Cool, now I want to see it in action. do you have any temperature readings before/after type of stuff?

It appears the plate sit's on the hearth.....Would it be good to have a space under it? Now what do I use for wheels....

Hope it's patented so you get the royalties

Thanks

XJim,
I tried the wheel thing but it was costing me a fortune in replacements and the rubber was a real pain to clean off the floor.

I will get some readings for you next weekend. At this point I can say that by the time the temp drops on one side from multiple pizza bakes I can throw it to that side and bake on the alternate while the first side recharges. Will get you time and temps next week; I dismantled my temporary chimney system to erect the final yesterday and want to give the mortar a week to cure. Which will also affect the timing of the video - - I will post some pics.

Yeah, as I said, the oak I am using isn't as seasoned as the seller would have had me believe, next time I will bring my moisture meter. But as mentioned above, apart from pizza cosmetics, the real value so far to me has been in managing the hearth temps. And while I haven't yet put the grill attachment to use I have parked the coals outside the oven while baking and then reinserted afterwards (to kiln dry my unseasoned wood).

Next week's video will now include "the George" a front log guard attachment and perhaps a ballbearing wheel system for XJim.

Thanks all,
Jim
