Default Re: 42" FB Pompeii Oven with 19" dome, and adjacent fireplace, in the O.C.

Last night was a great night! First full burn in the oven and after 2 hours the almond wood fire cleared the dome! (I expected it would as I have read but it was still a thrill to Actually see it happen).
Just as the dome cleared, I took some temp measures: I have k-wires 1 inch from fire in the top of the dome and mid wall, Additional probes Outside the dome on top, and mid wall, under the 2 inch floor tile, under the floor splits (on the insulation), and under the floor insulation.
Dome IN: 586 F
Dome Out: 515
Wall IN: 505
Wall OUT: 242
Floor 2in: 766
Floor Out:347
Base: 94
The laser thermometer was 354 on the dome arch 8 inches from the floor, the adjacent entry arch (with 1/4 gap stuffed with ceramic rope - no caulk) was about 276. The outer edge of the entry arch at the same height was 165. BTY I did not put any break in my floor tiles, just at the arch /entry connection and I will likely repeat at the Entry / decorative arch connection.
The dome continued to heat, but I turned my attention from thermometers to PIZZA 42" FB Pompeii Oven with 19" dome, and adjacent fireplace, in the O.C.-.facebook_-1805285185.jpg

586 was the temp one inch in at the top when the entire dome cleared (for the first time). The surface of the brick was 》800

ah - the thermocouple. I get it now. I was thinking that my dome only clears at about800, so wondering if it was a typo!

Enjoyed a full evening of Pizza fun.. Prepped 32 dough balls last night. Six families joined ours for dinner tonight: 25 pizzas consumed, One up in flames, three cooked as "Desert pizza" (chocolate and strawberries on dough), two cooked as "bread sticks" and one never made it to the oven but was fully enjoyed as "play dough". Put the door on and prepped some french bread for baking tomorrow after church (we will see if the oven remains hot enough).
Good times.

Pizza was great last night and baking from the same fire went well today. At 1pm the oven (with the door shut since last night) was 550 F. Baked 13 250 g loaves. My son is prepping dough tonight for a get together with his friends tomorrow evening - just before school starts. Glad to see the oven in action; functional but far from finished.

Had not considered prime rib.......I had a meeting late-night so my son was the pizza guy for his friends. 24 pizza served (Including two gluten free from a store bought mix). Closed the oven up last night at 10pm. Prepped to bake a few French loaves. Temp is 575 in the back wall 24hours later

I am very jealous, I wish I had gone with a Pompeii

My screen name alludes to my love for them. I'm hoping to start the works in for a 42" by the beginning of next spring. There might be a couple of monkey wrenches thrown in that could delay the process, but I plan to at least get started, and early too.
