How many pies did you make, probably around 20? How other did you heat the floor bake up. We did 5 pies last night and I probably would have reheated the floor after that if we were gong to make more.
Did a chicken today - love that retained heat.

RC, we made 11 pizzas, with 2 going home with guests. The day before I just 4x'd the caputo PDF measurements. My kitchenAid was brimming with dough
http://www.fornobravo.com/PDF/Using-caputo-tipo00.pdf

Everyone made and decorated their own. As for heat keeping up, we got the heat saturated to low 900's, then we cleared out much of the coal except some to maintain heat, and occasionally would put a log or two in as needed. I liked keeping the pizzas in certain areas (learning) so after 3 I would shift sides, move coals and wood. My goal was to maintain that 900 temp, and it worked great. As for today, my wife is picking up two chickens now and it should take 3 hours foiled. I want to get some Terracotta cookware. I want to cook other great foods in them for the oven.

Robert,
Everything looks great. How long did it take to get the oven saturated at 900 degrees? Also where are you getting that reading? When you say saturated , how deep into the brick are you getting the 900 reading?
Thanks,
jim

Robert - Fantastic job. I guess busting your butt in crazy temps is paying off. Good looking pizza. When I get to the point of fire - I know who to call.

Jim, when I say saturated, I should rephrase it. I have yet to hook up the thermocouples. I get to 900+ in about 20-30 minutes. It takes a little more than an hour at that temp for the whole oven to go white. I then go an extra 30 minutes of heating with plasma type heat. I went 2.5 hours pre party with this method. The heat stayed great once I took much of the coal out and used a log here and there. I will be more accurate when the TC's are hooked up and operational. The next day the oven floor was at 475 (front floor section) to 550 (in middle floor). This was almost 24 hours later. I still need to drive out much of the moisture, and add final insulation. My method has been the Infrared gun. After this all day cure method recently, I feel confident about saturation, and maintained heat. The TC's will tell me how true I am.
