Here's a few shots of the porchetta 2 hours in.....

This thing has splattered grease everywhere! On the floor, on the dome, on the walls! Nothing that my next fire won't take care of though! If you look close you can see the marks on the back wall of the dome.

After putting them in, I closed my "door".

Here is a better pic of how to make a temporary door.

If anyone has 2 or 3 square feet if Isol board left, I would be happy to buy it from you for my door.
Even if it is several smaller pieces.

And finally a shot of the internal temps of my oven.

The finished cinnamon rolls.


And a couple pics of the rolls I made this morning to eat the porcetta on.

I cooked them directly on the floor.

I did spray water into the oven before cooking and I shut the door. 6 minutes of cooking with the door in place and about 5 without it.

Hungry yet?

I am!

Dave

Me too. Dave, you need to stop with such detail, unless you fly us there for dinner. Wait a minute, we can get UPS to do same day delivery Ken?

Dave, I would say to get in there and cosmetically, beneficially seal the crack. It sucks to have that within full visibility, after such hard and intense work. There is something to do, i'm sure, without dome reconstruct..

I was sort of thinking Dave should leave the crack alone. The oven seems to really want an expansion crack there. If you seal it up, it'll probably just crack again.

If you have insulation behind it, I doubt you'll lose much heat. It gives your oven personality.

Yeah.. it doesnt really bother me.
But I am afraid it was caused by the slab settling.
I also have a crack in my stand slab... the same spot..

But I think it is done.... fingers crossed.

I did think ... that it was weird, because it cracked across bricks.. not just on the mortar joints like I thought it might do.

I'm curious to hear what some of the old-timers recommend.

Will you look at the food you are cooking in that oven!!! Its BRILLIANT - so who cares about a bit of cracking??!!

I agree with Ken, unless anyone has a really good reason why you should do anything about the crack, leave well enough alone... and continue to post your delicious looking cooking
