You probably atleast have some hills. A new little park they opened here in Florida is called Vista View and has tons of hills. Do you know why? It use to be a garbage dump/landfill . Florida is very flat my friend, except in Miami, where the women make up for it

So how about those bavarian pretzels!

Yeah, Tusch... those have to be made with lye. Can't get browning like that with baking soda or eggwash! Well, I guess it's possible, but in that AB episode, he tried to use lye, but his "lawyers" stepped in a stopped him for liability reasons. I think he was just trying to make the point that pretzels taste better when made with lye. But how would I know... I've never made them without it!

(FishinDave... southern DE is completely flat like Florida.)

Wow, I think I know what I'll be making in the next week or so. I've already got several great mustards and those look excellent...

Hell those were even my Alton Brown baking soda specials. Didn't try to get lye. These are pretty damn good and real easy. But I can't wait to try the real thing.

So yeah, you can get good browning with the baking soda and egg wash, but I can imagine it still can't compare. Alton's recipe takes a couple hours, but only about 20 or 30 minutes of involvement. I let the dough rise for a good hour.

Oh hey, yeah I forgot. If you want to make a ton and then on party day, here is what I did...(I don't think I posted exactly what I did earlier)...Just bake them until they are 'set' at the recommended temp. What I mean is just until the dough isn't squishy. They should be pale, not brown. Cool them completely and immediately put them into freezer bags. You must do this or the salt will have water condense on it and make a mess. On party day just throw them onto baking trays and put them in the recommended temp, preheated. As soon as they get all nice and golden brown, they are ready.
