OOO your comment worries me a little. I can never make my gas burner in contact to the floor

By referring to accident, do you mean it could blow up? I have given the oven breath hole and an exhaust as well.

I think you are right david. My oven is still new and there might be a lot of moisture in the bricks. Even though, when I closely looked at the floor, I can still see the moist bricks.

I'll surely come back when my oven floor is dried out and will share my experience.

Thanks & Regards,

Ahmad

I'd like to share another thing that my gas burner is not the ideal one. Fornobravo states that the best gas burner is the one with a very large flame rather my burner has got many small flames .

Will be interested in hearing if that burner will heat that oven to the required temps once it's dried out. What size is it?

Sounds like the burner is a gas ring that is used for boiling a kettle or something?

Edit:-
I found this old thread about how many BTU's you need to heat an oven to pizza temps.

Yes, if the flame goes out and you relight it without realising you could damage yourself.

Maybe thats why its not heating, too many ways out for the heat.
A picture would help.

"But I was thinking it should be cured after 3 drying fires."

Curing can take some time and should not be rushed. You have to be patient at this stage.

I think your right Brickie, no breath hole necessary.

@brickie

No, its not a round burner. I have built the burner myself. Its a 2 feet long steel pipe with around 12 holes in it for the gas to come out and burn. I'll share some pics on weekend

And I was aware of the gas blowing risk, that's why if the flame goes out, I turn the gas valve off and I have a 4 feet long torch to ignite the flame keeping myself at a safe distance from the oven opening

@lwood

I'll shut off the breath hole and narrow down the exhaust as well. And I'll be adding more powerful burner in the oven this weekend

Thanks & Regards,
Ahmad

It is the position of Forno Bravo that homemade gas burners in pizza ovens are unsafe. Please take all discussion of how to fire your oven with gas offline. Thanks.
