Default Re: Perlite/Mizzou castable

I wish we knew what we were doing! We have been creating small curing fires, but we had the thermometer in the wrong position.. It was showing 200/250F, but when we moved to the top of the oven it bumped to 500F... We created some small cracks on the insulation, but the dome (that was already cured) is still perfect. How much should we worry?

Don't worry about the cracks in the insulation layer, it isn't structural.
But do follow the proper l curing schedule for the mizzou dome.

Thumbs up Re: Perlite/Mizzou castable

Hello !

Well, after about a good year of intense use we decided to move from San Diego to Portland and the oven was donated to some friends that participated in many pizza parties! It was not not possible to move it without damage, the insulation crumbled as the track drove the several miles between our backyards, but the dome was intact!

It was then patched and it has been serving pizzas three years strong!

All's well that ends well! Hard to turn your back on good work.
