temp probe
 
gday guys and girls , firstly I would just like to say what a great forum this is and that you all have convinced me that I can build this thing!
So far I have layed the slab and mortared and made sure first concrete bricks are square and level. I got to thinking after seeing a few pics on this forum that some builders are incorporating what looks like an internal temp gauge!
I certainly would like to include that in my build and would appreciate any more info on the subject.
Cheers
dave

Hello, and welcome.

Search for thermocouple.

There's LOTS of information on the subject. The short version? Thermocouples are useful for serious bread baking and other retained heat tasks. They are less useful if pizza is your primary interest.

thx alot for the link , I think pizza will be the main dish on the menu but you never know? and I guess its a lot easier to build it in now than consider it later.
cheers

Hi Dave and welcome aboard.
Which part of Aus do you call home, as there might be plenty of local help that you can draw upon during your build.

Cheers.

I live in Hawthorn and seem to have caught this crazy disease of building a woodfire oven! it keeps me awake at night thinking of all the different ways I can do this thing. Already built myself an indipensible tool and im not even up to the dome! Main thing is its enjoyable and rewarding, pizza is a bonus!
will post some pics of progress very shortly.
cheers

We also have a copper "sheath" that the probe can fit into. The store is in Nunawading.

Hawthorn, SA or Victoria. If SA, the we could get together to discuss your progress.
The fun also continues when you start using it. Unfortunately, I don't use mine as often as I should.

Re: temp probe
 
Johnny,
Why do you use a copper sheath? Copper is an extremely good conductor and will pull heat from the inside to the outside.Its thermal conductivity is 400W/mK compared to that of stainless steel 16W/mK Much better off with a stainless steel sleeve and as thin as possible.
