  • Iron Oven Dome!

    Hi all,

    I was thinking of building an oven with a floor made from fire bricks and a dome made from metal!

    PLease i would like your input on this idea, what do you think?

    - Has anyone tried it before? Would it work?

    - Will i get the desierd heat for pizza cooking?

    - Will it heat faster, and retain heat?

    - How thick should the dome insulation layer be?

    - How thick should the metal be? is 5mm enough?

    - If you make pizza in a brick oven vs. a brick floor with a metal dome, will they both taste the same?

    - Do you need to insulate the vent? will that help retain heat in the oven, or it dosent matter?

    thanks,

    southpaw

    I don't think the metal would retain enough heat.
