The "hot" new idea in our troop (you should pardon the pun, please) is to
take advantage of our gas grills and heat the oven up outside on the
propane fired grill. It has the advantage of:
a. not waiting until "honey" is out shopping for the day
b. not needing to run the fans/do potpourri (ugh) or any other
number of things
c. needing only the next dry day.
Blaine is right. Below is the most important instruction:
