  1. I have 2 questions:
    1) Why does the rabbi not mention that the oven has to be cleaned before Kashering (from visible grease that accumulated on the walls and roof of the oven)?
    2) Kashering Libun Kal at 350 is not good enough because the בליעה is sometimes higher than that. (Some baking is done at 400-450 degrees and broiling temperature is around 500 degrees).

  2. In this Shiur the impression is that only with meat from an animal can one fulfill the obligation of eating “meat” on Yom Tov.
    While there are quite a few who hold like this there are others who say one can fulfill their obligation with the meat of foul (chicken etc.).
