Default Re: How to insulate a cast iron pizza oven.

What about making a soft "hat" using rockwool covered all sides with heat resistent foil?
Would it stand the high temperatures?
It sure looks easier to make.

Should work fine, mineral wool has a melting point exceeding 2100*. Just make sure none of it is exposed..it's not food safe.

I will try mineral wool first.

This evening the kids made me cook pizza, although it was a storm and below zero freezing outside.
The stone in the oven got well over 750*F, but the air inside was not hot enough to crisp the top of the pizza. I guess the crazy weather cooled down the steel way too effective.

(I really think i should have a medal or something... Two times the storm blew the pizza away)
