Don't worry about the cracks. They won't be a thought when you are cooking.

Did you get your hands on that Matrilite yet?

I'm really interested in finding some.
Please let me know when and where....

Thanks Richard ( I mean Robert)

Keep curing! You will be cooking soon my friend!

Repeat after me... best pizza I have ever had... best pizza I have ever had... what cracks? what cracks? etc. etc. do it again.. breath....breath..

Dave, I have moved on from the cracks. They exist, they will be fixed. For now, I have 1.5 hours left of day 3. Tomorrow is 600 degree day. My delimna now is that I am chewing threw the wood scrap. I know I have the fence materials, but it is smoky pine. I will need to pick up a fresh supply tomorrow morning and get a late start (10 am). Ooooh, what a late evening. Dinner with my oven.

In regards to your pizza peel set... jealousy erupts from each of my pores!


Lovely, is it the Forno Bravo set?

Here are a couple photos of cracks at the arch. The first is along the right side fron area, the second is along the top center. I am not going to stress on the cracks, I will address them upon completion of my curing.

You used 2 1/2 bags of refmix, 55 lbs? I used 150 lbs of HS50. Wow

I am not kidding, 4 to 5 long cracks wrapping around exterior perimeter, and each going up to the top. What is bizar is that none going through to interior dome, none are cracking bricks, none are seeping smoke. Of course I am early on the 500 session, and I still have others to go. I am thinking of continuing through the process, then I will grind the lines on the outside, get some furnace cement, and figure out the arch as well. I am not quite in the mood to do photos, sorry.
Robert , I know the feeling, that arch area is a monster. Keep up the faith!

Robert,
No big deal on the crack, especially if it doesn't get any worse. I wouldn't even try to fix it for about three months. It may never get any bigger and need no repair at all.
