Tried out the new kiln elements with this ceramic pig head for a beer can chicken

A whole pig cooking in an imu is great for a backyard luau, but sometimes you have a smaller crowd. This ceramic pig head fits into the neck hole of a beer can chicken. Add the ceramic coconut bra after cooking and you’ve got a party!
Since I stole the idea, the least I can do is to give the originator a bit of
free advertising

You graph quite well Mike.

I thought that chicken had a portobella mushroom bra.
I thought that was brilliant.
Do mushrooms go with chicken?
What do I know?
