Gang,

We ended up putting total of 1/4 inch of Type S over the perlcrete. I am now going to paint it with the Behr Stucco paint.

How long should I let the Type S cure?

Thanks
Dick

PS the pizzas have turned out great - actually NO issues at all!!!

Dick,

I'm in the process of applying stucco to my enclosure (Type S mortar/stucco mix). All the info I've found on the net recommends waiting 4-6 weeks before painting over the stucco. I think that gives everything time to cure. It'll also give you a chance to use the oven a bit and repair any cracks that appear in your finish coat.

Keep everything moist for 48-72 hours so it cures properly!

Default Oven Door and A question

Gang,

A friend of mine is fabricating the door. He roughed it out to see if it would fit right (fits great). There is 2" of FB board in the smaller section that will fit inside my oven arch.

Question.
My friend was going to weld all of the seams so thier "air" tight. However, should he drill a small hole on the outside into the cavity with the FB board? I know you don't want to expose the board to food but we were concerned with expansion/contraction and thought a small hole (to the outside) would be a good idea.

Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks
Dick

I don't see how it could hurt, and it sounds like a good idea. If I were to weld it - there would be no problem with expansion.

Very nice door!!

I'm curious what the hole would accomplish. Is it just to relieve air pressure when the FB Board expands? By the way, will the steel door expand too? Did you have to make it slightly smaller than the opening, or is it snug? I hope to follow a similar route.

DBhansen,

We were concerned that if we make the cavity air tight then there could be issues when it heats up -therefore the idea came up to put a small hole.

If the consensus is not to do it we won't. I just wasn't sure if it was needed or not. i just don't want the dorry cracking where the welds are.

Yes, the door fits a little loose so when it expands it won't get stuck (I already thought of that). I was maybe going to put some special fireplace rope around the inside of the door to help seal it off.

Thanks
Dick

One thought against the hole is that you really don't want to have constant contact with the ceramic fibers in the board. I would seal that guy up, and keep the insulation safely inside.
My two cents.

Default The Badger Build (Painted the dome)

Gang,

A little more progress to date:

Painted the dome with the Behr Stucco paint.
The door is fabricated with FB board on the inside (no hole) - I just need to paint it.

Next is to pour the landing. I'm glad I've started using it as I realized I don't want the landing to stick out as much as I thought. I really like being able to reach when buiding my fire.

So far the oven is working great! Approx 50 pizzas in total and all have come out really good. Now we're trying to use if for other things (I have 2 beer can chicken's in it right now) and I've used the front landing with the Tuscan grill for some filet's with a homemade Basil Pecan Pesto. I did use a pan of charcoal for the convenience factor.

Thanks
Dick

Dick - looks great. Just curious; how many times have you "hit" it with mortar to achieve the shape? I put one coat on last Saturday just to cover the vermiculite. When I look at it, all that comes to mind is "Damn it it Jim, I said dome, not cone"
