Default Pizza Dough trays = humidity trays

I remember on this group how the question of finding good humidity
trays used to come up frequently.

recently I learned that the pizza industry uses a standardized tray to
ripen dough. A Google search on "dough tray" you will find lots of
examples of these for sale. From $5 used to $19 or so new. Stacks of
five. Lots of different colors, etc...

The interior of each tray measures 23"W x 15"D x 3"H.

Everybody who has ever worked in a pizza place recognizes these
trays. I don't know how all businesses handle used trays, but If you
have a Poppa John's Pizza place near you then hang around by their
dumpsters and try not to look too creepy and eventually they will
throw some of these out. When dough goes bad they toss out the whole
tray. Probably because it is cheaper to buy them new by the train
load than to sterilize and clean them. Dig them out of the dumpster,
clean them up and you got some pretty good humidity trays for free.

Dumpster diving. I so trashy! I am also fine. :-) It wasn't me who
collected them. A cusotmer of mine who has a tattoo parlor next to a
papa John's has been collecting them for his carniverous plant fetish
for while and just brought me a truck load of moldy icky trays to
clean. He didn't even charge me. They clean up well with a little
clorox and soap. And really are quite usable. I don't think it would
be wise to use any of the dough I found in them.

It may even be possible to string them together to use as ebb and flow
hydroponic trays.

I got an email from one you a while back asking where I have been and
mentioning my droll sence of humor being missed. Since the fire (18
months) I have been cursed with a weekly greenhouse maintenance
emergency. I guess after nearly 15 years everything that wasn't
destroyed is reaching the breaking point simultaneously. Very
frustrating. So... I thought I would come here and be droll for bit
and then go attack the frackin failing inflation blower with a chain
saw since the oil can no longer has any effect. Picture me up a
ladder with chain saw leaning way over.... Or better yet, come and
watch....and bring a mop.

Anyway, those trays would fit most people's humidity tray needs. Very
sturdy, they stack, and they are ubiqutous enough to be fairly cheap
compared with what you find when searching 'humidity tray'

Well, it's sure good to hear from you. For pictures, Ray set up a new group.
Info is on his web site. Most of us are limited by our ISPs and have a hard
time with abpo now.
