Well its been a while since i've posted..I managed to do the curing fires before I went on vacation..and before Colorado Springs started on fire.. I ended up with some small mortar cracks, but nothing that is structural.. pizzas were damn good and now I will concentrate on finishing the oven! I wont be able to make any Pizzas or even use the oven until the city lifts the Burn BAN on outside fires.. even ones enclosed in Fireboxes..aka fire pits aka BBQ pits Dangit...

Thumbs up Re: The Backofen

Glad you are OK Trellis. Your oven is looking good!

The fire got within 150 yards of our old house on Granby Circle. Friends, neighbors and my brother had to evacuate....Some came back to ashes. One friend, who lived through WWII in Germany thought it was the end of the world. Her grandson helped her out to the car and the flames, smoke and embers were unbelievable....She made it with three suitcases....

Hey, Trellis:
Saw your message regarding my build. Thanks for the encouragement.
Congrats on your own success---you rocked getting that oven built! And the first pizza looks great. I hope that the continued threat from the fires out there hasn't prevented you from continuing to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
By the way, are you planning to brick in your chimney? I'm undecided still about how I will finish the enclosing structure after the oven is built, and always looking for ideas.
Robert
