Whenever we have guests, family or friends over we always end up in the kitchen. We wanted an area with different seating options and areas for people to hang out or help. Along with this, my wife loves to cook and my son wants to go to culinary school so things just evolved.....

Now I gotta see this clay smoker you're talking about..
It's a Primo. Started with a Green Egg, and moved to this one. Great cooker!

flour salt baking powder and sugar?
Yep.  for the biscuits, I cut in some vegetable shortening until it resembles a coarse meal, add some sage and thyme, then mix in some heavy cream.  For the pancakes I use melted butter, an egg and milk, with a dash of
My cast iron dutch oven with the lid that can become a small pan is like my top most useful item. My biggest issue is confidence in post cooking clean up. My MIL soaked mine so no picture of my actual set as I am in the process of repairing it.
I love using the pantry after organising everything. It makes things much easier to find and knowing what needs to be replenished. It takes time and effort to do but is worth it in the end.

Oh yeah and I forgot to include my favourite tools. Some carbon steel knives
